    Assistant Store Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Bloomington, MN
    Declined Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Carter's (Bloomington, MN) in September 2011.

    Interview

    I filled out an application online and heard back from the hiring manager within two or three days. I'm pretty sure I only sent a resume, and didn't send a cover letter. The manager offered me a lot of flexibility for dates and times I could schedule the interview, but was able to get me in the next day! It was a personal (but overly informal) interview in which I felt comfortable showing my true personality and asking "silly" questions about the job. When my background check came back, the regional manager called me to schedule the final interview. I lived about 40 miles from Carter's at that time, and she drover all the way out to meet me.

    Interview Questions

    • Tell me about a time when your employees needed to be disciplined. What was the situation and how did you handle it?   Answer Question

    Reasons for Declining

    I was offered a job with regular business hours, great benefits, 401(k) contributions met 100%, and twice the hourly pay. I think I would have been happy at Carter's, but it wasn't the best option for my personal situation.
