    Application Details

    I applied online – interviewed at Journeys shoes.

    Interview Details

    I applied online. Got called for an interview several days later. Wasn't told what to wear, but as it's Journey's, I went with a semi-dressier casual. It was a group interview and was really easy. Everyone I interviewed with were really young kids and didn't have very strong answers. It was an easy interview to do well in.

    Interview Questions
    • None of the questions were hard. The one more directed towards the position and what we would be doing is: Do we satisfy the kid, or the parent? [I worked at Journey's Kidz, not the adult Journey's.]
      Other questions were like, "If you were a shoe, what brand/style/color would you be?"
