    Interview

    It was about 30 minutes tops. Basic question. All about selling the brand and labels. The jeans are great, not complaining. Always stay on trend. Nothing boring. Was also during store hours, it might be a group interview or one on one. IF ITS A GROUP INTERVIEW SIT IN THE MIDDLE! That way you draw in the attention

    Interview

    The interview process was very easy - especially if you're hired in internally. I was previously a sales associate before I got hired in and that was even simpler. Becoming an assistant manager, I went through 3 interviews:
    1st: District Manager
    2nd: Area Brand Manager
    3rd: Loss Prevention Manager

    My district manager helped me a lot with my questions and my interview with them was basically a prep for the ABM. Talking with the ABM, she asked basic questions (through the phone) like: what I believe the CEM (manager) role intakes, what my strengths and weaknesses were, goals I have set for the store, etc. She was so friendly and very easy to talk to. It made the interview feel like I was talking to my mother! Talking to the Loss Prevention manager was a breeze as well. If you are being hired internally, they will ask you about what you've learned over the past years or so with Loss Prevention from your managers and will ask about shrink, etc. If you're being hired in externally, I would assume it's basic theft questions. i.e. "how would you prevent internal/external theft?" "What are the causes?"

    Overall, you've got nothing to worry about. There may be curveball questions, but you can handle it. GOOD LUCK AND HAPPY INTERVIEWING!

    Interview Questions

    • There's not really any difficult questions if you take time to think! When I was talking to my District manager, she kept asking me questions in detail about the question she just asked. She wanted me to go more in depth with my answers and right there is the hardest thing to do when you're nervous during an interview. Just breathe and relax. Take time to think about your answer before you burst right into word vomit and you'll be okay!   Answer Question

    Interview

    I applied within the store the manager happened to be there and she took my application; by the time I made it to my car she called to set up an interview which was about a week later. The interview was a small group interview of 6 six people, it was very short and laid back. I heard back from them within a week with an offer.

    Interview Questions

    Negotiation

    This was actually the toughest part because pay is ALWAYS negotiable even if they tell you it's not, IT IS never take the first offer. It took about an hour to reach an agreement but finally we did.
