    Cashier Interview

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at West Marine (Fort Pierce, FL) in August 2016.

    Interview

    When going in for my interview with the store manager the girls up front were very polite and let him know I had arrived. I had no problem going to the managers office and having the 1:1 conversation about past employment, why I left, and obvious questions such as if I smoked, and what days I'd be willing or not willing to work.

    Interview Questions

    • General questions were asked such as do I smoke, what days would I be willing to work? Which days would i need off? If there was anything I'd be opposed to working such as mornings or evenings? Past employers? Why'd I leave there?   1 Answer
