    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. I interviewed at Payless ShoeSource (Tallahassee, FL).

    Interview

    The interview was one-on one. It first started out with the interviewee asking me a series of regular interview questions. My interviewer was at the time, one of the managers at one of the Payless stores in the area. The next thing we did was a role play. With the role play, my interviewer grabbed a shoe from the shoe rack, placed it on a cart, and then told me to sell her the shoe, (as if i was a sales person). I first asked what was the shoe needed for (job, leisure), and then i asked was the shoe for her (the interviewer). Then i briefly stated that the shoe was a nice versatile color, (it was black), the sole on the inside was extremely comfortable if you are going to be standing for a long period of time, and i also stated that it was on sale, for (x amount of money).I am assuming i did an excellent job, because i was offered the position.
