Store Manager Interview

Average Interview

Application

I applied in-person. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at Vans.

Interview

Vans can have a extensive interview process if you are interviewing for upper management. The interviews can be short and lacking depth. If you can come prepared then you will no problem. Confidence goes a log way.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 5+ weeks. I interviewed at Vans in November 2013.

    Interview

    Met with DM offsite at a Starbucks. It almost seemed like a bro-date. He just kinda chilled with me and didn't really ask many questions that were explicitly work related. He did dabble a bit, such as 'What type of manager are you' and 'How do you inspire your team.' Overall, it was a pleasant experience.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Vans.

    Interview

    I went through 3 interviews during the process. One with another store manager, another with the district manager, and another with the regional manager. After going through all 3 interviews (which were in multiple places), I had to wait for them to run a background check on me. The entire process took almost a month to complete.

    Interview Questions

    • Everything was pretty straight forward interview questions. Nothing unexpected or "weird". They asked a lot of questions about how I relate to the brand and why I liked Vans in particular. There were quite a few situational questions like "tell me about a time when you did this" or "walk me through your process for this".   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    I was initially offered much lower than what I was already making at another retailer. The negotiation process was fairly easy. I told them that I was unwilling to take a paycut, and that I needed to make the same amount as I was currently making in order to consider a career with Vans. I was called back 3 days later with a counter offer meeting my minimum.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at Vans (Toronto, ON (Canada)) in March 2012.

    Interview

    The Interview Process was very positive. I was asked to come back for a second interview right away and met with the District Manager and Director of Stores the next day. Each person that I met was very inspiring and motivating. They asked a lot of in depth questions and gave a lot of useful information. As part of the process they have to complete a background check which took a long time. I was waiting for an offer but couldn't wait to find out if I got the job so I had to accept an offer from a different company. Otherwise I would have accepted.

    Interview Questions

    • For me the most difficult question for me was regarding VF, because I had no idea that they were part of a larger corporation with so many sister companies.   Answer Question
