    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Bob's Stores.

    Interview

    It was a group interview- you sat in a room with two managers and about 14 other kids applying for a similar job. If you spoke up and added your own comments to the questions, you stood out more so than those who didn't speak up and stood a better chance of getting the job.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Bob's Stores (Fairfield, CT) in February 2016.

    Interview

    Was called back two months after applying, the interview was with a group. Fairly easy, it was about 10 people in the group all looking for a job in Highschool. The hiring manager really looked to get to know us better and it helped to speak up first and ask questions about the company.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at Bob's Stores (Salem, NH).

    Interview

    Bobs likes to do group interviews. I was in a small room with five or so people. There were two managers who conducted the interview and they basically took turns asking us questions. Because there were so many of us they didn't ask all of us the questions just kinda took turns with who they would ask. Kinda of awkward people with other people but wasn't to bad

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Bob's Stores (Cranston, RI) in October 2015.

    Interview

    I applied online and got a phone call three days later to schedule an interview. The interview was a few days later and was hired on the spot and was asked to come in the following week for training. The interview focused on what I did in high school and where I wanted to go to college at that time. It was laid back.

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Bob's Stores.

    Interview

    Applied about three months before I got a call asking if I could come in that same day for an interview. I went in the next day instead and was hired after a brief interview. Started a few days later, was a very easy and fast process. I was originally interviewed by the same person I spoke to on the phone but the store manager came in as well and also asked some questions. I don't recall any of the questions being difficult, and I was a teenager at the time with typical teenager answers. I didn't prepare a whole lot.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Bob's Stores (Manchester, CT) in August 2015.

    Interview

    It was in a group and was fairly easy, it was a bit long though. I've never done a group interview before and was a bit scared. It was actually easier because I was able to piggy back after others made their comments as well as think of better things to say.

    Interview

    I walked in not knowing it would be a group interview with all of the possible candidates. It was awkward but the questions were easy. Was not very comfortable talking in front of the people who were also fighting for the same position as me. Manager was nice and made me feel welcome.

    Interview

    I walked in not expecting it to be a group interview with all of the other candidates who applied for the same job as me. They asked questions to the group as a whole and whoever spoke up first was the first to be considered for the job. The more outgoing and interested you seemed in the job, the more they liked you and considered you.

    Negotiation

    Make sure you are an outgoing person who makes friends easily. Making friends will come in handy for when you need help learning how to do something.
