Sales Associate Interview

Anonymous Employee in Los Angeles, CA (US)

Positive Experience
Average Interview

Application

I applied online. I interviewed at Hallmark (Los Angeles, CA (US)).

Interview

I applied on the company website and then called the store a few days later to follow up on my application. I received a call a few days later to schedule an in-person interview at the store location. Contrary to most people's quick 10 minute interviews, my interview was actually about 40 minutes long. The manager discussed the history of the company and the quality standards of the company. Then she asked me questions about my work history and my qualifications. Then she posed several hypothetical work situations and asked me to explain how I'd deal with those circumstances. I got the sense that she wasn't necessarily so much concerned with my specific answers as she was with my ability to decide how to handle events without a lot of notice. She took lots of notes as I answered her questions, but it didn't give the sense of added pressure or judgment--more like as if she was interviewing me for a magazine article. After she got all the information she needed, she told me she was finishing up some more interviews in the coming days and that I'd hear from her in about a week. I got a call 5 days later offering me the job.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at Hallmark (Spokane Valley, Spokane, WA (US)) in November 2018.

    Interview

    It was very laid back. The manager made me feel comfortable. It wasn't an intensive interview, just some questions about past retail experience and availability/flexibility for the holidays. After he offered me the job, he walked me through the next steps and sent me an email to get my background check started. It didn't take very long, maybe a couple of days and I was put on the schedule within a week or so.

    The interview questions were directly asked from a sheet and in a specific form. The hiring manager wanted to know a lot about my previous retail experience and the responsibilities and roles I have had in the past. The manager was friendly and the interview was brief, no longer than an hour.

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at Hallmark.

    Interview

    Personable, one to one with the manager. Interview was short, and sometimes may be offered a job on the spot. Manager will ask if you have any previous work experience. Generally will get an idea of how often you are able to work in store, and if you are flexible, able to stand long hours.

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Hallmark (Oxford, MS (US)).

    Interview

    Made 1 out of 2 interviews. I received a phone call from a woman with a very thick accent. I could not understand any thing that she was saying, and asked her multiple times to repeat. This aggravated the both of us. By the end of the interview, I knew I was not receiving a call back.
