    Jewelry Sales Associate Interview

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Fred Meyer Jewelers (Medford, OR).

    Interview

    I was called pretty quickly after submitting an online application. I was asked if I could come in interview right away. I was interviewed by two people in an informal public setting. Most of the questions that were asked came the most senior manager in the interview. Almost all questions were all situational and related to past sales and/or professional experience. The experience was professional, but comfortable at the same time. The hiring managers were polite, professional and did a remarkable job staying on topic given that there was considerable background noise the entire time.
