    Application Details

    I applied online – interviewed at The Buckle.

    Interview Details

    Interview consisted of "Tell me a time..." questions. I was hired on-the-spot as an Assistant Manager. However, after hiring, I was unknown titled "Assistant Manager in Training", because an Assistant Manager was already employed in the store (which wasn't explained in the interview).

    I applied through other source. The process took a weekinterviewed at The Buckle in January 2015.

    Interview Details

    I received an email and set up my interview. I arrived 10 minutes early and they told me to look around the store. I did and the manager came up to me and asked me things about school and extracurricular activities. The interview went well and the manager said I would receive an email or phone call. But I got an email saying I wasn't selected. The reason had to be because I wasn't available on weekends.

    Application Details

    I applied online – interviewed at The Buckle in January 2015.

    Interview Details

    Walked in, was greeted by the manager she was very friendly told her I was there for an interview, She wasn't snobby or acted like she was better than me(which what I was worried about reading previous interviews on here) the other works greeted me and were nice and then they proceeded to help customers and do their jobs. The manager went and pulled my application We walked back by the jeans and did the interview on the floor. I personally liked it on the floor since she is a manager she could keep an eye on the customers. She asked me questions and let me know that they can't hire until March and if I would be interested even if I had to wait till then I told her yes and she said she will either call or email me after she talks it over with the other manager.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at The Buckle in January 2015.

    Interview Details

    Very unprofessional the interview was conducted on the sells floor. The hiring manager was pushy and attempted to sell me on clothing within the interview as well as scamming me into getting a buckle credit card claiming that it was to gather more info about me. There were not many minority employees working there and the manager was pushy like a car salesman.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 5 daysinterviewed at The Buckle in December 2014.

    Interview Details

    Interview process was fairly quick. I filled out an online application and received an email back the next day. We scheduled an interview for a couple days later, where I had a pretty casual interview on the sales floor with the store manager. She was really nice and the whole process was fairly easy going. She told me she would have to speak with her boss about me and would get back to me as soon as possible. She called me two days later saying that the job was mine if I wanted it.

    Interview Questions
    • Most of the questions were personality based, such as "tell me about a time you had to juggle multiple tasks at once," or "tell me about a time you had to work as part of a team."   View Answer
    Reasons for Declining

    While the job itself sounded like a really great opportunity, the pay unfortunately was too far from what I wanted. Pay there is commission based, so you are offered a base pay and are expected to make up the difference with how much product you sell. The base pay they offered me was $6.00 an hour, with 3% commission (they told me with my commission, I should expect to make $11.00 an hour) This was far too low to be able to pay my monthly bills and to start making payments on my student loans, so I had to decline the offer.

    Sales & Management Interview

    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at The Buckle.

    Interview Details

    Spoke with a Buckle Representative at a college career fair. She was very friendly and when I asked about Follow-Up she told me I could sign up for an interview time. I went to the interview a week later. The dress was "your style", not the usual business formal you would think of for an interview. It was in the back storage room of one of their stores with two managers from different Buckle locations. They were really friendly and casual. We had about a twenty minute conversation and they said they would get back to me in 48 hours. They didn't get back to me until a day or two past that mark. I am interested in management and not really sales or retail. Although we had a nice conversation, it was pretty apparent during the interview that it probably wasn't a good fit for either of us.
