    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took a week. I interviewed at Garden Ridge in August 2013.

    Interview

    My interview involved me and one other girl. The interviewer basically explained what we would be doing if we got the job. We were not asked questions other than how open our schedules were and how much experience we had prior. In the end we were asked if we had any questions but the interviewer had explained the job very well. It was a simple and quick interview overall.

    Co-Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Plano, TX

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Garden Ridge (Plano, TX) in May 2012.

    Interview

    I was called by the district manager to meet the a the store manager at a Plano store. He was stocking merchandise at the time. We went to his office, and he wanted to know why I was leaving my current job. I told him I want a challenge, and he seemed thrilled to hear this bc apparently garden ridge is all about challenges. I could tell that the store was not well staffed and horribly faced. Management doesn't know their sales on a daily basis and customer service is not a priority to them. There is no training program in place. You just get thrown into the job, and you sink or swim. There is a huge lack of organization, and I really don't see the company being around much longer. I was told I was a good fit and should expect a call from the district manager about salary requirements...that was 3 weeks ago lol.
