    Assistant Manager Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Seattle, WA
    Anonymous Employee in Seattle, WA
    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took a weekinterviewed at Pottery Barn in February 2015.

    Interview Details

    Phone interview first to qualify, then in person interview for 1 hour. Next, follow up after discussion with Divisional Merchandiser. Very professional interview....very informative. Good follow up on time and as expected. Only drawback was i had to wait in-store for interview appointment. Interviewer was about 15 minutes late- but this is to be expected with an in-store retailer interview if they are with customers.

    Interview Questions
    • how to handle difficult customer, employee, etc. mostly typical interview questions- but interviewer was excellent at 'pulling out' next question based upon my answers.   Answer Question
    Reasons for Declining

    Open Availability was not something i could provide at this time- otherwise i would have taken the job. looks like an excellent place to work.

    Declined Offer
