    I applied online. I interviewed at The Buckle (Saint Louis, MO) in April 2017.

    Interview

    Went in & I formed them of my interview the manager & manager in training both interviewed me. It seemed okay at first, however, they asked me questions that had no relation to the position I was applying for. After giving my answers they gave me that look like"is she done yet" did not seem interested in me at all or getting to know me. Told me that they had other interviews and I would know in 24hrs. I got an email an hour afterwards saying "they decided that I wasn't a fit for the position and decided to go elsewere, & thanked me for being a valued shopper". Interview took 5 min.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at The Buckle (Columbus, OH) in September 2016.

    Interview

    We sat in the food court which caught me off guard, but the District Manager is really nice. You have to be on your a-game with him though. He challenges you to see if you are confident in your person, and the interview is pretty much you selling yourself to him.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took a week. I interviewed at The Buckle (Carbondale, IL) in August 2016.

    Interview

    I went into the store to ask for an application. I was told it was online, but an employee let me put my information in an iPad and emailed the application to me. They put their name in as a referral. As soon as I completed the application, I received an email with the number the call to set up an interview. I went to the interview a few days later. We basically discussed my application. It didn't seem as though I was actually being seriously considered for the position. It felt like anyone got an interview, whether or not they were a good candidate. I was emailed a few days later to find out I didn't get the job.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at The Buckle.

    Interview

    Buckle pushes their employees to refer people to work there, so they were very receptive when I walked in on a slow day. They were enthusiastic (possibly because the one who refers you gets cash bonuses), and hooked me up with an interview the next day. I spoke with a district supervisor and store manager, and on my second interview they told me I had the job. Very informal, you talk in the store but the questions are pointed and engaging.

    Interview Questions

    • Why you want to work here, is it a company you could get behind, what do you know of the company, describe your "style," and a bunch of other questions that arose naturally.   1 Answer
