Easy Interview

Application

I applied online. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Vitamin World in May 2013.

Interview

Applied on internet and received phone call to interview about 3 days later. My 1st interview was with the store manager in her back office. SM seemed stressed but very friendly and genuinely interested in my responses. I appreciated the fact that I did not feel rushed or pressured during the process. After the interview I was told to expect a phone call from the District manager in a few days regarding my second interview.
True to her word I received a phone call about 4 days later and I came back for the second interview with the DM. The DM surprised me when he took me out of the store for the interview. The DM also seemed very interested in me and we talked for well over an hour. It wasn’t until the drive home, that I realized just how good of a salesman this DM was. He basically mirrored me in order to establish a personal connection with me and lower my guard. He no doubt did this in order to sell me on Vitamin World while at the same time, determining my suitability for employment there.

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Vitamin World (Escondido, CA) in January 2011.

    Interview

    I had a total of three interviews with Vitamin World located in the Escondido Mall. I did so well on the interviews, answered all the questions in a precised professional way possible. The other applicant came in to the interview late. Also according to my friend that works there, I did really well but the Store manager decided to hire the other person just because she knew her and that she worked inside the mall too.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Vitamin World (Marlborough, MA).

    Interview

    Sat down and asked some questions, told me a bit about the company and how great it is and how much I can potentially make (lies). I applied online and met the store manager and then phone screened with the district manager. Store manager doesn't generally hire a lot so process wasn't perfect but not to bad. If you're half motivated you should be a decent fit here, assuming you're ok with being way underpaid

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Vitamin World (San Antonio, TX) in August 2012.

    Interview

    I was called in for an interview on a quiet morning. I told the sales associate I was there to see the manager for an interview. After a few minutes the manager came out and directed me to a back room. I passed a girl who looked to be my age in a tank top and jean shorts filling out paperwork and I thought she was filling out an application.
    The interview was about 30 minutes of typical questions. I wasn't ever asked if I had experience with some of the products they sell. I was asked what my strengths and weaknesses were, how I would deal with an irate customer, and how quickly I can problem solve. If you can google interview questions, she pretty much asked all of the normal questions that can easily be answered.
    After answering all of the questions, she said that she really liked me and they'd like to hire me. I was very happy but only for a split second when she continued and said, "...but, we already just hired the young lady outside. I still wanted to interview you and would love for you to reapply when we're hiring again."
    I was appalled. It was a waste of time. I dressed in a business suit for a job that probably paid minimum wage just to be beat out by someone in jean shorts and a tank top.
