  1. 1.

    What do you know about our bookstore?

      Before your job interview, make sure you are familiar with the company mission and values. You could visit the company website, read employee reviews or talk to anyone you know that works there. Learn as much as you can! Your interest in current seasonal promotions and ongoing events will show them how well you would integrate into this position.

      Watch the videos on their website or social media and take note of the information on their careers page if one is available. Be prepared to talk about how much you appreciate their values such as doing book drives for the community schools. Whatever their mission is, you need to know it.

      Rachelle's Answer

      "I come to your bookstore weekly! I'm passionate about reading and love that you do author readings each week showcasing new talent and promoting the lost art of hard copy reading material."

      Rachelle's Answer

      "As an avid reader, I often purchase gifts for my friends and family centered around books. I have checked out your website and followed you on Facebook and Instagram. You also have great reviews from your loyal customers on Yelp. All of these things make me excited to work here."

      Rachelle's Answer

      "I am familiar with all of the community efforts your bookstore facilitates. Local author readings and book signings are an excellent way for our city to become familiar with talent in their city. I also greatly appreciate the fact that you have fundraised 10,000 books in the past three years for underprivileged children. These are all reasons why I am excited to join your business."

      Anonymous Answer

      "I followed you on Facebook and saw the pictures of your store. Your store seems to offer a great collection of books and a wide selection of games, movies, and music as well. I really like that you have a variety of options. It gets me excited about working here."

      Rachelle's Answer

      If possible, you should visit the location in person rather than simply following on social media. This shows extra effort and genuine interest.

      "I have followed your bookstore on Facebook for a while now, which is where I saw your job ad, initially. I recently visited your shop and picked up a copy of 'Then She Was Gone,' a mystery novel one of your staff members recommended to me. I appreciate your vast collection of books, games, movies, and music. Your selection and excellent customer service training make me excited to work here."
