    I applied in-person. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Kitchen Collection in March 2015.

    Assistant Store Manager Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Sioux City, IA
    Accepted Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took a week. I interviewed at Kitchen Collection (Sioux City, IA) in November 2014.

    Interview

    A friend approached the store manager about what he was hiring for. Since she knew I had experience managing different stores, he told her to tell me to come in. I filled out an application and most of his questions weren't relevant to the job. Kept complaining how overwhelmed he was, briefly told me some aspects of the job, and hired me on the spot. Had me fill out all paperwork and said we just had to wait for the background check to come back.

    Interview Questions

    • If I could work days, nights, weekends, and holidays   1 Answer

    Negotiation

    I said I needed at least $11/hr and that's what I started at. I found out later that the store manager didn't even know what I was suppose to get per hour as an assistant manager. Little did he know, I was only suppose to get $10/hr, but since that's what he offered me, that's what they had to pay me.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Kitchen Collection (Monroe, OH) in February 2012.

    Interview

    It was as unstructured as you could get. In no way shape or form do I believe that the General Manager prepared to ask me any questions at all. It was easier than getting a pizza job in highschool.

    Interview

    Mostly questions that had nothing to do with the actual job description strange manager was more interested talking about herself who cares and most of the things she brought up were pretty personal and had nothing to do with Kitchen collection weird but I need a job . Asked me if I had any visible tattoos which I do not but found odd because she had one showing on her finger and leg ,she had on Bermuda shorts. She said they are not allowed in store if you work there. She just seemed very unprofessional to me

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Kitchen Collection (Park City, UT) in March 2011.

    Interview

    I was taken into the back of the store and sat on a folding metal chair in the stock room. The manager asked me a few totally irrelevant questions and then asked me to start the next day. I felt like I was just a pile of meat there to fill a spot at the register.
