    Part Time Sales Associate Interview

    Application Details

    I applied in-person – interviewed at rue21 in November 2014.

    Interview Details

    The same day I field out an application, I met the manager, and set up an interview for the next Wednesday. During the interview, you show them how you would try to sell perfume. Other than that they ask you have you sold anything before. Just come with a great attitude ready to sell and you'll get the job. After my interview I was suppose to work Black Friday, but when I got there they said I was cut sadly. The next week I end up working on Wednesday and after that Monday. I am a part-time sales associate that wants to be full time, but it's ok. By the way they hire at age 16 and up.
