    Part Time Assistant Manager Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Logan, UT
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Pacific Sunwear (Logan, UT) in May 2016.

    Interview

    I was first interviewed by the store manager, and then a week later I was interviewed by the district manager. It took a long time in between interviews for them to get back to me, so from start to finish, the process took a month. It was a very laid back interview though. I would recommend dressing more casual for both interviews (jeans and a nice shirt/blazer) because the manager and district manager aren't going to dress up for you. Dress like you'd fit in well at PacSun.

    Assistant Store Manager Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Seattle, WA
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 5 weeks. I interviewed at Pacific Sunwear (Seattle, WA) in January 2012.

    Interview

    Initially recruited from another retail store by my Store Manager. Had my 1st interview with the SM that took about 45 minutes. General and generic interview questionaire. I wore a business suit and was told to dress the brand for my second interview. I had more experience than the SM so the interview was easy for me. My second interview was held at another store in Bellevue which is the flagship store for the USA Pacsuns. The VP of Pacsun, Patty, lives in Bellevue. Anyway, I wore skinny jeans, a fashion top and heels to the 2nd interview and was complimented right away by the district manager. The interview took about one hour. General questions gauged to learn who I am, my business and management style and my goals and achivements.

    Note that there is a background and drug screen. Mine took 5 weeks because I had lived in another state and also had a felony 4 dui on my record that was 9 years old.

    Interview Questions

    Negotiation

    I had an offer and was actually surprised because most ASM at Pacsun only make an average of 17 per hour
