    Assistant Store Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Los Angeles, CA
    No Offer
    Negative Experience

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Lane Bryant (Los Angeles, CA) in July 2015.

    Interview

    Went in for the interview after about 20 minutes of discussing the position she told me that there was no Asst Manager Position only Sales. I felt very misled because there was an ad for a Management Position and I told that. She could tell that I was upset. The posting was very misleading and a waste of time. This was at Culver City,

    Assistant Store Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in New York, NY
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at Lane Bryant (New York, NY).

    Interview

    I applied for three store manager positions that were posted in my area. I was called a few days later by a store I didn't apply to and was told to call a fifth store to ask if she had any positions. Apparently there were no store manager positions available, despite at least three being posted on LinkedIn within the past week. I called the fifth store and was asked to come in an interview for an assistant manager position. The store manager told me the store couldn't pay me the wage I was asking but could get close - and would I be willing to accept at a slightly lower rate? I told her I would be willing to consider it if the offer came with a clear career pathing goal. The interview seemed to go well and by the end I was told my resume would be submitted to the DM. I was called later that afternoon and told my DM phone interview was scheduled for the following day. The DM and I got along well. The interview was very thorough and lasted over an hour. I was told I'd be contacted on Friday with an answer. Friday came and I got the call telling me that the DM loved me, but couldn't pay me what I was asking. Then silence. No offer - not even a lower offer. I said I was sorry to hear that, but that I enjoyed getting to know her and the DM, too. She said they enjoyed speaking to me and the DM was going to keep my resume on file for when a store manager position came up. When the conversation was over, I checked LinkedIn and found three more store manager positions posted that day.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Lane Bryant (Columbus, OH) in September 2015.

    Interview

    Had a phone interview first with the HR contact - pretty straight forward, mostly just covering your resume & skills. Next step was an in person interview at the Home Office with 3 of the current merchants & assistant merchants. Again, straight forward & no trick questions, typical interview questions. The interviewers seemed somewhat frantic as they were talking to me in between meetings but I guess that can be expected.

    Interview Questions

    • I was not ready to be asked how I felt about helping Plus Size women, as I am not one myself. The emotional pain some of these women are in is projected into their shopping experience and mood. I have been in retail for years and I think I dealt well with this question.   1 Answer

    Negotiation

    It was me telling them what I needed, and they met it. Hours are pretty easy to get regulated too as they employ many associates.
