    I applied through an employee referral. The process took a weekinterviewed at Ann Taylor.

    Interview Details

    manager was not the brightest and was very transparent in that her knowledge only extends beyond retail. It was the easiest interview. I referred by a friend and got called in for the interview and a week later I received a call that I was hired.

    I applied online. The process took 5 daysinterviewed at Ann Taylor in January 2015.

    Interview Details

    I'd received a phone call a week after applying for the position.

    As I walked into the store, the assistant manager welcome me with smile. As I waited for the manger of the store to come out, we had a lovely chat about ourselves. The manger finally came out and we introduced ourselves.

    Overall, the interview was very casual. I'd expected the interview to last 30 mins but instead we've talked for almost an hour (you know the interview is going well if you past the 30 minute mark).

    Just be yourself and do your research on the company. They expect you to know a thing or two about their brand.

    Interview Details

    Was very pleasant. Spoke to the Co-Manager and she was very welcoming. I was a bit confused because she was not the person I initially spoke to about the job.

    Negotiation Details
    Weird. It was as if they forced a certain pay, and did not ask me what I would like.
