    Manager/Assistant Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate

    Application Details

    I applied online – interviewed at Things Remembered.

    Interview Details

    I was called randomly out of the blue by a Manager at a different location other than the one I applied for. I was asked could I come in for a interview the next day. Problem that I had was since I don't have a car I would have had to take four buses to get there which would be impossible since I am unemployed. The young lady said she would see what she could do on her end because that would be the only day the DM would be there. I never heard from her again. The next information I did get was a e-mail from the original person and store I applied for stating that they no longer are hiring for the position.

    The interviewer, Petra, was very friendly and informative. She seemed real knowledgable about the company and really seemed to enjoy her job. She asked alot of questions that pertained to the job and also chatted a little otherwise which made the whole interview easier to handle. I felt at ease talking to her.

    I applied online. The process took 1+ weekinterviewed at Things Remembered in July 2014.

    Interview Details

    Applied online. Took about a week for a call to set up an interview. The woman who interviewed me seemed really knowledgeable and nice. She said there was one other person who was interviewing for the same position. She interviewed me in the store; there was no place to sit so she conducted the interview as we were standing in the store. Most of the questions were about past work experience.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took a weekinterviewed at Things Remembered.

    Interview Details

    I filled out an online application and got a call about a week later for an interview. It was a standard interview with the manager asking me about my prior experience, what customer service means to me, and all of the basic interview questions. I got the job same day and if you don't receive the job on sight, then that means you might be out of luck. The next day it was confirmed I got the job and I had to fill out some forms online. They don't drug test, which I found strange, so you will not have to through that.

    Interview Questions
    • They will ask if you have experience selling additional products, which ties in with their business they sell engravings.   View Answer

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Things Remembered in April 2014.

    Interview Details

    Filled out the application online and received a call a few days later asking if I was still interested in the job and if I was available the following week to come in to the store for an interview. The interview process is done on a one on one, face to face basis with the store manager. It's a standard interview, asking you scenario questions and about your background. Fairly easy. Interview ended with store manager telling me he had other interviews to conduct and he would be getting back to people in a week or so.

    Update: I finally heard back from them by email 2 weeks after the interview and calling the store twice to speak with the person who interviewed me informing me I did not get the position

    Interview Questions
    • There really wasn't any difficult or unexpected questions. Just the standard stuff you'd here in any interview. Tell me about yourself and why I should consider hiring you, what background and experience do you have to bring, what would you do if you had an irate guest, tell me a time you went above and beyond to meet or exceed a customer.   Answer Question
