Assistant Manager Interview

Assistant Manager

I applied in-person and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Zumiez.

Interview Details – Walked in store, spoke with one employee, told me to fill out an application online and set up an interview for me with the store manager the following week. Hired on the spot. However, the following paperwork online took hours! Everything should go back to being on old fashioned paper.

Assistant Manager Interview

Assistant Manager

I applied online and the process took a day - interviewed at Zumiez in July 2009.

Interview Details – 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 Question – Would i be comfortable selling ladies swimwear.   View Answer

Negotiation Details – 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.
