    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at Stein Mart (Beachwood, OH) in May 2014.

    Interview

    It was brief and easy. I had one conversation with the manager and i was told "You start Tuesday.". I really don't know what else I can say about this experience. There isn't that much to talk about or write about. I hope this gives you enough words.

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Stein Mart in May 2015.

    Interview

    Store Manager called me to come in for a interview...once there she didn't ask me standard questions. Just looked at my resume and complimented it and asked, "Did you research the company?" I said yes I always research companies i apply to. Told her that I'm interested in working in the fashion industry and wanting to be a buyer or something to do with e-commerce or merchandising. She asked what area in the store i wanted to work and hired me on the spot. Probably one of the most simplest interviews Iv'e sat in.

    Service Associate Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Orlando, FL
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Stein Mart (Orlando, FL).

    Interview

    I filled out the application online and received a phone call for an interview a few days later. She didn't interview me at all. She just told me about the store, the positions they had available and what they did, and the hours they were looking for. She asked me which area interested me the most and what my availability was. It was kind of weird- she didn't ask me any sort of interview-esqe questions! I have no retail experience, so it was a bit of a surprise. I then filled out a form for a background check and she said that she would call me once the results came in. She called back a few days later and offered me the position in the area that expressed interest in.

    Interview Questions

    • No real questions, just about when I would like to work and which area I preferred.   Answer Question
