    Lead Sales Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate  in  Louisville, KY
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Louisville, KY
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Tilly's in March 2012.

    Interview Details

    I was hired for the store opening, so the interview was very brief since they were hiring an excessive number of employees. Training was a two-day process--8 hours each. This is not the case for associates hired after the opening. Now that the store is open, interviews are usually group interviews, the hiring process is 1-2 weeks (post-interview) and you get one 2-4 shift for training. After that, you learn as you go.

    Negotiation Details
    Since it is generally a first job, negotiation is rare.

    Application Details

    interviewed at Tilly's in May 2014.

    Interview Details

    I went in turned in my application and résumé to the manager. They called me 5 days later, told me the group interview was scheduled at 3PM on Friday, which was 2 days after the day they called me. He/she just asked you to introduce yourself, 3 things about you, why they should hire you, some basic customer service questions (depending on how many people who are in the group), then the manager had us go out to find / well an outfit including a story behind it of who'd by that outfit and etc. Hope this helped!

    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 1+ week - interviewed at Tilly's.

    Interview Details

    It was simple, I think the DM knew she wanted to hire me. They typically recruit, although I knew a few Mangers who were found through applications.

    Interview Questions
    • A lot of the questions were situations prompts." What would you do in this situation"   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    I was nervous because the DM became very defensive over what I was asking for. Other managers had a better time with this, but the typically have set pays to give you.
