    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at Zumiez (Poughkeepsie, NY) in February 2013.

    Interview

    I went into the store and spoke with the manager about a position. Then I applied online and had an interview with the store manager. Which was super easy, then I had to wait to interview with the district manager. The interview was in the food court of the mall and really laid back. In the end I was hired before my interview with the DM.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Zumiez.

    Interview

    First a 30 minute phone interview, followed by an onsite interview of approximately 2 hours. I felt really good about the phone interview and three individual/group onsite interviews, but probably fell short interviewing with the controller. Knew I was more than qualified for the position, but didn't sell myself well enough..They gave my references a very rigorous set of questions to answer and some of my references were a bit annoyed with some of the questioning. As a side note, they contacted EVERY reference I had listed.
