Easy Interview

Application

I applied online. I interviewed at Stein Mart.

Interview

The store manager asked me about my availability and when I could start, then proceeded to talk non-stop. This was the most uncomfortable interview I have ever experienced. I practically ran out of the store - I couldn't leave fast enough.

Interview Questions

  • This isn't a question, but the interviewer made some extremely inappropriate and offensive comments.   Answer Question

    Very easy. Walked in and asked if they needed part time help. They gave me an application to fill out, I did so and took it back in. The manager asked me some questions and I received an offer letter later that day.

    Application

    I applied in-person. I interviewed at Stein Mart.

    Interview

    They asked my availability, and when I can start. He basically just described his rules for the store and asked if I can come in on time and that's about it. It was the easiest interview I've ever had. He said okay you start tomorrow. I literally got the job right then and there and just walked in and he took me to the back immediately.

    Negotiation

    I said I'm looking for an $8 hour job and he said he'll start me at $9

    Application

    The process took 5 days. I interviewed at Stein Mart in July 2016.

    Interview

    Very easy and relaxed experience. Asked basic questions, not too much about the job. He made sure that I understood that ALL employees do ALL jobs. Meaning that you would be cleaning bathrooms as much as selling the store's credit card at the counter.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Stein Mart.

    Interview

    Quite simple actually. I found a job posting thru snagajob.com, the hiring manager at the store I applied called me and asked if I could come in for an interview, I went to scheduled appointment time for interview, asked maybe 6 questions while reviewing resume, and after I left I got a callback within a week or two.

    Interview Questions

    • Probably the most difficult questions I was asked, beside the basic interview questions, was what I could offer to Stein Mart that could separate me from the others.   1 Answer
