Tilly's Assistant Manager Interview Questions & Reviews
Getting an Interview
Assistant Manager Interview (Positive Experience; Average Interview)
I applied in-person and the process took 5 days - interviewed at Tilly's in July 2010.
Interview Details – I noticed that the store was hiring through the mall's online job listings.
I called the contact (which was the Store Manager) to verify that the listing was accurate. She said that is was and said that I should come in and apply.
I arrived at the store to drop off my resume and she gave me an application.
The culture in the store was vibrant and all of the sales associates were active on the sales floor and were eager to assist me. The store manager was very pleasant and came off as an experienced worker.
I filled-out the application and attached my resume. About 2-3 days later, I received a call for an interview. The interview with the Store Manager was great. She was very knowledgeable about the company and was clear about what she wanted from her ASM.
I got a call the next day for an interview with the District Manager which seemed like it would be much more difficult, but it wasn't. She made me feel comfortable and was also experienced in her field. She, too, made it clear that Tilly's has high expectations.
