    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Pet Supplies Plus in August 2014.

    Interview Details

    I was contacted by a head hunter for the company which was a 2 hour phone interview that I passed next was another phone interview with the business partner. The final step was with the district manager who made it painfully obvious he was not interested in what I had to offer. I later found out it was because of the company I come from which is Target. I was blown away from the waste of time and discrimination these people put me through.

    Application Details

    I applied in-person – interviewed at Pet Supplies Plus in July 2014.

    Interview Details

    Downloaded application from website, printed, filled, gave to store manager. Nothing happened, so I found another job in retail. They called me back after 5 months. I was not very happy about my current job so I went on interview. Interview with two managers. Questions were simple, pretty typical for retail. What if customer wants something we don't carry in our store. What if customer has copied or altered coupon and insists you should take it. What if customer is upset and screaming on you. The right answer for all this - Call you manager. Do you have pets? - don't panic if you don't, tell about hamster or goldfish you had in your childhood, it will be more than enough. Questions about availability - just tell them truth. About work conditions - Cat litter can be heavy, do you have any problems lifting things? - I guess also truth. Couple questions about job experience, not many though. They didn't ask for references and as I understand no background check either. They didn't call for few days, so I called them myself and they told to start next week.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Pet Supplies Plus in November 2013.

    Interview Details

    I applied for the position online, and was called about 3 weeks after doing so. I got called in to do an interview, which was the most unprofessional experience I have ever been to. We were standing up the whole time, and one of the interviewers halfway through. The questions were ridiculous, and the interviewer who stayed put asked the questions from a sheet that he had over his face, so he wasn't even making eye contact with me. They asked questions that you would only have known if you already started working there (they did not specify that you needed pet knowledge prior to being hired, and even when I have been there as a customer, the sales people had no idea how to help me, so there is obviously not a good training period either). By the end of the interview the manager who left came back in and said "did I miss anything?". Yes you did, my whole interview. The bottom line is that the people were miserable and unprofessional

    Interview Questions
    • Some "for instance" questions were asked, but he did not read them as "this happens, what would you say?" He just made a statement and stared at me. One was " A woman is buying litter, and is undecided. Clump or non-clump" ..."just say anything." Then, "she buys the one brand." It was all over the place.   Answer Question

    Interview Details

    I went online to fill out the application and go through a process of personality evaluations and simulations. Then I was called in, talked a bit with the manager, and they called me back for a drug test. That's when they gave me my shirt, had me work half a shift, and welcomed me aboard.
