Sales Associate Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate in Newport Beach, CA

Neutral Experience
Easy Interview

Application

I applied online. I interviewed at Express (Newport Beach, CA) in June 2016.

Interview

I had a solo interview in the back room of the store with one of the managers. She was very friendly and welcoming. Most of the questions were about my past job experience. I haven't worked much but it still wasn't too hard to answer the questions. Overall I thought the interview went well. I was a little bit surprised that I didn't get an offer but I ended up getting offers from two other retail stores.

    Interview

    Walked into the store to shop. Was helped by a cool associate and asked her how she liked the job and she said she loved it, so I said it would be cool to work here. She told me to go introduce myself to the manager, so i did and she also put in a good word for me. The manager liked me and had me write down my name and number and told me to apply online and he would get mine the next day. I filled it out online and received a call the next day to schedule an interview for 2 days after. Arrived at the interview about 10 minutes before and was asked to wander around while the manager is busy. Called back into the managers office where he asked me 3 simple questions and then asked me availability. He hired me on the spot and scheduled orientation 3 days later.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Express (Aurora, IL) in March 2016.

    Interview

    Good thing is to start your story with something like "I know how important customers are...I've been in sales for a long time (even if you haven't)...I love the product you're selling...etc etc"

    The manager is very nice. She tells stories about career opportunities but gives vague answers on questions about wage, how many hours a week. And of course the manager describes it as the best job ever.

    Interview Questions

    • Q: why do you want to work here?
      Q: have you ever worked in sales before?
      Q: what's your availability?
