    Stock Associate Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Hilton Head Island, SC
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at Cost Plus (Hilton Head Island, SC) in September 2016.

    Interview

    The manager is very nonjudgmental and easy to talk to. He has a prepared list of questions regarding previous job experience. It takes a while; once the questions are done, there are a few forms to fill out and some preparatory materials to read. Speak honestly and genuinely; the best and truest answers are the extemporaneous ones.

    Interview Questions

    • Some examples are, "Can you give an experience of a challenge you had to overcome? What was it, how did you deal with it? What are your strengths? Weaknesses? "   Answer Question

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at Cost Plus in September 2016.

    Interview

    The interview was actually pretty fast and basic, but it is for stock work. They ask you about yourself and job experience. They also showed me the stock room and gave me a basic explanation of how the job went and discussed the hours. I was interviewed by basically two people at the same time. I'm not exactly sure if they do all of their interviews that way.

    Stock Associate Interview

    Anonymous Employee in San Antonio, TX
    Accepted Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Cost Plus (San Antonio, TX) in April 2014.

    Interview

    Applied online and called within 2 weeks. The interview was interesting to say the least. The interview was one on one and lasted approximately 20 minutes. Very minimal eye contact, interview questions were not printed out and ready. Waited for them to find them, then they proceeded to read the questions. Instead of having an active listener, it seemed they were more intent on keeping their place with the list of questions and reading in advance. Yes, while I talked I could see their eyes reading. There was nothing else on that paper but questions, as I could see what was typed on it.
