    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Sterling Jewelers (Augusta, GA) in April 2016.

    Interview

    Not very long & broken up because they were busy. Seemed like a good place, just didnt plan for the interview very well. They asked me the usual questions about my background in sales

    Interview Questions

    • Nothing exceptional. Basic questions. Wanted to know background & if I had any experience in sales, especially jewelry. I had experience, so I think that was helpful & probably shortened the interview with not so much to explain   Answer Question

    I applied online. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at Sterling Jewelers in October 2015.

    Interview

    Pretty casual, they asked what you would bring to the team. The pre-interview test is what gets a lot of people disqualified. You need to be genuine and show your true personality, they are looking for a diverse team to be able to connect with all customers. Be honest and genuine, connecting with the manager and/or assistant manager is more important than you knowledge of jewelry/retail. Someone can be trained to sell but if you cannot connect and talk to new people it's hard to have a customer connect with you. Don't feel nervous because this does come with experience but be confident and "fake it till you make it" meaning even if you don't feel confident act like it. Look them in the eye, laugh at yourself, even if the answer may sound "dumb" or "cheesy" say it like you believe in it.

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Sterling Jewelers (Waterbury, CT) in June 2015.

    Interview

    Quite easy. Just have to convince that you have potential. Also a lot of discussion regarding your previous job. If you didn't have any job before it will be hard to answer any question they have. Make sure you dress properly and are comfortable.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Sterling Jewelers (Cincinnati, OH) in March 2015.

    Interview

    Three interviews with different levels of management. They all ask you the same questions over and over again, so be prepared to repeat yourself numerous times. Make the job your own and the job is sure to be yours. Even if you know nothing about the business, they are still willing to work with you.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Sterling Jewelers (Sandusky, OH) in January 2015.

    Interview

    First i applied online. Then that very same day i called multiple Sterling Stores that were within the same area to see which ones were actually hiring. Then I had an interview within the very next week. Then i had a second interview about a couple weeks after, if that. Then I finally got hired in 3 weeks after my second interview because they like to do all their new hires right after big events like right after Valentines Day.
