Sales Associate Interview

Sales Associate

I applied online and the process took 4 days - interviewed at The Limited in April 2014.

Interview Details – Applied and scheduled for an interview within 3 days. Interview consisted of "Tell me a time" and "How would you questions" nothing specific until it came to having retail experience and being in a clothing store. Selling credit is a make or break question I believe.

Interview Question – Pick out an outfit for (insert event here) and come back when you're done. You have to go around the store and pick an appropriate outfit and pray that the manager likes it.   Answer Question

Very Easy Interview

Floor Set Interview

Floor Set

I applied online and the process took a day - interviewed at The Limited in September 2013.

Interview Details – I'm not sure if every interview went this way, but it was an early morning interview with one other girl and not many questions. Maybe it was because it was for floorset and not selling, but they basically wanted to just see that I would be on time, look presentable, and was a happy person. I didn't have to say much before the former manager said "Wll I like you two, when do you want to start?"

I didn't have a job at the time so I had a lot of hours to give. She asked if I wanted more hours than just the floorset. I told her I'd do what was needed and she offered freight. I accepted and that was that! On the first interview, she already took us around the back room and explained how things we done before we were even hired!

Interview Question – Honestly, I can't even think of an actual question that she asked me besides "Why The Limited?"   View Answer

Difficult Interview

Store Manager Interview

Store Manager

I applied online and the process took 1 week - interviewed at The Limited.

Interview Details – After responding in email form, the District Manager contacted me to set up a phone interview. The phone interview lasted approximately 30 minutes, after which she set up a time for a face to face interview. I arrived at the store on time for the interview, but the district manager was not there and the store employees working had NO idea she was coming or that she was going to do an interview. After an awkward 15 minutes of waiting, the District Manager called the store and asked for me- she requested that I meet her in the cafe in the mall. During the interview, it became obvious that this tactic was a ploy for me to get a look at the store and its opportunities, which were numerous. The interview continued for another 2 1/2 hours, the longest face to face interview I have ever had, which included a 'secret shop' of a store of my previous employer. She also bought me lunch at a sandwich place and we continued the interview. I think we covered every possible aspect of life. I have done many interviews in my time but I have never spend that much time with an applicant. It made me wonder what else she hoped to accomplish that day.

Interview Question – I previously worked for Aeropostale, so she had me go into the Aeropostale in that mall ( which was part of my old district) and had me critique their customer service, visuals, standards etc. It was potentially very awkward, but fortunately I did not know anyone working in the store that day.   Answer Question
