    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Talbots (Camarillo, CA) in June 2013.

    Interview

    After applying, I received a call in about a week. The interview was standard and took place in an office in the back. The manager explained workers' responsibilities, shifts, etc. so I thought I had a shot at landing the job. She also asked me questions about how I perceived fashion in my life and some of my past volunteer experience (I had no previous work experience at the time). At the end of the interview we went out to the sales floor and she told me to give her assistance with finding an item as if she were a customer and I were a worker. It went well and I thought I would get the job, but they called back about 4 days later to say that they were looking for someone with more sales experience than I had.

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 1 dayinterviewed at Talbots (New York, NY) in May 2010.

    Interview

    Well it wasn't necessarily an interview, more like a pre-intereview. I spoke with the hiring manager who was at the cashier. I waited for about 5 minutes and she asked me to walk with her around the store. She asked me three questions:
    "Since it seems you have no retail experience, why have you decided to apply to a retail store?"
    "Where do you get your fashion style from?"
    "What do you know about Talbots store and company?" "Did you visit the website?"
    To which I admitted I did however I did not read anything about the but I did visit the website to get idea of what audience the clothes is marketed to. Overall I answered the questions in a terrible manner but for whatever reason she seemed to want to give me another chance and let me asked to do some research and give her a call back when I felt ready with my answers. I found her very nice, honest, and helpful. She gave me a little insight on how to answer retail store related interview questions.
