Sales Associate Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate in New Haven, CT

Neutral Experience
Easy Interview

Application

I applied in-person. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at Family Dollar Stores (New Haven, CT) in September 2017.

Interview

I walked in to follow up on my application and the manager told me to come in the next day for an interview. He didn't really ask much he was mostly telling me about what I would be doing and how to handle suspicious customers when working a night shift. He said if he chose me I would receive a call before Friday the next week. A week has gone by and unfortunately he has moved on with other candidates.

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Family Dollar Stores (Carlisle, AR) in March 2015.

    Interview

    I was interviewed by a store manager from a different location, who was the mother in law of my store manager. My store manager had no prior interviewing or hiring experience so she sat in on the process but mainly just observed. It went ok although both seemed to be a bit rude and not very well versed with customer service skills and neither seemed very happy to be there that day.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took a week. I interviewed at Family Dollar Stores (New Orleans, LA) in August 2011.

    Interview

    The interview was for a position at the store nearest to my home but I was asked if i could work at a new location that just reopened that just so happen to be near my child's school. The interview was very brief and only basic questions and answers. The drug test was what took the longest to come back and some paper work took a while but I was hired with minor bumps.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Family Dollar Stores (Washington, DC) in January 2012.

    Interview

    Applied online and received a phone call from a store asking me if I could just work weekends and although I preffered to work more hours I said yes. The manager than told me that he was still reveiwing applications and just wanted to make sure that we were on the same page and hung up. A week later got a phone call from another store asking me to come in for an interview that afternoon. I came in asked one of the associates for the manager and she brought him to me. He than shook my hand and invited me into his office. He asked very few questions., in fact i asked most of the questions during the interview. THe manager than thanked me for my time and told me that I would have a second interview. Too bad i didnt read this site first. If i had i would have known that their Family Dollar does not do second interviews. I followed up three times and each time the manager told me he had not spoken to the manager who was supposed to do my secondin interview. However after the third I kinda figured he had no intention of hiring me. Which was fine. IM a hard worker, I love working in retail ( a rarity ) and intend to make a career out of it. So it was his loss not mine. Found a better job elsewhere making way more than minimum wage he was going to offer me.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at Family Dollar Stores (Savannah, GA).

    Interview

    Online application, several questions, most of them redundant. There are several parts to do with taxes and harassment. Several parts to do with payment methods. It took a long time to be processed and it was not worth my time. It was very unprofessional and they were all uncaring about my understanding of the work to be asked of me. I did not stay employed here longer than one day, the manager was not even supposed to hire the mass of people that were hired.

    Negotiation

    Very unprofessional and trivial. Process took way longer than it needed to.
