    Accepted Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Anna's Linens.

    Interview

    No standard interview process, depends on the store manager or whoever is actually doing interviews. Usually very short, random questions. There is no aptitude test or drug testing, if they like you they will hire you. Applications are pulled from a central pool online, so if you don't fill in your online application completely it probably won't be looked at. Usually if you have any sort of time restrictions stated on your app, it won't get looked at. Must be 18.

    Interview Questions

    • Are you available any time?   1 Answer

    Negotiation

    There is no negotiation, they will tell you how much they are willing to pay you and it's take it or leave it. You will be offered minimum wage for any and all positions if you are willing to take it.

    Sales Associate Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    No Offer
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Anna's Linens in October 2014.

    Interview

    Submitted an application online, and got a call for an interview. The interview was in a really small office. I did two interviews, one with the manager and another with the assistant manager. The interview with the manager was an easy, smooth interview, she asked a few questions and ask for a few examples. We spent a while just talking and having fun. The interview with the assistant manager was .a bit unprepared on her part. It wasn't as easy, fun going as the first, but it was still quick and easy. I was told, if the interview with the assistant manager goes well, they'll send for my background check, but never got a call back.

    Interview Questions

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Anna's Linens in September 2014.

    Interview

    Process was very fast. Applied for the job and heard from the Store Manager within a few days. I interviewed the next day with 2 managers.

    -The process was easy. They ask basic questions like:

    * Why do you want to work at Anna's?
    * Have you shopped at Anna's before?
    * How would you handle an employee that is off task?
    * Tell me a time where you had to overcome an angry customer.

    After about a 20 minute interview the managers told me that we were doing a role-playing exercise, which made me nervous. Luckily the night before I went online and found a customer service video they posted about how they greet their customers.

    We went to through the store, the managers explained the zones (1 and 2), who is where, the different sections, etc. We went to the front of the store and watched the sales associate up front greet the customers and the managers did the same. The greeting is long, but easy to get use too. Then both managers came to the door and I had to greet them like a customer.

    You have to say " Hi, welcome to Anna's Linens, here's our current ad and a shopping cart, we have ______ (current promo) on sale this week in the front of the store".

    Another major part of the Cashier/sales associate is announcements. This is suppose to be done every 15-30 minutes and you can promo whatever you want. I listened to a few from the managers and then I had to do 2. They want you to say something like "Welcome to Anna's Linens, be sure to check out our bed in a bags on sale this week for $29.99, we also have fleece blankets starting at $4.99" or whatever. This isn't the primary job of the managers, but we need to know how to do it.

    That was the interview. The role playing part was nerve wracking at first, but ended up being fun and I got to know the managers and relaxed toward the end. The whole process took right at an hour.

    Interview Questions

    • The role playing threw me off. If your up for a position there I would recommend you look up their greetings online to get it memorized first...   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    The manager asked my salary requirements, I told her and she said "great, works for me". No negotiation.
