Very Easy Interview

Sales Associate Interview

Sales Associate
Folsom, CA

I applied in-person and the process took 1 week - interviewed at White House Black Market in March 2012.

Interview Details – I had a one on one interview which was a typical interview for a simple sales associate position at a retail store (they go through employees like crazy so don't stress too hard unless you want to make a career with the company)

Interview Question – Simple interview because its a simple starting point job. They want to know you can sell sell sell - no drama no issues - people skills - style - hard worker - relationship focus on the team for the store - you need to be a good "fit" for the other people you would work with.   View Answer

Negotiation Details – I didn't negotiate pay

Sales Associate Interview

Sales Associate
New York, NY

I applied online and the process took 3 weeks - interviewed at White House Black Market in February 2014.

Interview Details – The application is standard, nothing onerous. It took a couple of weeks to arrange an interview with the store manager once my application had been forwarded to the store. I shop at the store a lot so I made a point to ask to speak to the manager to follow up on my application. The manager was terrific and easy to talk to.

Interview Question – None. Lots of get to know you type questions, what have you been doing, why do you want to work here, etc   Answer Question

Part Time Sales Associate Interview

Part Time Sales Associate

I applied through other source and the process took 5 days - interviewed at White House Black Market.

Interview Details – I first heard about the interview when I got hired through a facebook group that I'm apart of that is for jobs & internships for students at my university. I emailed my resume to the email they had listed in their post and I was contacted a few days later about it with a date to come in for an interview. The interview didn't last very long but it was a lot of behavioral questions. I know that now you have to do a math test when you apply online.

Interview Question – Explain a time when you didn't reach a goal.   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – I didn't negotiate anything since it was my first "real" job offer so I have no real advice to give to anyone else. I didn't haggle salary since it didn't make a difference when I accepted the job.

I applied online and the process took 1 week - interviewed at White House Black Market in June 2013.

Interview Details – You MUST apply online 1st, end of story. List of available PT jobs found via my university. Eager to set up interview, slight air of desperation. Very quick and straightforward. No out of the box questions. Mostly interested in whether or not I dressed decently and had the time.

Negotiation Details – No opportunity for pay negotiations.
