    Corporate Recruiter Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Twinsburg, OH
    No Offer
    Negative Experience

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 days. I interviewed at Things Remembered (Twinsburg, OH).

    Interview

    Extensive phone interview, face to face with several people in the department. Everything was great until I met with the VP of Human Resources. It was one of the worst experiences I've ever had. I'm not entirely sure how she works in HR. There is nothing personable or comforting about her. She was very rude and kept asking irrelevant questions. I am glad I did not pursue this position. I did notice the position opening up several times after it was filled and I am going to assume it was because of her.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Things Remembered.

    Interview

    Applied online and took about a few weeks for them to reach out, once they did we set up a date to do an in-person interview. The interview is with the store manager, the MIT, and the Assistant manager depending on who they have on staff. The interview takes place inside of the mall and the questions were very tough and situational mainly "tell me about a time when..." the questions are predetermined on a sheet and the interviewer will write down your responses to share with their district manager. You will be able to tell if you did a good job because they will talk to you more about the specifics with the job and let you know that their district manager will be calling for an over the phone interview.

    Assistant Manager Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Winston-Salem, NC

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Things Remembered (Winston-Salem, NC) in June 2014.

    Interview

    Came into the store, Store Manager asked me a series of questions and wrote down my answers. After I had an interview with the store manager, I had to have a phone interview with the district manager because I was applying for a management position. I have held interviews for the company and they are very laid back. The candidate comes into the store hopefully when it is not busy, and the manager asks the questions and writes down your answers to later score you. It's a simple 1 on 1 process.

    • Q: Describe a time when you had a difficult customer. How did you handle the situation and how did you ensure that the customer left happy?   Answer Question

    Assistant Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 days. I interviewed at Things Remembered in April 2015.

    Interview

    I had a pleasant brief interview with the store manager and was called the next day for a second interview with the district manager. The second interview was odd and inappropriate. At one point the DM, an older lady, asked me several personal questions about my family, and at one point asked me, verbatim, if I "liked my stepfather"(??). The entire second interview lasted less than twenty minutes. I never heard back from her. Pay rate was terrible as well. $10.70 an hour for a full-time assistant manager is insulting.

    Interview

    I applied on a Monday and received a call to come in on Thursday. I was interviewed by the Store Manager. It was simple questions about work experience and then we role played a bit. I had to sell him an item. I was then called back on Saturday to come in the next Thursday to meet with the District Manager. Again, just basic question and retail knowledge. I was then told I was getting a background check done. Friday morning I received an offer letter.

    Reasons for Declining

    Unfortunately the pay was decent (10.25 hr) but there wouldn't be enough hours to make it worth it. Assistants at this store only get 30 hours...I would have made enough to pay daycare and had nothing left.
