Shoes Associate Interview

Shoes Associate
Cape May Court House, NJ (US)

I applied in-person and 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.

Interview Question – How do you feel about working for minimum wage?   View Answer

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

Retail Sales Associate
Baltimore, MD (US)

I applied online and 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.

Interview Question – My unexpected question was when he said "Well I see here your studying engineering? I'm confused as to why do you want to work here?"   View Answer

Negotiation Details – I didn't have to negotiate he offered me a slightly higher hourly pay.
