Second Assistant Manager Interview

Anonymous Employee in West Hartford, CT
Accepted Offer
Positive Experience
Easy Interview

Application

I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Zumiez (West Hartford, CT) in January 2015.

Interview

I applied and I randomly was called one day. Two days later, I sat in the mall food court with the manager and we had a humorous interview filled with questions of my past management experience and three days after that he called explaining what he thought my strengths were and offered me a job. They e-mail a job offer and then you fill out forms on a computer.

    A employee had referred me to an up and coming store manager. We met up at the mall food court and sat and talked for a half hour. It was more laid back and conversational than an interview.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took a week. I interviewed at Zumiez (Cincinnati, OH) in June 2014.

    Interview

    I was asked a lot of questions that required me to explain my thought process when initiating, building and closing a sale. Most were open-ended, and my interviewer would ask me to elaborate when I wasn't sure there was a way to continue. It was illuminating, actually, and helped set the tone for an awesome learning experience.

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took a week. I interviewed at Zumiez (Mays Landing, NJ) in July 2013.

    Interview

    Literally walked around the mall, it wasn't an interview. It felt like he was trying to talk to me as a friend as opposed to a potential manager. Extremely easy and I was offered job on the spot.
