Part Time Book Seller Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate in Wyomissing, PA
No Offer
Negative Experience
Easy Interview

Application

I applied online. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Barnes & Noble (Wyomissing, PA) in March 2019.

Interview

I was called for an interview a day or so after applying. When I arrived, however it quickly became clear that the interviewer had never even looked at my application. I had asked for more than the minimum they were willing to pay and my availability was completely opposite what they were looking for. Very poor experience overall.

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Barnes & Noble (Redwood City, CA) in August 2018.

    Interview

    Interviewer asked questions and filled out a form. It definitely seemed like he was just going through the motions but I found it strange that he did not talk about books (only customer service questions) or ask what my favorite book was at all.

    The interview process was quick. I applied for a college Barnes and Noble and they simply asked about my experience in retail. They were hiring for temporary booksellers so they were sure to make that known. The manager was very inviting and thoroughly explained what the job would entail.
