    Associate Buyer Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Stein Mart (Jacksonville, FL) in February 2016.

    Interview

    Steinmart starts off with 2 phone interviews followed up with an on site meeting with the merchandising team.

    In preparation for the interviews, I researched the company, the financials and other related materials to show the value I could bring to driving their categories. Steinmart's Vision and Mssion statements stands for respect and collaboration. As a Category Manager and Buyer for 2 respected retailers, I was excited to join Steinmart.

    Off the bat, the intimate apparel manager implied that I did not know what I was doing or had the business experience because I was coming from a different industry. Imagine a woman walking into an auto parts store being stared down with the look asking "what does a woman know about fixing cars?"

    In spite of me explaining how I have consistently turned around a number of under performing categories by taking a customer centric approach and using factual data to anticipate trends to bring differentiated, unique product to market; I was talking to a wall.

    On top of that, she displayed poor manners and did not seem interested in showing respect for others.

    I withdrew from the process. Why inject myself with egos or threatened people who are distracted from bringing out the best in others to build a healthy business that brings buyers together with sellers?

    Data Systems Interview

    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at Stein Mart (Jacksonville, FL) in August 2011.

    Interview

    There was a brief phone interview with two data systems managers. I didn't really want to work for a discount retailer due to some horror stories I heard. It was not a very technical interview as the two from SteinMart were managers and not very technically keen. I expected much, much more. I think they hired me because I seemed NOT to want the job!
