    Store Associate Interview

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at Savers (New York, NY) in January 2020.

    Interview

    I walk into the store looking for a manager and as soon as I find one she didnt really want to shake my hand. She told me she was busy and the walk around the store until shes ready to interview me. I'm waiting....and waiting. 10 minutes turn to 30. Then 30 turns into an hr. An hr of just standing around then a completely different manager says she was ready to interview me. She said she was in other interviews but I still dont understand how that interfered with my time because I made an appointment for a reason. When walking up to her office i got a really nasty look from one of the employees working there for no reason. Looked me up and down. During the interview, which took over am hr, she read off 3 pages of questions. They seemed endless. All of them repeated themselves atleast 4 times in different manners. She kept asking me to repeat over and over. Despite the rough start, this manager seemed nice. She said she really like the answers I gave and I signed an employment form and filled out my availability. She told me what days I'll be working after the second interview and guaranteed me the job. It's been 20 days since I had the interview and called them 3 times. Every responses is "the manager hasn't gotten around to scheduling the interviews yet. You are still a candidate" From my point of view management seems extremely disorganized. I very much dislike when employers guarantee a job then disappear when you ask about the offer they gave. I would like some transparency.

    Store Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate

    Negative Experience

    Interview

    Found the position on Indeed and applied. Received communication from a Savers' Representative (assuming HR as they did not identify their title) that they loved my work experience & wanted to schedule an interview for their store manager position. We discussed a time frame that worked for both of us and left it at that. On the day of the interview, 2!hours beforehand I receive an email stating they are no longer hiring for this position.

    Seems like I dodged a bullet if this is the way Savers conducts their business. Thank you Savers! :)

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Savers (Crystal Lake, IL) in September 2019.

    Interview

    I applied online, had a phone interview, had an in person interview with two managers, and then again with the market manager. At each they gave a good amount of detail about the job and kept making sure that this was a career choice for me. As someone who hasn't interviewed a lot they really made me feel at ease with the whole process.

    Interview

    Casual, nothing to worry about. They don't care about you as they basically hire anyone. they just need need people they can overwork. Its about the quantity not quality. And they promote people who are literally not deserving of it

    Many of the interview questions revolve around specific instances that you 'went above and beyond' or how you dealt with a difficult situation. Though what they mainly focused on was how you hold yourself and others accountable.

    I applied online. I interviewed at Savers.

    Interview

    Fairly simple interview. It felt like the question are just picked from a list. Spoke to a total of three individuals. None of them asked many follow up questions. The questions are basic nothing that I would consider a curve ball.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 6 weeks. I interviewed at Savers (Providence, RI).

    Interview

    long period between interviews-- 3 phone screens and then an in person interview and despite having a lot of interest and seemingly great interviews I never heard back from them either way. It was odd to not hear back as I thought every interview was handled well and was very professional.
