    Palm Beach Tan Shift Leader Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

    I applied in-person – interviewed at Palm Beach Tan.

    Interview Details

    Do not ever apply just online. Always go into a store and ask for an application and if they are hiring.
    If called for a first interview you will meet with the Store Manager and the second interview is with District Manager. Very basic questions. (Explain how you would deal with a conflict, What does customer service mean to you, give examples of how you persuaded a customer to buy something in the past). Must be very outgoing and personable. This is a customer service and sales position. Must be able to close a sale.

    Interview Questions
    • During the interview they give you a 5 lotion pull-down, which means that they will basically give you 5 of there products, let you read the back of them and review them for 15 minutes and then you have to try explain and sell the items to the Manager. Also, I had a manager ask me how I would sell a Dr. Pepper soft drink to a customer who does not drink caffeine. It was really weird and hard.   View Answer

    I applied in-person. The process took 2 daysinterviewed at Palm Beach Tan.

    Interview Details

    I was a current customer of the salaon and saw a sign in the window so I filled out an application on site and was given my first interview immediately. They asked very general customer service questions then would pick something random (eg: your jeans or bag) and tell you to sell it to them. once you got through the interview they would call you and tell you where to go complete a drug screening and a skills test that you must pass with a 70 or higher containing everyday math and problem solving questions

    Interview Questions
    • some of the arithmetic querstions on the skills test were difficult because you dont have a lot of time to waste and technically arent supposed to use calculators though if you know how to use a computer u can open the windows based calculator and use it on screen.   View Answer

    Palm Beach Tan Shift Leader Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Chicago, IL
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Chicago, IL
    Application Details

    I applied in-person. The process took 6+ monthsinterviewed at Palm Beach Tan in September 2012.

    Interview Details

    Had just fired someone. Hiring store was in need of a worker desperately for weekends. revious retail experience so it was extremely easy. If you can pass a drug/background test and can say you will do your best to sell you can absolutely get the job. The company/store hires on solely as needed basis, never to expand or improve just for weekend help. PBT needs to be opening new stores in order to hire people for normal (non-weekend) hours.

    Interview Questions
    • Same as most other interviews, name a difficult situation with a customer and how you handled it.   View Answer

    None. Minimum wage, no negotiation.

    Sales Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Austin, TX
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Austin, TX
    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Palm Beach Tan in April 2012.

    Interview Details

    Basic interview with a twist.

    We covered my previous experience, especially my former sales and customer service experience.

    They really like curve ball questions... what was your worst employer like, what was a difficult situation you had with a customer / coworker.

    They were very interested in your personal tanning experience, whether or not you buy lotion when you tan (the answer to this will MAKE OR BREAK your interview). You will be asked to sell tanning lotion to your interviewer.... remember to ask for the sale!

    Interview Questions
    • The lotion presentation - knowing nothing about tanning or tanning lotion ingredients, I fumbled... but what I lacked in knowledge I made for in enthusiasm. The ingredients are hard to pronounce, just work with what you know and make sure to talk about how it will benefit the consumer, lots of descriptive words like luxurious, amazing color, etc.   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    There wasn't one, take it or leave it kind of offer.
