Retail Sales Associate Interview

Neutral Experience
Easy Interview

Application

I applied in-person. The process took a week. I interviewed at American Girl (Columbus, OH) in April 2013.

Interview

I began applying for positions roughly three months before the store opened in my city. About two months before the store was slated to grand open I received a call from one of the newly hired managers and. My interview was scheduled during a job fair a week later. When I arrived I had to fill out a lengthy application in addition to having my resume in my hand. I interviewed with the manager that called and scheduled the interview and she hired me on the spot. I filled out and completely finished my new-hire paperwork the same day as well as scheduling my various trainings.

    The process took 4 days. I interviewed at American Girl (Orlando, FL) in January 2014.

    Interview

    Not a great experience at all! Received an initial interview on the phone earlier in the week and was told to come into an interview at the end of the week (Saturday) knew they were having a job fair and asked if i could come the first day but was told no. Finally Saturday arrived and i get to my interview, had to fill out another application and do the in person interview only to be told that they had already filled their positions and were no longer looking. Why was I given an interview later then other people when you had the intentions of filling the positions before even seeing me? The lady that interviewed me was very nice but the whole time I was sitting there, I was upset. Don't find that professional at all! Not a good experience at all.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at American Girl (Minneapolis, MN) in May 2014.

    Interview

    Took about 5 days from me applying online to getting a job offer! I loved that it was so quick. The interview and interviewer were very nice, questions were very easy ex. "How do you deal with difficult customers?" and "Tell me about a time when you excelled at customer service". The interview was maybe 10 minutes, and she offered me the job right after. I stayed for about an hour doing paperwork and touring. Great experience.
