    It was an easy interview. I mean it is retail, and some companies might act like they ask tough questions, but they definitely do not. It is such a joke.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Stein Mart (College Station, TX) in November 2015.

    Interview

    I did my application 2 weeks ago and got a call Wednesday for a interview on Thursday or Friday i pick Friday because i wanted a day to prepare. So today is Friday. When i got to the store it was pretty busy at the register so i was told to wait. Anyway after the guy finished we went to the back i didnt think he was the store manager and would be interviewing me but i was happy because he seem like a nice person. So he asked about my work history no behavior questions which i was thankful for they make me nervous lol. But the interview was great he just wanted to know about my customer service experience. I actually believe he could tell how passionate I am about customer service. But he gave me a job offer after the talk. I just have to wait on the background check now.

    Unprofessional. The senior mgr took phone calls during the interview and kept checking her phone. She also left the door open so employees kept popping in to ask questions. The assistant mgr came in and sat down and then the two of them started a conversation that didn't involve me.

    No room for negotiating. Manager said although salary was low company is a great place to work. I was on my last unemployment check so I needed to take the job at the time.

    Merchandise Manager Interview

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Stein Mart.

    Interview

    The manager showed up late from her lunch and I could tell she forgot about the Interview. She hadn't even looked at my resume and complained that she wanted someone with more experience even though I had a degree and plenty of retail experience. At the end she said she liked my personality but that she wanted someone with more experience. So why call and waste my time? Later she said she was going to do a back round check and get back to me, haven't heard from her since.
