Store Manager Interview

Application Details

I applied online. The process took a weekinterviewed 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 Questions
  • 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

    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.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at The Limited in July 2012.

    Interview Details

    Interview process was long, and disorganized. First had an in person interview, which went great, then had a phone interview which was alright. Then was told that I was going to have another interview on the phone, which kept getting pushed back and moved around. Then it got moved to a Skype interview, where the person who interviewed me ended up being 15 minutes late on the Skype call and only had about 13 minutes to talk before having to take another call. Overall, very disorganized and it took over a month to get just 3 interviews in, after all that time I didn't even get a courtesy phone call just an e-mail saying that they didn't have any positions currently that met my qualifications. VERY UNPROFESSIONAL
