    I interviewed in-person. The process took a day - interviewed at Marshalls in July 2012.

    Interview Details

    1 interview, got the job. Not many hours, and minimum wage is what was offered. Some work is better than no work was my response. I also said that my first sales position was for Kinney Shoes in the early 80's. I thought it quite ironic that my life had come full circle.

    Negotiation Details
    I didn't even try to negotiate; I thought I was locked in to the minimal wage. I sort of froze up, but this experience has made me be more aware for future negotiations.

    Retail Sales Associate Interview

    Application Details

    I interviewed online. The process took 3 weeks - interviewed at Marshalls.

    Interview Details

    First I filled out the application. Then I got a call back after a few weeks. I had actually forgot I applied for the job by the time they called me back. I set up an interview which went perfectly. He asked me the usual questions. I was studying engineering at the time and he was concerned I was over qualified at the time and was confused as to why I wanted the job, but I was honest and told him I needed money to pay for books and he respected that. I was hired and then started training shortly after the interview. The work environment I actually did not like at all, because everyone was rude. I can understand rude customers, but the employees were rude as well. I'm not saying all Marshalls have rude employees though. It could have just been my location. The store was always a mess too no matter how much you put clothes back where they belong someone always takes it back down and the employees don't put clothes back correctly either. I also worked in the dressing room giving people numbers. I never worked on the register. I was either on the floor organizing or in the dressing room. I liked working in the dressing room because it was quiet and I had control to keep it organized. It was peaceful back there most of the time too.

    Had a over the phone interview, interview with the store manager, final with the district manager. After the interview with district manager I thought I had the job. I had to email the HR office 16 days later just find out they moved on to other candidates. Very very unprofessional.

    I interviewed through an employee referral. The process took 2 days - interviewed at Marshalls in September 2010.
