Easy Interview

I applied online. I interviewed at Garage.

Interview

This interview process was different. We were not notified until we got there that it would be a group interview with 2 others (so three total). But it was very laid back and easy.

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took a week. I interviewed at Garage (Spring, TX) in August 2016.

    Interview

    Filled and submitted application, few days later they called me to schedule interview. Went on interview, manager took me outside of the store on a bench, since it's pretty loud in. Not up tight conversation at all, felt like i was talking to a friend. For them everything is really about exceptional customer service, so point that a lot while talking. They are looking for someone who has fun personality, (can't be shy), who is outgoing, doesn't have a problem approaching people etc.. 3 days later manager called me to make an offer for sales associate and asked me when can i come to finish the paperwork.

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took a week. I interviewed at Garage (Austin, TX) in November 2015.

    Interview

    I was accepted by the manager through a referral. It was completely through the phone. I was at college out of state and I had applied through a friend because i needed a job when i came home. I just took the survey and the background check and as soon as I got home I went in to fill out my final paper work. After a week i started my first day.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Garage in October 2015.

    Interview

    My interview was super laid back, I felt like I was talking to one of my friends. Lucky for me I knew majority of the managers because my best friend worked there.

    The interview itself was held at a little sitting area down the hall from the store and we barely talked about work related things. However when one of the managers did ask me questions (from a sheet of paper) she would write down everything I said word for word.

    The questions were basic retail questions.

    My advice for if you want to be a regular employee apply right before they do seasonal hiring that's what I did and my manager also said that's when they hire most regular employees.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took a week. I interviewed at Garage in August 2015.

    Interview

    I applied in person, and a day later was called for a phone interview. I was told that since I applied in person, there was no need for me to come back to the store. The interview was very brief (under 10 mins.)

    I was asked "Why do you want to work at Garage?", "How would you describe your style?", "Are you an outgoing person?" After answering, I was told a basic description of the job, that I'd be stocking, working the register, etc.

    If you do well on the interview, they'll refer you to a background check before deciding whether or not to hire you.

    Tip: Try not to come off as too shy or nervous during your interview. They're much less likely to hire you if you're not a "generally outgoing person", as the job involves a lot of talking to customers.

    Interview will be outside of the store. Mines wasn't a group interview which is great. Make sure you talk more about yourself than anything else and don't be shy ! They want outgoing people with energy.
