Application

I applied online – interviewed at Zumiez.

Interview

The interview was with the store manager and district manager. It was in the food court of the mall I was applying at. The store manager asked most of the questions and the district manager observed. It was very casual and easy going.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 dayinterviewed at Zumiez in July 2009.

    Interview

    I met with the regional manager in the mall where Zumiez was opening a new store. We spoke for about an hour and really hit it off. I was hired on the spot. In a way I gave her a bit of an education because I had significantly more experience with the products I would be selling and a better feel for the demographics of their new location.

    Interview Questions

    • Would i be comfortable selling ladies swimwear.   1 Answer

    Negotiation

    I was offered $10 per hour and was able to bump it up to $11. They try to entice you with their whole commission structure which turns out to be peanuts once you start working and realize what it takes to make any money there.
