    Part Time Assistant Manager Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Braintree, MA
    Accepted Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at The Body Shop (Braintree, MA) in June 2014.

    Interview

    I had one in person interview, questions were relevant to the position and my past experience, followed by two phone interviews (one with a different store manager and one with the district manager), interviews were short, store managers cared about past experience, future goals, and how I would handle different situations in that position.
