    Part Time Assistant Manager Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Jeffersonville, OH (US)
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Hot Topic (Jeffersonville, OH (US)).

    Interview

    I had two interviews being that I was going for management position. First was with a manager and then I had an interview with the DM! It was fun and very calm. They asked very simple questions and then normal and then talked about pop culture and movies and music. Something you would expect from HT

    Interview Questions

    • How do you stay up to date on music and bands.   1 Answer

    Negotiation

    They matched what I was making at my other job but I wish I would have asked for more.
