    Sales Associate Interview

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Zumiez (Melbourne, FL) in June 2017.

    Interview

    My first interview was solo with just the manager. We went over my resume, she was very personable, easy to talk to, and didn't ask anything too out of the ordinary. I was immediately asked if I'd like to attend the second interview and said yes. The second interview was a group interview towards the back of the store with myself and five other applicants. It wasn't as bad as I expected from some of these other interviews, I didn't have to sing, dance, or make up some type of chant. We basically just each went around talking about one interesting thing that would make us right for zumiez. We did an exercise where we had to pick one female item and one male item and sell it to the others in our group. Overall it was a good experience, unlike any other interview I've ever had.

    Interview

    Basically a group interview with 14 other people including myself. They split us into two groups and had us basically do a group interview that mostly consisted of presentation to check out our personalities. In order to get the job you must be very outspoken and fun. Myself along with another female were the only two who had gotten hired from our group

    Part Time Sales Associate Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in West Chester, OH
    Declined Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Zumiez (West Chester, OH) in June 2016.

    Interview

    It was a group interview. There were four of us interviewed at once and we were interviewed by the store manager and the district manager. They opened the interview by asking us to tell a joke. They did activities like an open-ended question relay, where you had to ask five open-ended questions to show how you can interact with a customer. In another activity, the managers separated us one by one and one of them pretended to be a customer that was refusing to speak to us. We had 90 seconds to ask more open-ended questions and get them to talk to us. The interview really focused on your customer service skills. I didn't know how to build a skate deck at the time, and they said they could teach me that but they can't teach people skills. The end of the interview required us to put together an outfit. The store manager gave us a scenario (going hiking in Yellow Springs) and we had to choose an outfit and justify why we chose it.

    Marketing Analyst Interview

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Zumiez (Lynnwood, WA) in May 2017.

    Interview

    Was called for phone screening by hiring manager, then in person interview scheduled for following week. Separately interviewed with 4 different people, 2 from marketing department, 2 from higher organizational level. One interviewer stopped in the middle of the interview to tell me that they "did not like" a person who was walking by the window of the interview room.

    Took a skills test on Excel, left the interview feeling good, but was not given a time-frame for when to expect an answer.

    NEVER HEARD BACK ONE WAY OR ANOTHER. This I found to be very UNPROFESSIONAL, a simple email is common courtesy. I even reached out twice to the hiring manager who contacted me and got no response. Very displeased with the overall experience.

    Overall environment seemed chill, everyone was dressed casually and it seemed like a fun place to work.
