    Sales Associate Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in McAllen, TX
    Declined Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    The process took a week. I interviewed at Babies "R" Us (McAllen, TX) in March 2017.

    Interview

    It started off as a group interview. We all learned each others names and played with some toys. We grabbed an item off the floor and tried to sell it to management. After group interview, they select two people to do one-on-one interview. After two days they offered me the job and all I had to clear was the background check. They told me to wait at least a week until it cleared but I decided to call three days after to check in. They claimed that they tried to contact me during those three days but I never received no calls, no voicemail, not even an email. They put me down as "declined" but they said they would try to fix it and that they would call me in two days. Two days passed and i never received that phone call. Next day I get an offer from another job and I take that in a heartbeat.

    Positive Experience

    Interview

    Very brief, simple questions regarding different scenarios at the work place. They ask asked why you wanted to work here? What are your strengths and what you can improve on. Not intense at all. What you would expect for a starting cashier position. They were very nice and felt very comfortable in the interview.

    Customer Service Representative Interview

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Babies "R" Us (Colorado Springs, CO).

    Interview

    After selecting an item in the store we were taken as a group to the interview room. There everyone was required to present and "sale" their chosen item to the group and interviewers. We were also required to invent a product using available materials and present it as well. Those who passed the group interview were then given a one-on-one interview with one of the interviewers and informed if they were hired or not. From there it was a swift process to onboarding and beginning work.

    Interview Questions

    • How would you sell your selected item? (randomly chosen by interviewee before interview)   Answer Question
