    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Ann Taylor (Boston, MA) in June 2015.

    Interview

    I applied online and heard back about 2 weeks later, and I didn't even follow up because I thought I had no chance of getting this job. The hardest part was the online application and the lengthy personality test you have to take. Anyway, I was called by one of the managers and she was extremely kind. She asked me when I could come in for an interview and I went in a few days later. It was a one on one interview in the back office and it was very conversational. I think she was reading questions off a paper but she didn't take notes or anything. She asked me how and how often I communicated with clients at my previous job, where I get my fashion inspiration, and my favorite piece of clothing for this upcoming summer (I was not prepared for this one!). There were no wrong answers. The manager told me everything I need to know about the company instead of "quizzing" me on what I knew about it.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Ann Taylor (Atlanta, GA) in May 2015.

    Interview

    Just show up. They had so Many no shows to the interview that they would have hired anyone. There has been a lot of turnover and they have trouble getting new people To stay more than a few days due to bad attitudes in stores. The interviewer was told that I didn't want to work in an environment of gossip and friction so my first day was horrible. I was scheduled On a Sunday with no manager and a part time Person that was clueless and women gossiping and complaints and one lady was so rude. Terrible location.
