    Sales Associate Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Saint Charles, IL
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Cost Plus (Saint Charles, IL).

    Interview

    GM or manager asks a few basic questions about availability and experience, and then they try to get to know you. It can feel intense, but often times you being lax helps them like you and see you as a good future employee.

    Interview Questions

    • If I (GM) was having a bad day and I lashed out at you...would you be able to confront me later and talk?   Answer Question
