Sales Associate Interview

Sales Associate
Las Vegas, NV

I applied in-person and the process took 4 days - interviewed at Tilly's in May 2014.

Interview Details – They do group interviews mostly and pick someone who's well dressed and most convincing with their sales pitch, no need to be nervous it's really easy to get a job there. They typically do two interviews both in groups one with an assistant manager and the other with the store manage.

Interview Question – They will ask about internal and external shrink and loss prevention so know those two, also if you get asked "which would you steal a pack of gum tshirt" don't say a pack of gum (it's neither)   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – There's not much room for negotiation with hours or pay my best advice would to be work hard sell hard and try to move up as fast as you can

I 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!
