    Easy Interview

    Application

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

    Interview

    Filled out an online application, was called to come in for an interview two days later. Easy interview; the very friendly manager took me to the storeroom and asked questions about prior experience. Unfortunately, after making me an offer, the link they sent for a personality assessment didn't work. Rather than work with IT to resend it, they withdrew their offer.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 daysinterviewed at Things Remembered in May 2015.

    Interview

    The interview process was simple, straight to the point. It did get busy, and it was just the store manager at the time. While she was helping a customer she had me looking at products to "sell" her on something, it ended up getting busy and I ended up helping her sell something to a gentleman while she helped other customers!

    Negotiation

    There wasn't really negotiation.

    I applied in-person. The process took a weekinterviewed at Things Remembered (Tulsa, OK).

    Interview

    Typical retail interview. It was a very welcoming atmosphere. My manager was very kind and the questions were not difficult. We actually met on a bench in front of the store for the first interview. I also met with the assistant manager. They were both very professional. It was a pretty easy and up front deal.

    Application

    I applied in-person – interviewed at Things Remembered.

    Casual setting. Questions were very basic. Mostly want to make sure you won't bail. We discussed everything at the kiosk. No experience to engrave was necessary but they wanted to make sure would be willing to train to engrave.

    Sales Associate Interview

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online – interviewed at Things Remembered (Garden City, NY).

    Interview

    After possibly a month of not hearing from them, I was asked to come in and then told no one was working out for them; people would be hired and then quit within a week and so I was already suspicious. My interview went well, a 1 on 1 in the stock room with not the store manager and I was called the next day and told I'd be emailed a job offering. Now during my interview I noted how much I currently made and how much I was seeking. When I looked through the online agreement I had never been so offened with the insulting wage offered. When I tried to call and speak about it, I got so much rudeness with the person who had "signed" the email with "Hiring Manager" under her name claiming she wasn't the one to speak to. Apparently no one was the right person to speak to and I never got to ask why would a noncommission job offer me such a ridiculous number?

    Reasons for Declining

    The salary was a joke, way below what I had indicated I was looking for and had previously made. It was insulting.

    Interview

    Well since it was in the mall we had our interview in the food court/hallway. She asked about my availability if I've shopped there before and what did I buy. Was I comfortable selling things. And then she had me do a practice run of selling things

    Interview Questions

    Negotiation

    She basically said that she'll send me an email and I had to click I accept and then she sent another email for everything such as, W-2 form and store handbook and what did i need to bring for my first day on the job

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 dayinterviewed at Things Remembered (Tucson, AZ) in November 2014.

    Interview

    Very simple, easy, basic, and laid back. Started as a seasonal engraver and was hired thereafter. I received a phone call for an interview and set a date. Went in to interview and manager forgot I had an appointment, but was able to squeeze me in. I was then let out of the store where the interview took place. There was loud music going on in the background of the interview and it was somewhat distracting, but that didn't effect the process considering how laid back it was. It seemed they needed someone hired right away and was not picky on who it would be.
