Scenario: "it's Black Friday, the store is busy and a mess. You have the duty of fixing the jeans but you have to welcome the customers coming in AND there's people trying to shoplift in because of it being hectic. How would you handle the situation?"
I would focus on the task at hand, that being the jeans. Then every so often, check up on customers coming in assuring them I can help them with anything. Also, looking around every couple seconds to check the surroundings.
Answer along the lines of "My first priority is to greet the customers coming in the store and asking what they're shopping for that day. For the most part, I can be fixing the jeans while engaging with customers. This also shows potential shoplifters that I am not so focused on my task that I am ignoring other activities around me, which will likely deter them from attempt to shoplift in my area."
You could say "hey just wanted to check up on customers, I know it can be hectic, but remember if you lose anything we have cameras to help you find it, they're all over the store "
I didn't. I knew the interview was a farce by this time.
FYI: Contrary to the person trying to deflect criticism, there is only ONE General Micro Systems and both locations (Rancho Cucamonga CA & Stuart FL) are owned by the same person, Udi Levin. They refer to the Stuart location as GMS East.
