Assistant Store Manager Interview

Easy Interview

Application

I applied online. The process took 2 daysinterviewed at Spirit Halloween.

Interview

I applied on their website and about a week later got a call to come in for an interview. The store I interviewed for had opened up late and was still in set up mode when I had come in. So we had to sit down on boxes. On top of being slightly nervous the AC in the store wasn't working, so both I and my boss were sweating during the whole interview. Despite the initial unusual circumstances, my employer made me feel very comfortable, and we ended up having the most laid back interview I've probably ever had.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Spirit Halloween in July 2014.

    Interview

    I applied online in mid July and received a call a few days later from the District Manager and had a brief phone interview. We then set up a face to face interview for a week later. We met at Dunkin Donuts and had a lengthy interview. He bought me coffee and we chatted for around 45 minutes. The interview was formal in the sense that he was following a corporate outline of prewritten questions but our conversations were relatively informal. I applied for a Sales Associate position but he believed that I'd be better in a management position so he interviewed me for an Assistant Managing position. He made me an offer at the end of the interview. After accepting the offer he had to run a background check and call my references. I was officially hired in a few days later.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a weekinterviewed at Spirit Halloween.

    Interview

    There was one interview with both the Store Manager and the District Manger. The interview was very informal/ laid back.

    Interview Questions

    • There weren't any particularly hard questions. Very standard interview questions for retail management.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    The negotiation phase was to be low balled and see if you bite. I reminded that DM of my experience level and let him know what I would be willing to accept. He returned with a second more suitable offer, which I accepted.
