Sales Associate Interview

Application Details

I interviewed in-person - interviewed at Skechers U.S.A..

Interview Details

I was working for retail for the past a year and half. Initially I became an associate by walking in for an application. They liked my first impression and told me to come by the store the very next day for an interview with the store manager. He asked me couple of questions about myself and my past work experience. It was a very chill interview process. The store manager was very laid back.

    I interviewed online. The process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Skechers U.S.A. in June 2012.

    Interview Details

    The interview was laid back and rather casual. I met the manager at another store front and we had an interview in the break room. Simple questions such as: Where do you see yourself in 5 years? What would you do if a customer demanded a sale price that was no longer valid?

    Interview Questions
    • Nothing really unexpected. They wanted to know if you are familiar with their product, especially the new ones.   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    They asked what was reasonable? I started high (this is entry level retail) I said 10 or 11 dollars an hour. He responded that was much too high and that the going rate was lower. So we landed on a fair rate of compensation.

    Interview Details

    Easy interview process. I went in and applied at the store and then I got a call for an interview. It was relaxed , better than most interviews go. Overall , they just want to know about yourself and how you can be an asset to the store and overall company you are working for.

    There is a low and high for wages. But from as far as I can tell, the wage is determined by previous experience.

    I interviewed online. The process took 1 week - interviewed at Skechers U.S.A. in June 2011.

    Interview Details

    First I was interviewed by the current store manager and my second interview was the District Manager. Some other associates had a group interview first, instead of a one on one like I did. The store wasn't open yet, it was still being built so we met in the mall near a coffee shop.

    Interview Questions

    Negotiation Details
    I was not even told my pay during the second interview, because I didn't know if I had the job yet. I found out during my 3rd working day.
