Application

I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Stein Mart.

Interview

I applied online and received a call about a week and a half later. I called them back and they said they wanted to set up a time for an interview. When the time came, I went in and I told the cashier up front that I was here for an interview. They called the manager up the front and we went and sat outside on a bench. She mainly told me about the company and what is expected of employees. I got an email 3 days after the interview offering me the job.

    I applied online. I interviewed at Stein Mart.

    Interview

    After completing the interview process online for a new store in my area I received call to come into the store for an interview. The person who was interviewing me arrived a few minutes late which was aggravating since because the store was not open I was waiting outside. The interview itself was informal, especially since it was conducted on folding chairs in a building that was still under construction. After what I would rate a as a distinctly neutral interview I was told I would receive a call back within several days. I called a week later and was told to call back again several days later which I did and was again told to call back several days later. At that point I moved on.

    Interview

    It was in-person. Past personal social experiences were quite helpful. The questions were about how I would interact with other customers and how I would help out the company. They also were based on how I would perform under certain pressure in specific situations.

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 7+ months. I interviewed at Stein Mart.

    Interview

    I had originally applied in May and the manager decided to call me in December. Before he called I was told I would be contacted quite a few times after he checked my availability. The interview was pretty normal but he wouldn't let me refer back to my school club leadership experience which is all I had. They were very disorganized.

    I applied online. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at Stein Mart (Tucson, AZ) in October 2013.

    Interview

    It was super laid back and short. They just chatted with me about my work history and interest in Steinmart. It's nothing to be nervous about. They'll ask you what your interests are and if you see yourself working with the company long-term. Usually, they need you more than you need them.

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Stein Mart.

    Interview

    My interview was very unorganized. The manager wasn't aware that I was coming and didn't prepare any questions and had no idea who I was. She asked for my availability and told me about the store then gave me a tour. From what I heard from other employees, they are very simple. Most likely you will be hired if you're called in for an interview.
