    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Brookstone (Raleigh, NC).

    Interview

    I went into the store to see if the location was hiring. Upon finding out that it was, I applied online, and after giving a couple of follow-up calls, I was called in for an interview. The manager was an excellent interviewer and asked in-depth and thoughtful questions about my retail and customer service experience. If you are considered for the position, you will have a secondary interview with another store manager from the region.

    I applied online. I interviewed at Brookstone in February 2017.

    Interview

    I applied online and was contacted within an hour for an interview. When the Human Resources lady called she only asked a few questions and really wasn't friendly at all. She said she would let everyone know either way the next day. I never heard so a few days later I followed up and their response "we're gonna pass" how unprofessional!!

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at Brookstone.

    Interview

    Interview was very basic. Basic questions asked by many employers. The stores I worked at always had a need for people so if you answered the questions fairly, you were most likely hired. They even hired those without any experience so you may have to answer questions using your own judgment.

    Second Assistant Manager Interview

    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Brookstone (Seattle, WA) in August 2016.

    Interview

    Very basic, 2 people interviewed me, asked me questions about my work experience, why I wanted to work with the company, and where I wanted to go. My answers were sufficient and my character is rather outgoing so I got hired. I wasn't very impressed by the depth of the questions, but I guess that is what you get when you don't have a job with depth.
