Assistant General Manager Interview

Anonymous Employee in Kansas City, MO
Accepted Offer
Positive Experience
Easy Interview

Application

I applied in-person. I interviewed at Teavana (Kansas City, MO) in August 2016.

Interview

There were 2 interviews for this position. I interviewed with the store manager first, followed by the district manager a few days later. Both interviews were positive experiences. They began with more standard questions about work history, and moved into goals and other influences. The interviewers kept it low stress and low pressure which helped the interview run pretty smoothly.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at Teavana (Baltimore, MD) in April 2016.

    Interview

    The process was very thorough to start. There were three interviews in total. The first interview was all about learning more about the company. It was very informative and the benefits package for full time employees are excellent! Blue Cross Blue Shield with free tuition at Arizona State University. The second interview was very short and quick. More of a formality to get to know each other and what my interest is with joining the company. The third interview was with the overall director. Same as the second interview with a touch of the first..informative with plenty of exchange in knowledge and interests in joining the company.

    Interview

    When I first interviewed for Assistant General Manager, I had my AM and RM their. My AM did all the interviewing while the RM was on her phone or yawning the whole time. When I tried to tell my story, the RM would say I know I saw your resume. She was very cold and not willing to let me talk. The second time I did the interview it was just like the first time. I got the job with the promise of getting to General Manager after the first of the year. I didn't get it so I left.
