Sales Associate/Cashier Interview

Sales Associate/Cashier
Saint Catharines, ON

I applied in-person and the process took 4 days - interviewed at Aéropostale in November 2009.

Interview Details I applied during a job fair before the store was open. They had a quick back and forth there, which I didn't know was an interview. But I got called back for a second interview with the store manager and a store manager from another Aeropostale. After a half-an-hour interview, with situational and general questions, I was hired!

Sales Associate/Cashier Interview

Sales Associate/Cashier
San Antonio, TX (US)

I applied in-person and the process took 3 weeks - interviewed at Aéropostale in June 2012.

Interview Details The interview was a group interview. I had it in the bag. The other girls were shy. I was the most talkative and outspoken one there. I got a call back a week later saying i got the job. Went in to fill out all my paperwork, it's a lot of paperwork. Hardly got any training but i caught on quick. It's not that hard to fold clothes. The cash register training was easy as well.

Interview Question – All the saftey questions were unexpected and difficult. there was never anytime to study the list of things they were asking. We couldn't hang out in the back room and we were always too busy on the floor.   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – They said they would like me to work there i said great when do I start?

Sales Associate/Cashier Interview

Sales Associate/Cashier

I applied in-person and the process took a day - interviewed at Aéropostale in April 2012.

Interview Details I have been looking for a job for a while and Aeropostale seemed ideal since I am 16 and would feel comfortable in their atmosphere. I went in and asked for an application, filled it out then and there and handed it back. A little over a week later I called back to follow up and the manager looked through all the applications he got, found mine, and said to come in the following day for an interview. When I went into the store for the interview and asked to meet the manager I was told would be interviewing me, he actually was not aware that the interview was set up because apparently he was not informed. He took me to the front of the store where there was a spot for me to write and I filled out some paper work. Next he asked me a few general questions about myself and my work ethic. Next he asked to describe three characteristics of myself which I did. He then continued to tell me about the different zones of the store, how its encouraged for employees to wear Aero clothing, etc. After more brief talking she actually said right there, well I would actually like to offer you the job! I accepted and was told that if I could get my working permits in by the next week I would be able to attend orientation. The employer interviewing me was very nice and everyone there seemed to genuinely like each other. Two days later when I came in with my work paper I handed them into a different manager who was working at the time and he was absolutely wonderful. He made a few funny jokes and commented on who he had heard great things about me. The atmosphere presented has made me excited to start my work!

Side note: though I had a one-one interview, I have known girls who had a group interview with up to six others applying for the job,I am not sure what distinguishes whether you get a one-on-one interview or not.

Interview Question – Describe three qualities about yourself that make you suited for this job.   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – I did not negotiate my $8/hr salary because I have no retail experience and am still a minor, therefore I felt minimum wage was acceptable.
