    Senior Assistant Manager Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Melbourne, FL
    Accepted Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at f.y.e. (Melbourne, FL) in October 2016.

    Interview

    Process was only for formalities. I needed the interview with the DM to get the job, but I had such high recommendations that it was not treated as an actual interview. We just sat there and he asked me bizarrely easy questions and was surprised when I gave more information than he was expecting.

    Interview

    All information before the interview is put online, then they contacted me via phone and was given a time span to pick from for the interview. The interview was at the store, took about 15 minutes and was told they were doing more interviews at the time and would be contacted shortly with their decision. A few days later I got the call that I got the job, and when to come in for training and to fill out the paperwork.

    Assistant Manager Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Cincinnati, OH
    Accepted Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took a week. I interviewed at f.y.e. (Cincinnati, OH).

    Interview

    The interviewing process was easy. The manager who interviewed me was extremely unprepared and very obviously not comfortable with interviewing. I was asked a few questions about how to deal with customers in certain situations and was asked about how to deal with shoplifters and cash handling. The magazines and memberships were mentioned but the standards were not.

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at f.y.e..

    Interview

    The interview process was actually really laid back. The managers just want to get an idea of how personable you are as a potential employee in the sense that you would be able to positively interact with customers. The turn around time to hear back from anyone is about 2-3 weeks.

    Second Assistant Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Austin, TX
    No Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at f.y.e. (Austin, TX).

    Interview

    Very casual and low pressure. Manager skipped most of the routine questions but DID however ask me if I had any experience with loss prevention because they've been experiencing 4% shrink which is not good, also I was asked if I had experience with "professional" shoplifters. I was contacted by phone and offered an interview for assistant manager but when I got there, was a bit disappointed that I was being interviewed for a part time position with no benefits and lower pay. Don't know if that was a ploy or not.

    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 6 days. I interviewed at f.y.e. (North Olmsted, OH) in June 2015.

    Interview

    Waited five minutes in the store to be interviewed. Only 2 people were working and they seemed to be busy. Went to the food court to be interviewed. I was asked 6 questions or so, all pretty easy. However, the lady said there were other people being interviewed in the next couple of weeks, and if they wanted to hire me they would call me.
