    Assistant Store Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Maryville, TN
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Maryville, TN
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Goody's Family Clothing in July 2014.

    Interview Details

    I interviewed with the store manager and then with the district manager. The district manager was quite inattentive during most of the interview by repeatedly looking at his phone. So much so that I was surprised when I received an email offer one week later. The next day, I accepted the offer (as instructed, per the email to call the store manager); but had a couple of questions. I also spoke with the store manager the day after I accepted the offer, then two days later I found out they'd hired someone else the day after I'd accepted. The store manager proceeded to explain to me that the district manager really wanted me as a store manager instead of an assistant, but had no current openings.

    Interview Questions
    • The store manager interview was great. The district manager was somewhat arrogant, but nothing was difficult or unexpected.   Answer Question

Goody's sticks to smaller towns where budget-minded shoppers may be hungry for popular brand names. It sells Dockers, Levi's, NIKE, Reebok, and Skechers, as well as its own labels (Ashley Judd line), which account for about a third of sales. Founded as Athens Outlet Stores in 1953, Goody's... More
