Assistant Manager Interview

Anonymous Employee
Accepted Offer
Negative Experience
Easy Interview

Application

I applied online. I interviewed at Bare Escentuals.

Interview

It was easy but they lied about what the job was really about. The job has nothing to do with cosmetics. They just want you to make the schedule, do payroll, open the store, close the store, and tell on other employees.

Interview Questions

  • They just wanted to know my years of working in cosmetics. They also asked illegal questions about my personal life.   1 Answer

    Interview

    There were two interviews. One consisted of an in-store interview with the Store Manager. I had to bring a model and conduct a makeup application on her to demonstrate my basic makeup application skills as well as selling skills. Once that was completed I immediately had an interview with the Store Manager in which I was asked basic questions such as why I want to work for the brand. I had to describe instances of where I've provided outstanding customer service and to describe a time where I had a challenge at work and overcame it.

    The second and final interview was with the District Manager and I was asked what traits and skills I believed a good manager possessed. I was again asked to tell of a time I was faced with a challenge at work and how I went about solving the problem.

    Interview Questions

    • How would you go about coaching an employee who always makes excuses and seems to not care about their job?   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    They didn't want to give me the pay I asked for an it took weeks of me insisting I would be a valuable asset to the company. I found this silly since I was making a higher wage at my previous employer.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Bare Escentuals in August 2010.

    Interview

    Got a phone call for an interview within 2 days of applying online.
    Met with the new store manager,( at that time-new store opening), the next day.
    She went over my resume and asked a few questions on how I would handle certain situations.
    Discussed availability- which you must be open 100%.

    • If a supervisor was not following the rules and was trying to get you to do the same what would you do?   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    Be very open and talkative. Dress like you work there (all black). They like you to be up to date in fashion. The DM does not like any piercings or visible tattoos. Natural colored hair only.
