    Sales Associate Interview

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2 daysinterviewed at The Buckle.

    Interview Details

    The interview took place on the sales floor in the back of the store. The manager asked me a few questions about why I wanted to work there and how good I was at selling at my last retail job. I asked on the phone when they scheduled my interview if I should dress professionally or if I should wear something I would wear if I worked there. The manager said, "Wear whatever you think is appropriate." I ended up wearing black pants and a nice top just to be safe. I could tell she liked me but was skeptical about my style because they asked me back on another day for a five minute interview with a team lead, probably to evaluate how I dressed and whether I would fit in. That time, I wore a more casual outfit and was offered the position later that day.

    Interview Details

    I applied online, and got a call back about a week later for an interview. The interview was on the sales floor, in the back of the store. I spoke with the Sales Manager, who was super friendly and chill. The interview lasted about 30 minutes, she just asked typical interview questions, and I was offered the job right there.

    Sales Associate Interview

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took a dayinterviewed at The Buckle in March 2015.

    Interview Details

    I applied online & got an e-mail saying they wanted to schedule me for an interview. I arrived to the interview 30 minutes early. Two different associates had to keep going back and telling the manager I was here (he was on an important phone call.) He came out and apologized. I was patient, though (the Rock Revival and Miss Me jeans had my attention the whole time I was waiting.) After about 30 more minutes, the assistant manager came and gave me my interview on the sales floor. We kept having to move around, because customers kept coming where we were. They apologized again for the long wait and said they would contact me between 48-72 hours to let me know if I got the job.

    I applied online – interviewed at The Buckle.

    Interview Details

    I applied online mid-January this year. A few hours later, I received an email asking that I call and schedule an appointment date for my interview. It was Sunday, so I waited until Monday at 2pm before giving them a call.

    When I called, one of the employees answered and I stated my name and my business. She asked me to hold while she got the manager. After about two minutes of background noise, the employee returns and tells me that the manager is busy. Red flag. I had her leave a message for the manager anyway, but i never received a call back.

    Fast-forward to this morning. I just received an email regarding the status of my application; it was a rejection letter. Mind you, I never received any communication from management or elsewhere, so that email was the icing on the cake.

    I applied online – interviewed at The Buckle.

    Interview Details

    Applied online and got a call the next morning asking to come interview. The interview was really laid back just standing up at the back of the store. I wore nice interview clothes but felt a little over dressed as every other employee was wearing jeans. His questions were normal asking about previous jobs and about school. He asked if I had any school projects that applied to this job. He seemed a little uneasy that I hadn't had previous retail experience. He said he'll call with an answer within a week so I'll update this post once I find out

    Interview Details

    The biggest thing is being friendly, fun, and fashionable! We love people with personality and a great sense of fashion! Please be yourself!

It's a great company to grow and improve not only through life but through sales and fashion and connecting with people. I love my team and my managers and I wouldn't trade them for the world.

    All Buckle interviews are conducted on the floor. So be prepared to stand and possibly move around if the floor is busy. Show up 10-15 minutes early. Smile and relax. They hire self assured, confident people who are eager to learn. Don't be cocky but just happy to be there at all.
