    P/T Sales Associate Interview

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

    I applied in-person. The process took 6 weeksinterviewed at Winners.

    Interview Details

    I applied in person, filled out the application and dropped off resume. The process took almost 2 months.One of the store managers set up the interview for the next day. Interviewed at Winners- 40 minutes long.The interviewer told me she will check my original reference letter and will follow up with me next week. No one called me, so 2 weeks after the interview I gave a call, the interviewer didn't work that day, so I left a message with the CSR. After I have explained my situation, she told me they aren't hiring and hang up on me. Again, no call!After 2 weeks, I called again, because I was confused and I needed my original reference letter, the interviewer finally answered and told me "she was in the middle of smth and if I want I can come and get it" and that she'll give me a call later that day!No call! Went in person to take my original reference letter because I needed it to apply for another job.
    I didn't expect this attitude because the standard interview indicated a professional and smooth hiring. Very frustrated and disappointed.Wasted my time and energy.

    Do Not Remember Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Interview Details

    I got a call from a lady that I answered a job advertisement from Kijiji. When I got there, I found out she was looking to fill jobs for people from other companies and asked if I would be interested in working at Winners. When I said, "Yes", she called a person at Winners and set up an interview.

    Interview Questions
    • I don't remember much of the interview, but I do remember that it felt very relaxed and not like a "normal" interview (it actually felt too relaxed). Where I was used to having the importance of the company and the importance of customer service being of prime importance at the other retail place I worked before, here it was almost the total opposite.   View Answer

    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took a dayinterviewed at Winners.

    Interview Details

    Started off as regular merchandizing staff, so hiring process was pretty standard. A manager took me into the office and asked me questions like why I'd be a good fit in the store, why i chose to apply there, what my goals are within the company, if I had previous experience, etc. We also went over wages, expectations of staff, store hours, etc.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at Winners.

    Interview Details

    Three rounds of interviews. 5-6 hours total interviewing. 1st interview to last interview spanned nearly 2 months.

    1st round was with a 3rd party company in the United States. One hour in length on phone. Mainly behavioral types of questions. 2nd round was with HR in person. Asked almost identical questions to the 1st round. 3rd round was with various colleagues in the company including current allocation analyst, buyer, and reporting managers; two separate sets of interview on same day.

    I don't remember if it was at the 2nd or 3rd round, but there was also a Microsoft Excel test, a math test, and written case study.

    F/T Sales Associate Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

    I applied in-person. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Winners in March 2013.

    Interview Details

    I applied on-line as well as gave my resume in person at the store where a manager came to see me. I was told to call back the following week to set up an interview as they were looking to fill possibly two positions. I had an interview with another manager who was hiring for a f/t associate position. The other merchandise processing coordinator position that I was told they needed someone turned out they were not filling it after all. I was asked a series of standardized questions dealing with conflict resolution, communicating with a team, customer service, going above and beyond and something that needed improving in my past work setting. For each previous job experience was asked why I left. The interviewer told me they would be calling my references the next week and the following week would make a decision. I got a phone call the 2nd week saying that that the position was being filled internally now but she recommended me to their partner store Homesense who were looking to hire for an associates position which I thought was nice of the manager .
