    Sales Associate Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Calgary, AB (Canada)
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Calgary, AB (Canada)
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2 daysinterviewed at Value Village in August 2014.

    Interview Details

    I applied online and literally less than an hour after I submitted the application i received a call! (i thought they were desperate!) and i was interviewed the next day.
    I was interviewed by 2 ladies who were very nice but they did ask some pretty tricky questions. Questions i found trouble answering because this was my first interview and i didn't have any previous work experience. Many of their questions revolved around previous work experience but since i didn't have any i had to talk about my volunteer work (which came off as very irrelevant). I did get stumped and pause on a question (which is something you shouldn't do).

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at Value Village in May 2014.

    Interview Details

    2 weeks after I applied online, I got called to come in for an interview. It was a 1:1 interview with the assistant manager for a production team position. She asked me questions from a sheet and wrote down my answers as I spoke. We talked about my duties in previous positions. There were a lot of "Tell me about a time when __" and no "What would you do if __" questions. The interview lasted 20-30 minutes, and she booked me in for a second interview the day after. The second interview was with a different manager, and she explained that I would be interviewed for a cashier position because of my availability and customer service experience from volunteering (this would be my first paying job). The interview lasted 10-15 minutes, and she basically asked me the same type of questions as the first. I wasn't asked to provide references. I called in a week after to see if I was still being considered, and they said that they were still interviewing people and that they would let me know soon. It's been another week since then, so I don't think I'll be getting an offer.

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Toronto, ON (Canada)
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 5 daysinterviewed at Value Village in September 2013.

    Interview Details

    Applied online and told I scored exceptionally high on the employer survey. Called in for an interview. In person was one hour and another hour right after with the current front store manager.

    Interview Questions
    • I have been laid off quite a few times over a five year period. Manager asked why which is in direct violation of Canada's labour laws. You do not have to answer it. Best response is shortage of work. I think the guy just doesn't know that he shouldn't ask this question.   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    Salary was on the low end, 13.50-14.50. Offer is for a full-time job which is hard to find. I have cross experience in other industries so I am confident in working up.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at Value Village.

    Interview Details

    I applied for this job online and about a week later I got a call for an interview. It was my first interview and I think it went well. The interviewer didn't ask just random questions, they had a booklet with questions that they filled out with the answers that i gave, so it wasn't anything too hard. She then said that I would be called within the next week for a second interview. I got the call and met with another manager. She reviewed the questions that i previoulsy answered and asked a few more in detail. She then said that I sounded like a pretty good candidate and asked for at least 2 references. Since i never had a job before i had to give her references from my volunteering experience. The references i gave her are very reliable people who know me well. After about 2 weeks one of the managers called me back and said that they were having trouble reaching my references and that they left messages for them to call her back. I asked my references if they had received any calls but they both said that they had not. I'm not quite sure what happened with that. About a week later i was still looking for jobs online and the listing was back up for that store.
