Application Details

I applied online – interviewed at Stein Mart.

Interview Details

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.

    Application Details

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

    Interview Details

    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 2 weeksinterviewed at Stein Mart.

    Interview Details

    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.

    I applied in-person. The process took 4 daysinterviewed at Stein Mart.

    Interview Details

    I stopped in the store and turned in an application. A couple of days later I was called in for an interview. I interviewed with the manager of the ladies dept. and was offered a part-time position on the spot. More recently, we have told people who come in asking about employment to go to our website and fill out an application online. From there we'll be able to view your application, and if we're interested, you'll be invited to interview with our assistant manager.

    I applied online. The process took a weekinterviewed at Stein Mart in July 2012.

    Interview Details

    Applied online and was called less than a week later. I had one interview with the assistant manager. They were very friendly and asked the normal interview questions, such as tell me about yourself, what were your previous jobs, etc. Then they went over the store details, job details, and pay and asked if I was interested. I said yes and was told I would get a call back a few days later as there were other interviewees. I did get a call back on the day promised and was offered a job.
