    About a 20-30 min interview process. Questions are broad based and mostly centered around " tell me about a time when" or, "what would you do if" They make you feel very comfortable during the entire process.

    Interview Details

    RMA interview and Fit Interview with store are virtually same question types. Almost all revolves about situations and how you handled them. Always want to be specific and use a time you actually did it. Don't really want to be hypothetical unless you are backed up against the wall and really have nothing pertinent. Name a time you had to lead a team and what was the result. Name a time you had to approach the development of one of your associates. Try to answer them as an ASM and how you impacted the supervisor level vs associate level. Always use Situation, Action, Result format. Don't forget the Result!

    Interview Questions
    • Name a time you had to cater to a specific demographic like a student, military, retired. What resistance did you reach? What was the result of the interaction?   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    No real negotiation involved. The call comes generally from a DM and not many people would have the BA!!S to negotiate with them. It's almost a form of disrespect. Offer was fair I thought.
