    Straight forward. Basic questions. Asked about previous experience, time management, communication, etc etc. Best to be open and honest, and don't hesitate to ask any questions yourself.

    Assistant Manager Interview

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at Halloween City in September 2015.

    Interview

    I had applied online a few days before. Then I received a call from the store I applied at but they asked if I could work at another location and we set that up. They were using the store cell phone, which turned out to be an old flip phone. The actual interview was casual and very short, not even 30 minutes long, it seemed had never given an interview before. She even said "they didn't even tell me I would be interviewing" so that should have clued me in to the lack of organization here. She was nice and easy going.

    Brief phone interview, asked if I'd be interested in General Manager position. Said yes, but couldn't select it on the website (frequent glitch in their system). Went in for an in person interview with the Market Manager. Market Manager didn't really deviate from the provided interview script. When I got the job and started interviewing people for associate positions I had prescribed questions to ask along with the answers you should expect to get.
