Easy Interview

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.

Interview Questions

Negotiation

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

    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.

    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

    Interview

    I applied online and received a call about a week and a half later. I called them back and they said they wanted to set up a time for an interview. When the time came, I went in and I told the cashier up front that I was here for an interview. They called the manager up the front and we went and sat outside on a bench. She mainly told me about the company and what is expected of employees. I got an email 3 days after the interview offering me the job.

    Interview

    After completing the interview process online for a new store in my area I received call to come into the store for an interview. The person who was interviewing me arrived a few minutes late which was aggravating since because the store was not open I was waiting outside. The interview itself was informal, especially since it was conducted on folding chairs in a building that was still under construction. After what I would rate a as a distinctly neutral interview I was told I would receive a call back within several days. I called a week later and was told to call back again several days later which I did and was again told to call back several days later. At that point I moved on.
