    Sales Associate Interview

    Anonymous Employee
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at JoS. A. Bank.

    Interview

    IT was quick. They mainly wanted to know if I liked helping customers and what days I could work. Once that was made clear, I was asked to put together an outfit from the store's inventory. IF you get this far then make sure to add as much clothing and accessories as you can. It shows that you want to maximize your sell and show your customer everything available to them.

    Sales Assistant Interview

    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at JoS. A. Bank (Evanston, IL) in November 2016.

    Interview

    I got called within one or two days of filling out the online application for an interview. The scheduling for the interview was quick, in the afternoon the next day. The interview happened in the back, in the tailor shop and it was laid back.

    I was pretty much offered the job on the spot, but the district manager needed to be in the loop, so the official offer wasn't made until maybe three days later. All in all, though, the time between me completing the online, initial application and me having my first day on the job was about a week which was really nice!

    Interview Questions

    • *the interview was very typical, "what are you looking for in a job?... how many hours are you looking to work?... describe your prior experiences in retail..." etcetc   Answer Question
