    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at 99 Cents Only (Houston, TX) in June 2014.

    Interview

    Phone interview,skype interview, then district manager interview. I was working with a recruiter who helped me along the way. It was a pretty smooth interview process. It took awhile to hear back about the background check and where and when to start, about 2 weeks. I was told there were logistical issues with training facility. Good experience over all though.

    Store Manager Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Houston, TX

    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5+ weeks. I interviewed at 99 Cents Only (Houston, TX) in January 2014.

    Interview

    I applied online and was contacted by a recruiter about three weeks later. Following this "vetting process" I was set up with the regional HR manager for a phone interview. He called me a couple minutes late and asked if he could call me back in 15 minutes because he was still at lunch. He called me and interviewed me while he was driving. That is the level of professionalism that I experienced during my entire tenure with this company. Following that I had an interview with the DM that was scheduled in my local store and I was called the day before the interview to be told he wasn't able to make it and asking me to drive 90 miles to the store he would be at. Following this I interviewed with the regional manager and the DM sat in. Following that I negotiated through the recruiter.

    Interview Questions

    • Nothing specific, this was the most unstructured interview that I have been part of. Also, after the interview, I learned that the DM flat out lied to me on several counts.   Answer Question

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at 99 Cents Only.

    Interview

    Was contacted by Decision Toolbox, their recruiting partner for the standard situational question phone screen. Was contacted a few days later to meet with DM. He was late, dress inappropriately and lacked DM level interviewing skills. Not impress. Follow up with recruiter was good until they failed to call or email status on next steps or decision. Seems to be their MO...you fall off the map without communication, are asked to complete a survey on the hiring process.

    Interview Questions

    • Nothing really pertained to the qualifications or responsibility of the job assignment. Felt like their looking for key carriers that can merchandise. No smart people.   Answer Question
