    Interview

    Phone interview was very standard. One of my concerns was benefits and vacation time, because these items were reviewed poorly online. She was able to give me details right away (I believe she said 5 days of vacation for the first year, which is low for a full time position).

    The in-person interview was postponed twice, and at that point I decided it wasn't worth my time to pursue. I understand that things come up, but in my mind it's just an indication of how they treat their employees as well. Not all job searchers are desperate- we're trying to find a good fit. If we don't feel respected, we'll move on to other opportunities.

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Genesco in July 2016.

    Interview

    The Interview Process is somewhat casual and fairly quick yet still remains professional. A group interview is done in small amounts. The interviewer will ask several questions directed to a certain individual and other questions will simply be stated out loud for whomever to answer them.

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Genesco (Nashville, TN) in February 2015.

    Interview

    When I got there for my interview the front desk security guard gave me a badge and told me to go the the 6th floor. I went up and found it with the help of one of my friends that already worked there. It was very nice, everyone smiled and the interview process did not take long. Maybe 10 minutes and I got to pick my schedule and was hired on the spot.

    AREA SALES MANAGER Interview

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Genesco (Natick, MA) in February 2011.

    Interview

    The interview was very easy, sat down and spoke about my background before the District Sales Manager went into the details and benefits of the company. Everything seemed to be going well until I said the lowest I would go in salary would be 35, 000, seemed like the DM was hit by a brick. I thought that based on my experience, 35,000 was reasonable. Rather than telling me she couldn't do it, the DM seemed to feel my time was worthless, by stringing me on for two weeks (Having me take stupid assesments and what not), before saying the best she could do was 29,000...horrible....

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at Genesco (Harrisburg, PA) in September 2010.

    Interview

    I first walked in to the store and requested information on available jobs. The store manager was on duty and decided to give me a interview on the spot. He asked basic questions about my background and work history. After that was done he said he would forward my information to the hiring manager and they would call me. About 1 week went by and the hiring manager called me for a phone interview. All of the questions were pretty basic and she offered me the job.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Genesco (El Paso, TX) in January 2010.

    Interview

    First interview was okay. Very simple and short. Second interview was less than appealing. Questions were simple and more about my personal characteristics. Asked about my hobbies, likes, and dislikes. I believe they were looking for more retail experience. Overall interview process was average. I did not like that the interview took place in the open, rather than a more professional setting.

    Interview

    Promoted from within. My initial process came inside the mall and all of my promotions came with very little direct communication. I was in contact with my district manager directly roughly once every couple months. To be promoted for the position I was not interviewed actually.
