    Sales Representative Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Edison, NJ

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Express (Edison, NJ).

    Interview

    Group interview with about 5 other people. Easy enough for anyone with a high school degree, or is still in high school. The manager was nice & enthusiastic. Blunt personalities all around, just there to make money. Didn't seem to bother anyone the fact that most people complained about the job.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Express.

    Interview

    The application is completed online. I received a call from the hiring manager within a week to schedule an interview, went in for short interview (~15 mins), and was hired and scheduled for orientation within a week from the interview. The interview was simple, a few questions about any customer service or retail experience (I had no retail experience), schedule, hours I wanted, etc.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Express.

    Interview

    Asked in store if they were hiring, they told me to apply online. I applied online (simple application and a personality test), they had me come in for an interview. The assistant manager brought me into the stockroom and just ran through really basic, typical interview questions. She called me back a day or two later and offered the job.

    Co Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Fredericksburg, VA
    Declined Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Express (Fredericksburg, VA) in October 2016.

    Interview

    Listen to people on here.. you WILL NOT GET A MANAGEMENT JOB....
    The manager/ sales associate application is the same, when applying you cant choose what position..
    I applied on a Sunday got a call that Monday... Interview was set for later on the same week...interview was nice and easy but the manager kept talking about quality and sale, sale, sale. All of which was ok until he said, " I dont like to over pay, we like to see how you work. After 3 months we will sit down look at your performance and decide on a raise" He said the raise depends on the performance review. He said they were only hiring for part-time sales....and he pays (key word he said he ) $8.50 an hr.... now where I live most places pay $9.... and I have over 5 years exp....

    The manager then goes on to say.... he will call my references and then call me back... he acts as if its such an honor to work there...when it pays lower than most and is only part time....

    Anyway... he said they usually only give management jobs from within....

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Express (Columbus, OH) in October 2016.

    Interview

    We sat out in the hallway of the mall and spoke about why I wanted to get into retail from my past job experience, and about who I was as a person. I feel like the interview questions were appropriate, but there wasn't as much emphasis on career growth as I would have liked as someone with several years of managerial experience.

    It was a group interview, the manager asked us 6 questions. It took place in the back of the store, like the warehouse area. The manager was very friendly and welcoming and briefed us about the store. It didn't take very long either. He didn't ask to see our resume.
