    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 6+ weeks. I interviewed at Vitamin Shoppe (Richmond, VA) in March 2015.

    Interview

    The interview process starts with a phone screen, 2 interviews with store management and 1 interview with a district manager. You may be asked to do some travelling for the interviews, but generally no more than 10 miles difference. Interview strategies vary by manager, some use scripted questions, others treat it as a casual conversation. Interviews are 1-on-1 and the process can take up to 2 month because of the number of interviews and the availability of management. Interview questions look for personal experiences and general rhetoric is not enough for a sufficient answer. There is a small section of the interview that delves into product knowledge, but candidates without product knowledge should not be put off by this.

    Interview Questions

    • Tell me about a time you had to deal with a difficult customer.   Answer Question
    • You are alone in the store, you are currently helping a customer that will require at least 10 more minutes of your time. You also have a customer at the register waiting to check out, the phone is ringing and there is shipment to be put away. How do you prioritize your tasks?   1 Answer
