    Assistant Store Manager Interview

    Anonymous Employee in San Francisco, CA
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Claire's Stores (San Francisco, CA) in October 2011.

    Interview

    Hiring Process:
    - If you have past management experience, then you'll be considered. If you are a good 3rd key holder, you might get a promotion

    Interview:
    Basic questions like -- "Describe a situation where you had a rude customer and how did you resolve that? or " Tell me a time where you went beyond to get the job done"

    Interview Questions

    • Depends on the interviewer. I got asked " Do you go to clubs a lot or go partying every weekends?" It's just funny but I totally get it.. She explained that because if ever I am scheduled to open on a saturday or sunday morning, (w/c they usually do for asst mngr positions), then I can't call in often or go to work w/ a hangover   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    No negotiation. Honestly, how that does even work on retail positions? If you got the job, that's the only time you know how much you're getting, so you can't really just quit if its too low or something.. right?

    Assistant Store Manager Interview

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    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.

    Reasons for Declining

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

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took a week. I interviewed at Claire's Stores (San Diego, CA) in November 2010.

    Interview

    As with all jobs, walk in and grab an application, fill it out and hand it directly to the Store Manager and make sure you leave an impression. Call back frequently asking if they looked over your application. When you're called in for an interview, make sure you dress nicely and wear lots of accessories because it is Claire's you're applying for. Be honest with all your answers and try not to be nervous.

    Interview Questions

    • All questions are rather easy and nothing too over the top. As stated above, be honest and real.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    There is no negotiation when it comes to pay, they tell you how it is, and you gladly accept or decline.

    Easy Interview

    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!
