    I worked at Mervyns full-time (more than 5 years)


    Pay was alright, certainly not enough if you worked overtime(pretty much required if you wanted to get your job done). Great people to work with.


    Never enough payroll hours to complete any job. Mostly you were expected to get the job done, but never supported in order to do it. If you offered suggestions for improvement, they were not listened to or appreciated.

    Negative Outlook
    No opinion of CEO

    Application Details

    I applied online – interviewed at Mervyns.

    Interview Details

    I applied two or three times over 6 months. By the time I got called for an interview, I had forgotten that I even applied there. Initial interview was a 30 minute phone screen, 2nd interview was with a training store manager in kenner, LA. Interview lasted about 45 minutes. Both interviews had all of the standard questions that you would expect from someone with prior management background.
