    Assistant Manager of Merchandising Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Tempe, AZ
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Tempe, AZ
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Paradies Shops.

    Interview Details

    fairly easy process. Applied online and then was contacted by a recruiter for a phone interview. Had to go through several emails with the recruiter because she travels a lot, so ended up having it a week after it was supposed to be. Was then contacted by the General Manager at the airport of the job and brought in for an interview with him and his boss. Fairly standard interview, they seem to be looking for someone who has a professional business mind, but can keep up with the hectic pace of working in an airport. Please note: you must be willing to relocate if you take this position. They like to promote from within and that always means sending you to another location seeing as there aren't multiple main airports in every location. Was told I would find out whether or not I received the position, but 3 weeks later have still heard nothing.

    The interview process was pretty straight forward. If you don't get the job, they let you know with in a week. The questions are challenging, but make for good engaging conversation. Over all everyone is nice and enjoyable to talk to.

    I applied online. The process took a weekinterviewed at Paradies Shops.

    Interview Details

    I applied online, a week later got a call back. The interview was very easy, asked behavior questions, passed work experience, and future goals. They offer benefits even to part timers! People that have worked there have been there for years, so there is not a lot of room to move around.

    Reasons for Declining

    The pay was extremely low $8.50, i was making 13.00 from my previous job

    Interview Details

    It will be difficult to actually get in at a specific time to get an interview, if you get a call at all. Many times applications are "lost". The General Manager is not coordinated enough in the schedule to keep a specified appointment time with applicants. Expect to wait.

    Interview Questions
    • "We sometimes call people in even when they are not on the schedule to cover someone else's shift." Take this seriously, as there is no overtime and if you do not make the time on your day off, or even if you miss the call it will reflect negatively on your performance.   Answer Question

    Assistant Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Atlanta, GA
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Atlanta, GA
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at Paradies Shops in May 2012.

    Interview Details

    I initially applied on a Friday and I heard a response that same day. I had a total of 4 interviews...very detailed, very precise. I met with the Regional Director and the Senior Partners through this decision making process. The interviews felt more like detailed conversations of the expectations of the company as well as how my previous experiences applied to the position I was applying to. I am a naturally energetic person, so interviews do not bother me, but for the average person, this process is a little overwhelming, but the compensation is definitely worth the wait time.

    Interview Questions
    • How would your current supervisor rate you?   Answer Question
    • What is one situation that was extremely difficult in regards to a customer, how would you handle it and what would you change?   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    They asked me a number of questions in regards to my last employer to make sure that their offer was comparable enough to recruit me. From salary, bonus, medical deductibles, it was very thorough.

    Interview Details

    The interview is easy. For guys make sure you are dressed nice and clean shaven. No long hair on men. They ask questions and want to higher people quickly. So it is all going to be basic. What do you know about the company? Are you aware of this or that? Nothing that really effects your chances.
