    Sales Associate Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Scarsdale, NY
    Accepted Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Pookie and Sebastian (Scarsdale, NY).

    Interview

    So it was a "working interview". AKA they have you work for 3 hours (unpaid obviously) to see how you do in the store. I was one of the lucky few to be hired. During my time working there so many people were given "working interviews" and never got a call back. The store wants free labor. It is completely screwed up especially to these young college-age girls trying to make some extra money. One girl did a "working interview" 3 times and never got hired.

    • The only question was about my past experience. It was all about that free labor!   Answer Question

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Pookie and Sebastian (New York, NY).

    Interview

    They make you do a working interview without payment. After working there I realized they used thee working interviews that were hours long, as a way to have an employee on the floor with out having to use payroll. The owner sits down with you and talks about how great his company is. The whole thing was a joke.
