    Assistant Store Manager Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Destin, FL
    Accepted Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 6+ weeks. I interviewed at Stein Mart (Destin, FL).

    Interview

    I interviewed with the store manager who told me that she can not do the interview for the position in which I was applying and the district manager would have to interview me and informed me that he was out of the state interviewing someone else for the same position. The manager tried to get me to take a merchandise manager position instead of the assistant position for a significant pay decrease. Had to wait a month to talk to the DM who then had me wait another 2 weeks for my background check to come back. It was a very long process.
