    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 days. I interviewed at Famous Footwear (Jackson, MS) in January 2012.

    Interview

    It was very easy because they were kind of needing someone in a hurry . I like that he asked standard questions. They did a good job opening me up and allowing me to speak.

    Assistant Sales Manager Interview

    Anonymous Employee in New York, NY
    Accepted Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Famous Footwear (New York, NY) in May 2017.

    Interview

    Applied online, got a call 2 days later. Had an interview set up for the following week. The interview went great and I was invited back for the second interview with the DM the next day in a different location. The DM mentioned that I would most likely be placed in that location. The interviews were fairly easy and mostly about how you would handle certain situations like theft. After the interview with the DM she said I would hear back the next day. I didn't get a call so I called the day after. They let me know they had to do reference calls. They called my current employer causing me to lose my job after I had asked for her not to be contacted. After almost 2 weeks with no updates (I would call every so often to check in) I stopped by the store. I did get an offer.

    Assistant Store Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in San Diego, CA
    Declined Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Famous Footwear (San Diego, CA) in December 2016.

    Interview

    Received call from store manager to come in for an interview. The interview was very relaxed and typical questions for retail management. Store Manager called me right after interview to set up next interview with DM. That interview was very typical, as well. Both interviewers were great. I was told by the DM that I would get a phone call within the next week to let me know of their decision. The store manager offered me the position, but unfortunately their pay is very out of range for what I was looking for. Their pay is actually worse than I have ever seen in retail management.

    The whole process took about a week and half from application to hire. The interview was very non formal and fun. Don't worry about it if you've interview before you'll be totally fine 😀.

    Also you don't have to be a shoe guru, you just have to be teachable and social 😉

    I applied in-person. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Famous Footwear (Algonquin, IL).

    Interview

    Very low key. Interview was done in the stock room/office with the store manager and one other manager.
    Started off the interview with the typical, tell me about yourself...there was a lot of laughing, especially when they asked me to sell them a pen. The whole interview lasted between 45-60 minutes. I left feeling very comfortable.

    They offered me a decent starting wage, just slightly higher than minimum wage at the time until the position I applied for was open. I countered with a higher wage die to my many years of management experience and ended up getting something inbetween.
