Store Manager Interview

Store Manager
Dallas, TX

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

Interview Details – There were 3 interviews total - one with the DM, one with HR and one with the RM. The DM interview was under an hour, the HR interview was via Skype and the RM interview was on the phone and took only 20 minutes. The HR representative felt the most personable and seemed the most interested in my responses.

Interview Question – "What questions do you have for me?" was the most unexpected question. The questions asked of you are very standard to a retail environment, but the most difficult to answer is what questions you have for the interviewer. Every interviewer asked this question and it is important to come ready with at least one.   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – On the application there is a spot for expected salary. I was given 98% of what was asked, which was fair for the volume of the store and the location in the metroplex.

Part-Time Sales Lead Interview

Part-Time Sales Lead

I applied online and the process took 5 days - interviewed at The Limited.

Interview Details – Applied online via the company website, which goes through a secondary website called PeopleAnswers. Uploaded my resume and had to take two questionnaires. The first was timed and was basic math problems (sequence, multiplication, etc) and vocabulary (analogies) and the second was 12 pages of statements that you had to rate yourself on with a scale. The day after I sent in my resume and completed the questionnaires, I received a call from the Store Manager and we set up a 1:1 interview for the next day. The interview lasted about an hour, was very laid back, and we mostly discussed my past retail experiences. At the end of the interview, the Store Manager said that she wanted to set up a meeting with the District Manager for the next day. The second interview lasted about 45 minutes and we discussed pretty much the same things as in the first interview. The next day, I received a phone call from the Store Manager and was offered the job.

Sales Associate Interview

Sales Associate
Willow Grove, PA

I applied online and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at The Limited in March 2013.

Interview Details – Walked in, asked if they were hiring, they were. Was told to apply online and the lady handed me a card. Applied. Got typical interview questions, nothing unexpected. They were actually only hiring for Floor Sets twice a week, overnight 8 hr shift. I told her I was still interested even though I'd never done a floor set before. Was told she would have the store manager look over my info and basically if they were interested I'd get a call. Never got the call.
