    Retail Sales Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate

    Neutral Experience

    Interview

    I applied on Indeed for the Retail Ops Manager and received a call back a month later. They said that the position I applied for had already been filled so they were wondering if I would be interested in the retail sales position. I took the opportunity and scheduled an interview.

    When I got there, the GM was on lunch so he was about 10 min late for the interview. I understand things happen, so I didn’t mind. But the whole energy was off. The merchandiser that first greeted me looked so unhappy, rolling her eyes at a customer while ringing them up, the GM was late to my interview, and when we finally met, he was soooo unenthusiastic and monotone. Then the interview was conducted on the sales floor instead of a private area away from customers. We were sitting in front of the mirrors where customers try on makeup. He looked like he had never conducted an interview before and he wasn’t engaged in my answers. It’s as if he was just reading the questions off of a list and he wasn’t even paying attention to what I was saying.

    At the end of the interview, which I thought went pretty well, he said he is still looking for other candidates so he will keep in touch. I’m not sure but the whole process seemed very low-energy and disorganized. Not sure how I felt about it all.
