    Floor Set Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took a dayinterviewed 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!

    Assistant Store Manager Interview

    Application Details

    I applied in-person. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at The Limited.

    Interview Details

    Overall I had a total of 3 interviews for the position of assistant store manager. The first interview was actually for a sales associate and it was a very laid back interview with the store manager where we basically chatted about experience and career goals. After our interview she informed me that she wanted to forward my information to another store that was looking for an assistant manager. I received a call from that stores manager after about a week to come in for another interview, which I did, and it was very similar to the 1st interview. Not many difficult questions, just the normal retail related questions that any interviewer might ask. This interview also went well and the store manager informed me that she wanted to take the process a step further and have me interview with the district manager. I had to wait about two weeks for this 3rd and final interview with the limited. This was the most intimidating interview, and the most thorough as far as questions go. It went well and the DM told me she would be in touch by the weekend. That came and went and I never received a call or email from the company. Not the most professional in my opinion.

    Store Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Dallas, TX
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Dallas, TX
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 1+ weekinterviewed 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 Questions
    • "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.

    Interview Details

    I applied online & was called within a few days of submission. The manager called me in for a group interview. I was interviewed alongside 1 other candidate. The manager asked us about our work history followed by questions. She gave us both the opportunity to answer the same questions. It was very relaxed and it felt more like a casual conversation with people I knew. I felt very comfortable.

    She said we would like to offer you a position as a sales associate & would be offering $8 an hour. I don't think that they really negotiate & if they do it isn't much more than the initial offer.
