    Seasonal Sales Associate Interview

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Zumiez (Minneapolis, MN) in November 2016.

    Interview

    Applied online as a seasonal sales associate Friday morning, and was called back that night to come in for a group interview Sunday morning. A week prior, I had a group interview at Tilly's, and while the managers were chill and the other interviewees were nice, I thought the Zumiez environment was even more down-to-earth. The interview started before the store even opened so we could do everything without people shopping. There were two other people interviewing. They asked us about ourselves, and then we pretty much started playing some games. The first game was to create a rap, poem, or chant as to why we wanted to work there. Since the job focuses a lot on teamwork, the three of us worked together. The next game was an open-ended question relay game. Basically the manager would act as a customer and say a short phrase and you would have to ask 5 open-ended questions about it. If you asked a yes or no, you had to start over. The final game was to for us three to ask two open-ended questions to the manager in order to sell an outfit, and then with that information, we picked an outfit that fit the criteria. Was a super chill interview. Managers were super chill, and I was more relaxed in this interview than the Tilly's one. At the end of the interview, the main manager asked us if we all had phones, bank accounts, and could drive. She hired all three of us on the spot! Super dope and cool.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Zumiez.

    Interview

    Long interview process, lunch followed by two or three rounds of more standard interviews. Interviews were one on one or with 2-3 interviewers. The role was way more based on events than I anticipated. Even though I have worked a bunch in action sports, in skiing, it was not at all a cultural fit.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5 weeks. I interviewed at Zumiez (Lynnwood, WA) in September 2016.

    Interview

    I applied online, and heard back the next day. Overall I interviewed three times. Once on the phone with the help desk lead, once in person with the same person, and lastly with the directer of infrastructure and the same help desk lead. I thought I did super super well and still didn't get the job. My only and biggest complaint is that I didnt get it and NEVER heard back from anyone that I didn't get it. I just waited forever and never got any type of response.

    Part Time Sales Associate Interview

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Zumiez (Lansing, MI) in July 2016.

    Interview

    I applied online and got a call back a few weeks later for a group interview. The group interview had about 8 other people. First, we all had to tell a little bit about ourselves. Next, the manager told us each a sentence and we had to ask them three questions that couldn't be answered with a yes or no. Last, the manager told us stuff that he liked and we had to go find an outfit for him. Overall, I think the interview was pretty laid back compared to other interviews. I didn't get the job but one thing I know is that you need to be really talkative for a job like Zumiez.
