    Interview Details

    I only had one interview and was hired on the spot. Started working there less than a week from when I got the interview it went very smoothly. The training was a little rushed and they wondered why I always asked questions about cashiering.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 1+ weekinterviewed at Shoe Carnival in July 2014.

    Interview Details

    So I was applying for jobs online and I applied for shoe carnival. I really didn't expect a call back because I didn't think they were hiring at the time but the called me about 10 days after I sent the application online and ask for an interview either that day or the following but I agreed to that day. So I went to the interview a little earlier and met with a supervisor. Since I'm still in high school I was only asked like 5 questions and the supervisor said I did good. So I went to get my work permit and now I'm waiting on a call back once my background check clears.

    Floor Supervisor Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

    I applied in-person. The process took 4 daysinterviewed at Shoe Carnival in February 2012.

    Interview Details

    For the position of Floor Supervisor, the lowest paid full time position the company offers, the interview process is just ridiculous. I went through a four day process which included three face to face interviews and one telephone interview, for a position that paid $9.15/hr.

    During the interview process two positions were mentioned. The funny thing was that it wasn't until my fourth day of employment that I actually found out what position I was hired for.

    Overall, it was a very unprofessional experience.

    Interview Questions
    • No questions were difficult or unexpected. The interview experience was relatively easy.   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    Quite pathetic. I was offered $9.15/hr and told that after thirty days I would get a $1/hr raise. What I wasn't told was that would have to take a test before getting that raise. While the test was simple, I wasn't even told about the test until after the 30 day mark.

    E-commerce Interview

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at Shoe Carnival in March 2011.

    Interview Details

    Seemed like a good executive team but light years behind the times as it relates to E-Commerce and digital. Strange that partners were selected first prior to the business VP---think they realized late that they needed incremental skills to run the online business. Verbally told I was being called back. Contacted HR multiple times. Was told of delays. Heard via social media channels that another offer was made with no HR contact. Lack integrity!
