    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    The process took a week. I interviewed at JoS. A. Bank in September 2009.

    Interview

    Pretty superficial interviews, though all folks seemed nice and positive. Acknowledged the wide range of compensation available depending on which store you work at. Seemed like the major stores were OK $, but smaller stores would be a real struggle to get to a decent level.

    Assistant Store Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Englewood, NJ
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at JoS. A. Bank (Englewood, NJ) in December 2014.

    Interview

    First interviewed with a store manager who was frazzled and seemed unsure of what to ask while she interviewed me in a changing room. Then had me style some suits and told me her regional manager would call me. Weeks later a regional finally scheduled another interview in another location and it seemed to go well. She told me I would have to interview with her colleague who splits the territory with her. He took weeks to schedule again and it was another store location. He was 30 minutes late, seemed uninterested, asked me one question and then got up. Nobody ever called or returned my follow up messages to let me know the status of the opening. Completely unprofessional and lacking any structure.

    Visual Merchandiser Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Tuscaloosa, AL
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at JoS. A. Bank (Tuscaloosa, AL) in June 2014.

    Interview

    The interview process was a video interview. It was less than 5 minutes. A question would pop up on the screen, then you would have around a minute to record your video response. One of the questions I remember specifically was, “What are the steps to dressing a form?” In which I responded with something very generic: Take the form to the back of the store (out of customer sight), remove the existing clothes and hang them up, press the new clothes and put them on the form, take the form back out into the store. I don’t remember the other questions, but it was simple.
