Bookstore Interview Questions

  1. 1.

    Why do you want to work here?

      The interviewer wants to hear that you are passionate about working for them. Think of the aspects you like most about this bookstore. Perhaps you have a friend who works there and loves it. Maybe you are looking forward to a significant discount on books. Just share what you like most about the company, and share that this is a big part of why you want to work for this organization.

      Rachelle's Answer

      "I am a passionate shopper of your store and an avid reader who loves to share that with others. As an inspiring writer, I would love to surround myself with up and coming authors and readers. As a customer, I believe in your store's values around customer care and the services you provide to the community."

      Rachelle's Answer

      "I have a friend who works here in the summer months, between semesters, and he said it's the best job he's ever held. He recommended that I apply here because I am equally passionate about research and reading. I would be a great resource for your customers."

      Rachelle's Answer

      "I have worked for larger big-box book retailers which makes me value, even further, the worth that small business brings to our community. I want to be a part of the movement that gets kids off of their phones, and interested in books again! I have some great ideas for community reading initiatives."

      Anonymous Answer

      "I like reading, but I also like being surrounded by a wide selection of books. Your bookstore feels like a library with your great collection, and I also like the ambiance of your store."

      Rachelle's Answer

      Nice answer, as it compliments the store while tying in your needs from a personal and employment perspective.
