    The store has good ambiance, with dim lighting and mellow music. I wasn't asked to sell aggressively, although I was supposed to encourage purchases.


    The pay was low. When I was hired, I was asked how much I expected to earn, and then paid that amount, although I later discovered that the other sales associates earned two dollars more an hour. At barely more than minimum wage, every dollar counts.

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Oxford, OH
    No Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview


    The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Smith & Hawken (Oxford, OH) in January 2009.


    Total waste of time, they hire just about everyone. If you can remember a time where you were proud of something that you did or a time where you convinced somone to do something than you will get the job. Easy as that.
