Assistant Manager Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate in Millcreek, UT
No Offer
Negative Experience
Average Interview

Application

I applied online. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at dressbarn (Millcreek, UT).

Interview

I applied for a full time assistant manager position. I was invited to an interview, where I was informed that the only position open was a part time store clerk. This was probably the most unprofessional interview I've ever been to, and that's saying a lot. The manager was not prepared with questions, nor had she really even looked at my resume. She acted like she was better than me and that I was wasting her time. At the very end, she asked me to go out into the store to select a nice outfit. When I came back, it was as if she had forgotten about me. That was the end if the interview, I awkwardly brought the items back and left.

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at dressbarn.

    Interview

    Multiple Interviews with store manager and district manager. Hiring platform incredibly difficult and lack-luster. Paperwork redundancies and glitches make the process take far too long. Difficulty of interview depends entirely on how much experience individual managers have.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at dressbarn (Succasunna, NJ) in July 2015.

    Interview

    I applied for the job on Indeed because they had a position posted on there. The bad thing is that when I went for the interview the person doing the interview said they did not actually have any open positions at the moment. I don't know why they are advertising for jobs they don't have.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at dressbarn (Grapevine, TX) in April 2015.

    Interview

    I applied online and was invited by phone to come interview. We sat in the dressing rooms and chatted. The manager smelled like an old ashtray and didn't really ask very many questions. She just hired me. She described the job as being involved with Brand and Operations. All I was ever allowed to do was operations.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. I interviewed at dressbarn (Redlands, CA).

    Interview

    (1) I entered the store dressed for an interview and got THE manager, NOT an assistant or a sales person. This gives you a chance to sell yourself a little upfront. No shorts, flip-flops or inappropriate attire please. I was given an application and was interviewed on the spot and then a second interview set up with the DSM. A Personality test was also taken.Total 2 interviews. Was hired as an assistant and then entered their Pros program to further my career and skills

    Interview Questions

    • They asked me to give them an example of something I'd done (and was particularly proud of) where I had gone above and beyond the call of duty to help a customer or employee at a previous job.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    Typically an assistant manager with Dressbarn would only start at around $12-1$14 per hour depending on their education and previous retail experience. I started a little higher than most assistants because I had extensive retail and management background. I'd say the negotiation phase was easy.
