    Application

    I applied in-person. I interviewed at JoS. A. Bank.

    Interview

    After applying, I was called for a 1:1 interview with the Store Manager, which was conducted in the back room. I was hired on the spot. I can tell you after working for the company for almost 4 years that this was actually a little different according to JAB standards. Most interviews are conducted outside of the store, and will have a follow-up call if they are interested in hiring you.

    Interview Questions

    • I was asked to discuss a previous experience with a difficult customer, and to also say whether or not I felt that 'change' was a large part of the JAB culture.   1 Answer

    Interview

    Very laid back, ask a lot of questions. Very customer orientated. Wanting to provide world class service in every possible situation. The interview was in the back of the store which was pretty weird.

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at JoS. A. Bank (Haverford, PA) in June 2014.

    Interview

    I went in and asked if they were hiring. They said they were and gave me the manager's email. I was in within a couple days to interview. It seemed pretty certain the manager wanted to hire me at that point so the offer was a formality. All told, it took just over a week to get hired and start working

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took a week. I interviewed at JoS. A. Bank (Atlanta, GA) in September 2013.

    Interview

    Quick meeting with the regional sales manager followed by onsite meeting with the store manager. Briefly discussed the products sold by the company and the clientele. Discussion about the seasonal nature of sales and a misrepresentation of how commission worked. Not a flat commission, but draw vs commission; meaning that only if the commission percentage of sales exceeded hourly compensation for a pay period would commission be paid.

    Interview Questions

    • Basic questions about customer service and sales. Small discussion of priorities when selling.   1 Answer

    Negotiation

    Make sure draw vs. commission is explained, ask for weekly sales goals (vs. actual) and estimate commission pay from that.
