    Store Associate Interview

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at Winners (Toronto, ON (Canada)).

    Interview

    Applied online. Got a call about 2 weeks later for an interview. Had to wait around as when I got there for a 10 am interview all the employees were having a team meeting or something. Finally went up to let them know I was there. The person who called me apparently didn't tell the interviewer that I was coming as she was confused at first. Then I had to fill out another application, that asks everything that was on my resume anyway. Finished that, taken to office to answer questions. The actual interview was about 30 mins minus the time I had to wait and fill out the application. Had to give another copy of my resume over as well.

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Winners (Toronto, ON (Canada)) in June 2016.

    Interview

    Quick and Simple.The interview lasted for 1 hour. There were lots of standard retail related situational questions. Honestly it felt too long for just a minimum wage job. My interviewer was good. If you are selected you would have to attend a two days orientation which seems bit long. They just go over their customer service and Health & Safety policies.

    Cashier Interview

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Winners (Toronto, ON (Canada)) in June 2015.

    Interview

    I applied online through their website. After two weeks I received a phone call from a recruiter and he told that they wanted some people to start asap. I expressed my interest in the opportunity. First he explained me the hours and the location. Then he asked me some simple behavioural questions and about past experience. In the end we scheduled an interview for a face to face meeting for next week. I went to a location store for the face to face interview, The recruiter in here was a different from the one who called me. She was not very polite. She asked me some behavioural questions. She seemed like she was not listening at all what I was saying. She laughed at my face when I told her my availability by saying that this did not depend on me but on the store hours. I told her that is why we are here to reach an agreement with each other or not. There is no need to laugh at each other. I was very surprised by her attitude. It tells a lot about the company culture. In the end I left with a really bad feeling.
