    Assistant Store Manager Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Cleveland, OH
    Accepted Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Circle K (Cleveland, OH).

    Interview

    I asked my manager for 3 years, to be promoted to an assistant. After she was let go from the company, I talked to the Market Manager. He had our new manager train me for 3 months, and then interviewed me 1:1, where he promoted me to an assistant. He asked me questions about customer complaints, invoicing, paperwork, daily deposits, and being able to get to the bank on a daily basis.

    Interview

    I was part of a prior company Circle K took over, so this is a perspective from the other side.
    First the store manager checks over the application. If there is an opportunity available for the job seeker, they are called.
    They must pass a ~65 question test online, that is in-store only. This test is believed to disqualify applicants that they believe to pose possible problems. Honestly, the test is worthless.
    If the test comes back passed, then the background check is sent (as following any state laws).
    After all that, then the Market Manager is suppose to interview the applicant. This is sometimes done poorly. It should be done at the store the applicant is applying. Some Market Managers make the applicants go to different stores, with short notice.

    Interview Questions

    • This varies, depending on the interviewer. Some will ask a weird question like, "How organized is your closet." They are simply asking questions to catch you off guard, and to see if you are actually organized. I personally don't see how your home life is related to your work life.
      Most of the interviewers seem to stick with simple questions though: "Have you done this work before?", "Do you see yourself moving up?", "Do you go to school?".   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    I was part of a company they took over, so it was simply a "Want the job?".

    Interview

    have to go thru 2 interviews then wait up to 3 weeks for a background check. this is insane for a minimum wage job. was a rehire for a position that was badly needed but sales numbers are more important than employees.

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Circle K in August 2016.

    Interview

    It took weeks to hear from the store manager, even though she had my application from day 1. Went in to speak with her, to find out that I had to do a separate interview with a hiring manager. I waited another week for that. Then by the following week my background check came back and I went to training.

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 4 days. I interviewed at Circle K (Akron, OH) in February 2015.

    Interview

    I went to my interview and a pond arrival I was very professional and I was on time. So as we continue the interview I listen to the interviewer and only talked when they was finished or when I was ask a question you never want to over talk the interviewer. I made sure that I kept eye contact the whole time of the interview and I made sure also that I war light color cloths and that they was very professional. I gave a firm hand shake and gave a dependable resume to show that if I was hired that they could depend on me. Not only just for work but also to always show up on time to do the work.
