    Part Time Merchandiser Interview

    Application Details

    The process took a weekinterviewed at American Greetings.

    Interview Details

    Initially, you go through a phone interview and then get an email from an area supervisor (AS) to go through the regular interview. Almost like they never even had the phone interview. Possibly depending on the AS, you meet in a store (e.g. Target) and all I had to go on was a name. The questions are of the usual variety, "why do you wanna work at AG?" "What do you understand about the job?" And so on.

    Its pretty relaxed and quick. Don't forget to bring a copy of your résumé! You get a decision then and there or in a couple of days.

    Interview Questions
    Negotiation Details
    Not much negotiation, you might win a quarter tops on your hourly pay. Standard is about 10 an hour, more with a degree (not that it's ever relevant).
