Assistant Store Manager Interview

Anonymous Employee in Columbus, OH

Positive Experience
Easy Interview

Application

I applied online. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Claire's Stores (Columbus, OH) in October 2016.

Interview

The interview was super simple each time I've interviewed. I met with the store manager, we sat down and she just asked me questions about my work history. Super laid back and simple. The first time I worked for Claire's I met with the DM as well, the second time I was just hired on.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Claire's Stores (Anderson, SC) in July 2016.

    Interview

    Totally unprofessional. Store manager scheduled a PHONE interview through email, called me a few minutes after the scheduled time and asked me where I am. Made me rush out there for an in person interview instead of a phone interview. When I got there she had no clue what position I had even applied for and could not find my application or resume. Ended up offering me a part time, minimum wage sales associate job. Even though I applied for a management position and I haven't been anything less than a manager in 2 years -_-

    Interview

    Super easy. My boss (the store manager) was super cool & we ended up becoming lifelong friends! I did an in person interview with her than a phone interview with the DSM. That was easy as well & lasted maybe 5 minutes. That was on a Friday & I was offered the job on Monday!

    Interview asking what customer service means to me. Pretty straight forward. Manager seemed nice at first. But some days are better than others. I wish they had been more honest with how much staffing we DON'T have.

    I applied online. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at Claire's Stores (Olympia, WA) in March 2013.

    Interview

    Applied online through monster and had an interview the next week. Met with the district manager and assistant manager. When arriving had to wait over twenty minutes in the store while the district manager came back to lunch. At the interview the district manager had the assistant store conduct the interview through a packet which she stumbled through. After reviewing my resume the district manager offered me an assistant manager position for a store over 40 miles away...stating that I was unqualifed to be a store manager and that with hard work and customer service I could work my way up to store manager in a year or so.

    40 miles away and was for a position lower than what I wanted.
