    Sales Associate Interview

    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 7+ weeks. I interviewed at Hancock Fabrics (Birmingham, AL) in February 2016.

    Interview

    About 20 minutes, going over my personal experiences with sewing and crafting that allowed me to need little training, and my approach to sales and customer service. We seemed a good fit, offered and accepted job at only interview, but offered pay less than expected for experience
