Sales Associate Interview

Anonymous Employee in Salt Lake City, UT
Accepted Offer
Positive Experience
Easy Interview

Application

I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Skechers U.S.A. (Salt Lake City, UT) in June 2012.

Interview

The interview was laid back and rather casual. I met the manager at another store front and we had an interview in the break room. Simple questions such as: Where do you see yourself in 5 years? What would you do if a customer demanded a sale price that was no longer valid?

Interview Questions

  • Nothing really unexpected. They wanted to know if you are familiar with their product, especially the new ones.   Answer Question

Negotiation

They asked what was reasonable? I started high (this is entry level retail) I said 10 or 11 dollars an hour. He responded that was much too high and that the going rate was lower. So we landed on a fair rate of compensation.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Skechers U.S.A. (Milwaukee, WI) in June 2011.

    Interview

    First I was interviewed by the current store manager and my second interview was the District Manager. Some other associates had a group interview first, instead of a one on one like I did. The store wasn't open yet, it was still being built so we met in the mall near a coffee shop.

    Negotiation

    I was not even told my pay during the second interview, because I didn't know if I had the job yet. I found out during my 3rd working day.
