Store Manager Interview

Store Manager
North Little Rock, AR

I interviewed at Tractor Supply in November 2012.

Interview Details – Very detailed process, usually two or more interviews plus a recruiter interview. Several questions about background and previous experience. Several role playing questions asking how you would react in multiple scenarios. Questions regarding your knowledge of processes and reports associated with running a retail business.

Interview Question – Square footage of previous location. Just unusual.   Answer Question

Store Manager Interview

Store Manager

I applied online and the process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at Tractor Supply.

Interview Details – Several Store Manager positions were posted in the area. I applied for the two closest to my home. Was contacted by a Corporate recruiter before the holidays, and called him right back. I left him voice mails , as wells E mails. He got back to me two weeks later.
He told me that the two jobs I applied for were already filled, as those two stores were not built as yet.( ? ) He was not certain when they would be built. He asked me if I would be interested in a store that was being built about 100 miles from my home, that was scheduled to open in late 2014. I told him yes. He then told me he would send my resume to the DM for review. You get the picture. Tractor Supply is another of a long list of companies that post jobs that don't actually exist to get funding by the Government for creating jobs.
Two weeks later, I was contacted by a DM located 400 miles from my home for an interview 300 miles away with a few hours notice. I e mailed him back to tell him that I had secured other employment. Within two hours I received an e mail from the original recruiter that I was not suitable for their Company. (?). Obviously , when I informed them that I had other employment, they formally rejected me so they could submit my name to the government as a failed candidate so they could get paid.

Interview Question – Standard interview questions. Got the third degree on why i left my previous employer.   Answer Question

Interview Question – How much are you suppose to save on payroll weekly?   View Answer

Negotiation Details – It wasn't bad, they look at your experience and offer you a salary. It was a fair offer for someone who didn't work there before.

I applied online and interviewed at Tractor Supply.

Interview Details – Called from a recruiter. She was impressed. Set up a conversation with DM. Call went well. Met in person. Very unprofessional. Constant interruptions. DM set up interview with another DM. No call back for weeks. I had to continue to call for follow up. The recruiter went on vacation. The person she left to answer her calls never returned my call. The DM went on vacation. Said I slipped through the cracks. Very poor follow up all around. This was one of the most unprofessional experience in my working career.

Store Manager
Dalhart, TX

I applied online and the process took 1 week - interviewed at Tractor Supply in June 2013.

Interview Details – I applied through Linkedin after contacting the VP of HR. He put me in contact with the regional recruiter. This process only took about a week. I had a phone interview which lasted 30 minutes. I would hope the company had more energy than the recruiter. When I asked questions of the interviewer, he gave me quick nonsensical answers and laughed at one of my questions. I asked at the end if he felt I was a good fit for the position and he replied he was not allowed to give any feedback? I have interviewed for several companies and never have I had this answer.

Interview Question – There were no difficult questions. Nothing unexpected.   Answer Question
