Assistant Store Manager Interview

Assistant Store Manager
Boston, MA (US)

I applied through a recruiter and the process took 1+ week - interviewed at Abercrombie & Fitch.

Interview Details Interview with the District Manager, usually in a food court or coffee shop nearby. Interviews are standardized, so interviewer first asks you general questions about yourself (what you've been doing recently, where you graduated college and when) and then asks you a series of predetermined questions meant to give a fair run of things for each candidate. Questions generally have to do with tough situations you've been in and how you've dealt with them. There are a lot of questions and I made up or elaborated on a few of them just because I haven't been in that many situations where there was significant conflict.

Interview Questions

  • Have you ever been in a group where one of the members either didn't get along with you or didn't get along with the whole group? How did you deal with that situation?   Answer Question
  • Have you ever had a conflict with a manager or employer and if so, how did you deal with it?   Answer Question
  • How would you describe your leadership style? Provide examples.   Answer Question

Assistant Store Manager Interview

Assistant Store Manager

I applied online and interviewed at Abercrombie & Fitch.

Interview Details It was one interview with the District Manager in the food court of the mall. She was nice and respectful during the interview. There were formal questions but it seemed very informal considering it was in the food court of the mall. An offer was made within one week.

Interview Question – There really weren't difficult questions. Questions were a mix of behavior-based and competencies i.e. how would you handle an angry customer, what are your management skills, etc. It didn't seem to matter how much related experience I had as long as I was on-point during the appropriate questions/answers. The interviewer was serious but not intimidating.   Answer Question
