    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online – interviewed at Shoe Carnival (Sioux Falls, SD).

    Interview

    Well thought out and all questions were appropriate for the position. The GM made me feel relaxed and not so worried about the interview as well. The entire interview process went quite smooth. As with most larger companies they use a template and choose what questions they are going to ask in the interview. This made them look prepared and like a professional company.

    I applied online. The process took 5 daysinterviewed at Shoe Carnival.

    Interview

    The application process is online on Shoecarnival.com, this process can take up to 30 mins. There are two interview process, Phone interview and In person interview. During the phone interview you are asked very straightforward questions, there are no unique questions, these are typical, basic interview questions that employers ask. If they think you will be right for the job, they invite you for the next step, which is the in person interview. This usually will take 30 minutes or maybe less, the questions are not challenging, they are basic interview questions that you can look up and practice.

    Interview Questions

    • There were not any difficult or unexpected questions, they were all very generic. One of the questions maybe you can say was unexpected, was "What are you hoping to get out of this job?", but I do not think that is difficult.   Answer Question

    There was no circumstances that needed negotiations.

    Interview

    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

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

    Interview

    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.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ weeksinterviewed at Shoe Carnival (Mansfield, TX) in July 2014.

    Interview

    I applied during the first week of June. They called me during the first week of July to schedule an interview. The interview was a few days later with one of the assistant managers. She was friendly and asked me basic interview questions as far as I remember. She said they would call me back for a second interview, and I was called about a week or two later. The second interview was mostly about availability and ability to work, etc. I was then required to go to a short meeting before being able to work.
