    Application Details

    I applied in-person – interviewed at Claire's Stores.

    Interview Details

    The district manager at the time who spoke to me for the first interview was really nice and friendly. The second interview was with the store manager and it went smoothly. She asked questions based off a sheet of paper she had. Overall it was an easy interview process.

    Interview Questions
    • The most difficult question for me was when I was asked about how I worked with others in a previous job because I had no previous job to use as an example.   Answer Question

    Application Details

    I applied in-person. The process took a weekinterviewed at Claire's Stores in June 2014.

    Interview Details

    My friend and I walked into the store & asked if they were hiring the a manager was at the desk at the time and replied yes and gave us a both paper applications. I turned mine in a few days later to a sales associate and brought my friend back a week later to turn in hers, she turned hers into the manager that gave us the application and on the spot asked her if she would be open to do a interview the following day I also spoke with her and she set up a interview with me as well the following day. We came in the following day and 6 girls were standing around two managers and they were "sucking up". After she finished with them she came to us and I was in a group with 4 other girls and she asked some general questions, then started telling us about how we would must meet their quota standards. She was also very demanding and a little bit on the snarky side. The process took about 30-45 minutes and at at the end of it we were told we would receive a call back within 5 days regardless if we got the job or not. I never received a call neither did my friend nevertheless, we didn't get the job.

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Hoffman Estates, IL
    Application Details

    The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Claire's Stores in July 2011.

    Interview Details

    I applied for the position online and was contacted within a couple weeks by Human Resources for a phone interview. Phone interview was about 30 min and asked very basic questions regarding my resume and some situational questions.

    After speaking with HR they asked to come in for an in person interview, which I went about a week later. First I had a brief face-to-face interview with the HR person I spoke with on the phone. Then I met with two people from the real estate department for an additional interview which took about 45 minutes. I received an email a few weeks later confirming I did not get the offer.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took a dayinterviewed at Claire's Stores in November 2010.

    Interview Details

    The Human Resource assistant called and asked me questions on my resume. Not personal at all. Literally named typical questions about my resume that were clearly already stated on the resume. Then, she said they would let me know if they wanted to continue either way within 3 days..... 14 days later, after trying to follow up multiple times, I got a letter saying they weren't interested.

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Northville, MI
    Application Details

    I applied in-person. The process took a dayinterviewed at Claire's Stores in May 2010.

    Interview Details

    I walked into the store and filled out an application in person, then scheduled an interview when I handed it in. Interviewed with the Assistant Manager, who read questions from a sheet and wrote down my answers. She spoke very little, which in turn made me feel like I was talking too much. I interviewed poorly and was not offered the position.

    Human Resources Assistant Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Hoffman Estates, IL
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took a dayinterviewed at Claire's Stores in April 2010.

    Interview Details

    Phone interview was set up within a week or two of applying. The questions were very brief and then she told me about the position. The interviewer was very nice, and she was new to the company. All in all, I believe the position was a step down from what I am currently doing, so I was not offered a face-to-face interview.

    Interview Questions
    • This position is highly administrative and less involved than your current position, why are you interested?   Answer Question
