    Assistant Sales Manager Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Birmingham, AL

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at Brookstone (Birmingham, AL) in May 2015.

    Interview

    It was quite lengthy. I met with the Store Sales Manager, was interviewed again by a District Manager twice. Was hired two weeks later. We discussed selling culture and energy, there was a ton of focus placed on energy level and willingness to sell difficult products (massage chairs). They focused very heavily on my small box speciality retail experience and didn't even want to hear about my other retail management experience. Being a qualified speciality retail manager clearly gave me an advantage, and if I had even more experience, I probably would have been an easier hire. They pay relatively well mainly because they go after experienced associates.
