    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 5 daysinterviewed at Hudson's Bay in October 2012.

    Interview

    A friend let me know of a job fair that the local Hudson's Bay was hosting to attract new seasonal employees for the Christmas season. I decided to check it out and that turned out to be my only interview. I filled out an application form and then waited and was interviewed by one of the sales managers.

    The interview was short. She looked over my resume, asked about any previous retail experience (I had a bit, which helped) and we just talked a little about my resume. The rest of the conversation consisted of her telling me the details and responsibilities of the job and saying she would be in contact.

    A few days later, I received a call with a job offer and accepted. It was a very easy interview and hiring process, although they offered me the job, told me they would be in contact, yet they made me wait for almost a month before they finally offered me a shift, something that I found very irritating.

    Interview Questions

    • Every question was pretty straightforward. The hypothetical situation questions can always be a little tricky, like one was something like "you are helping an irate customer with a service issue, how would you handle it?" I find that question to be difficult.   Answer Question
