    In the interview process the assistant manager was very outgoing and talkative the team leader was dry and hard to read almost as if I bored him. Beautiful store. They hold interviews on a daily.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 4 days - interviewed at Plum Market.

    Interview Details

    I was referred by a friend who already had a job there and I filled out the application online.
    Took an initial phone interview which was mostly just "getting to know you" questions (past work experience, how do you know the friend who referred you, etc) then I was asked to come in for the more formal interview.
    Everything was pretty standard.
    "Tell me about a time where you had to make an important work decision."
    "Who was your best boss and why?"
    "Have you ever had to deal with a coworker you didn't get along with."

    Interview Questions
    • "Are you comfortable working for a company owner who can be irrational and extremely rude sometimes?"   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    Make sure you ask for what you're worth, and don't start the job until you get it.

    Director Interview

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 5 days - interviewed at Plum Market in April 2011.

    Interview Details

    Interview process was pretty standard. Except I was asked 2 questions I know are illegal:
    Do you plan on having kids? - so ilegal
    What kind of car do you drive? - you can only ask if they have reliable transportation.

    I interviewed first with an HR manager type, although that was not his title. On the second interview I met the owner. He was the one who asked the illegal questions. I noticed this right away as I used to hire people myself.

    Application Details

    I applied online - interviewed at Plum Market.

    Interview Details

    I was looking to apply at a stock person for "Plum Market". They offered me 9 dollars an hour which for the work they wanted to do was a total joke. They could never guarantee my hours either. Don't waste your breath here NOT WORTH IT unless you want to work for peanuts. Their stuff is WAY overpriced as well.

    Interview Questions
    • They wanted to know about my family life, as if that was any of their business.   Answer Question
