    Sales Associate Interview

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Once Upon A Child in June 2015.

    Interview

    Extremely easy and laid back interview. They hire more on personality than job experience. My interview was held in a very dirty break room, which wasn't so great but it works. The two managers that first interviewed me made me feel very welcome and made jokes the entire time. The second interview with the owner went well too. The owner treated me like she had known me forever and they were very sweet to me.

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Once Upon A Child (Greenville, SC) in November 2013.

    Interview

    It was very unprofessional. Walked in to apply in jeans and a tshirt and was hired on the spot with hardly no interview questions or reference checks. It felt very rushed to me. No background or drug test for someone who works around kids. Very sketchy.

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Once Upon A Child.

    Interview

    Honestly, the hiring manager just asked me what kind of hours and experience I had and I was hired on the spot. Because we were just opening I had to attend some training times over the following week but that's about it.
