    Sales Associate/Cashier Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Inglewood, CA
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. I interviewed at 99 Cents Only (Inglewood, CA).

    Interview

    The interview process was very easy. It was more so a conversation. I brought in a copy of my resumè and at the time I had no work experience so we just discussed about my school work. The interview was no longer than 10 min. I was hired on the spot. I was given a orientation date and time and the orientation wasn't even a orientation we just filled out paper work and left. I actually had to harass the manager about when I was going to start. When they gave me my first day I literally was just told "we're busy right now so we need you to start right now. " Keep in mind this was my first day I had NO training NO previous experience I had no clue how to operate the cash register. Very unprofessional place. Also ON MY FIRST DAY I WAS SUPPOSED TO GET OFF AT 2:30 BUT I COULDNT LEAVE UNTIL 5:00 BECUASE THE WERE UNDERSTAFFED. So I end up quitting after 2 weeks because it is super unprofessional.

    Interview

    Received a phone call from a recruiter Anna set up an interview to meet with DM Felipe at a store location . Got their and Felipe introduced himself and tells me that he had to take a conference call and that someone else would be doing the interview. The other manager was not there so I had to wait 30 more minutes until he arrived . After he got settled in and updated he introduced himself and said he would be conducting the interview. I spent maybe 5 minutes talking to him and he said to me that the interview was over and that Anna would be giving me a call back. I waited a week to hear from Anna she never did call me back so I emailed her and got no response .
