    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took a weekinterviewed at Brown Shoe in October 2014.

    Interview Details

    Applied online, contacted at a later date. Was called on a Thursday and had an interview on Sunday morning, it was also a group interview. They had a panel where each of the three assistant managers asked one and the other questions coming from the manager. Straight forward questions. There was to be a one on one interview to follow, but I believe I was overly qualified and didn't receive a follow up.

    Interview Questions
    • Typical questions:
      What does success mean to you?
      Why do people steal? And what would you do if you saw someone trying to steal?
