    ECommerce Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Plymouth, MN
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Christopher & Banks (Plymouth, MN).

    Interview

    Phone interview with HR, then in person interview with 7 people (!?) at HQ. The in person interview was so thorough, I even received an HR package covering benefits and PTO. It felt like my first day. I thought the interviews went well, pretty standard questions, everyone was friendly. I really expected to get an offer if not a call back for a followup. I was shocked to get a "do not reply" email within a day or so saying that they went with someone else. That was almost 2 months ago and they still haven't filled the position. So weird. I was really bummed at first but it's probably for the better.

    Interview Questions

    • standard explanation of what they do, then discuss your background. very basic.   Answer Question

    I knew I was entering a different industry, and did not expect to be immediately at management salary. I stressed my sales expertise, my ability to offer color, fit and maintenance expertise. The manager appologized that she could pay only a basic wage. I started at $9.00 hr because of my past experience, and that was considerably more than others were paid.

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Christopher & Banks (Ames, IA) in September 2015.

    Interview

    Applied online and 3 days later received a call for face to face interview. Store manager was rude and pointed out that I had no experience applying for management... even though I was a store manager in my previous position and was demoting myself in pay/position for this job. She criticized my education... excuse me for having a bachelor's degree and can't find a flipping job in my field. If I was such a waste of YOUR time why the hell did YOU call me in for an interview in the first place?!?
