I applied online. The process took 3 daysinterviewed at Sur La Table.

Interview Details

The process was very unusual, as I was interviewed on the sales floor, while the MGR was assisting customers. It was rather stressful. The questions were read off of a clipboard.

Interview Questions
  • The MGR asked me to sell her something off of the sales floor. Not having knowledge of the item made this challenging.   Answer Question

    Pretty standard interview process.
    They are looking for people who can think on their feet.
    Lot's of questions about what you cook or like to eat.
    Most questions focussed on managing people and what you would do in certain situations.
    It's important to demonstrate that you are more than just a task master, and you have aspirations to do more.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took a weekinterviewed at Sur La Table in September 2012.

    Interview Details

    Completed an online application along with submitting resume and cover letter. Got a call from the store manager 3 days later. She did a mini phone interview and scheduled a face to face interview 2 days later. Face to face interview lasted about 45 minutes, most of the questions about past sales performance, management style and what skills I could bring to the company. At the end of the interview I was scheduled for a phone interview with the District Manager the next day. The phone interview lasted about 20 minutes, again focusing on past sales performance and management skills. I was emailed information about a background check and was offered the position 5 days later.

    Interview Questions
    • If you could buy anything in the store what would you buy? How would you sell it to a customer?   Answer Question

    Salary offered was more than I expected. Benefits package is great and kicks in quickly. Negotiated starting time based on notice given to previous employer and the needs of the new position.
