    Manager In Training Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Columbus, OH
    Declined Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took a week. I interviewed at The Buckle (Columbus, OH).

    Interview

    It was very direct, asked basic interview questions, however they were very casual and informal. They seemed to focus more on being able to make sales and work on commission rather than be able to focus on the customer and be able to understand and work with them.

    FREIGHT COORDINATOR Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Manhattan, KS
    No Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at The Buckle (Manhattan, KS) in March 2017.

    Interview

    Interviewer was late. Interview took place on the sales floor. Since the job was recommended by an associate she listened in on the interview. The interview questions were mostly about my life/ job experience. Towards the end of the interview she told me the position I applied for had been filled and asked if I wanted to work as a sales associate. This is kind of were I biffed it. She caught me off guard and I didn't really have time to retool my answers and ended up coming off as clueless towards the end.

    Interview

    Applied online. Received an email saying to call to schedule interview. When I arrived for the interview, they questioned if I had to correct date. (Seems they are disorganized) She began to ask me to wait and look around while she head to the back. Afterwards, we interviewed in the back (standing). Finally she informed me I would receive an answer within 24 hours. I didn't get the job, although I thought I did fantastic job...

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at The Buckle (Orland Park, IL) in January 2017.

    Interview

    I arrived a 1/2 hr early, the person who was to be interviewed before me didn't show so she interviewed me early. She said THEY weren't looking for a visual person, even though that is what was advertised and what I applied for. She said another store may be looking for a visual merchandiser. She gave me options for other stores and said she'd get back to me the beginning of February.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at The Buckle (Sacramento, CA) in January 2017.

    Interview

    The interview took place on the sales floor around other employees and customers with loud music playing right across from us! It was extremely distracting and quite irritating. Would have never thought that would happen....................

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at The Buckle (Bakersfield, CA) in January 2017.

    Interview

    It was a basic interview. The questions were neither too difficult nor too simple. It was definitely a more loosely conducted interview as it was done on the sales floor. The questions were your basic interview questions. Overall, business casual or dress with items from the store.

    Assistant Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Columbia, MO
    Declined Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at The Buckle (Columbia, MO) in January 2017.

    Interview

    The process was easy. Just asked common questions about work history and of course they why do you want to work at buckle. I passed the interview process and was offered a position. At the time I lived two hours away and they worked with me on start date. This is where it becomes a complete joke. I was never going for assistant manager but was a sales floor person. The offer pay was hilarious... $7. I rejected that after HR emailed me 5 times.. I asked for $15 and they said I could reach that by selling their outrageously priced clothes with their 3% commission scale. STAY AWAY!
