First, I got an email from a recruiter asking me if Inwas interested in the manager position, I said I was and we scheduled a quick call. I immediately was contacted by the district manager and we scheduled an interview. She took the time to come to the mall closest to me, which was super nice. After that interview, there was an over-the-phone interview with the regional manager and Human Resources. The whole process took approximately one week.

There were two levels. The initial interview and then the interview with the store manager I believe.

Totally unprofessional. One person gave me impression I had the job, so I put everything on hold, until they then turned around and sent me a standard email saying they'd chosen another candidate. They whole process, from first interview to phone interview and waiting for an answer, took almost a month. A complete waste of time.

I wasn't impressed with the interview process at all. The initial in-person interview with a manager and district manager was great, very positive. Then I had a second interview with 2 people at the company head office - it was a conference call which is never the best way to interview and the two women almost seemed to play 'good cop, bad cop', About a week later I got a call from one of the original interviewers as me if I would consider the lesser position of assistant manager with the prospect of training as a manager (the job I had initially applied for) and I said I was very interested. Then...nothing. I followed up with head office and got a reply saying I was welcome to reapply as an assistant manager. The whole process took over a month and turned out to be a complete waste of time.
