    Quick and easy, not nerve wracking in the least. Staff was very approaching and the manager was friendly and easygoing. We discussed my work background, my history of working in retail and my availability. Very nice environment to be around

    I applied online. The process took 4 daysinterviewed at Ann Taylor.

    Interview Details

    Applying online was pretty standard. I filled out forms regarding personal information after which I was prompted to complete an online survey. The survey took about thirty minutes to complete. You get asked questions regarding the way you would react to certain situations. Each question was timed.

    Interview Questions
    • Most difficult questions had to do with how you would deal with your boss during certain situations because they gave tricky answers that sounded very similar.   Answer Question

    Application Details

    I applied online – interviewed at Ann Taylor.

    Interview Details

    Applied online and then received a call about a week later. Was your typical interview, only about 15 min long. I thought the interview went alright, however I didn't think I was what they were looking for b/c I only could work for the summer. Interviewer said she would get back to me the next day with a decision. Well it has now been almost a month and I haven't heard anything--no email, no phone call, no letter, nothing. I find this very rude and disrespectful. I understand that not everyone is a good fit for the job, but at least have the decency to contact me and let me know that they weren't going to offer me a position.

    Interview Questions
    • Asked about previous experience, what i expect from my manager, if i was dependable, how i take criticism, etc. No real curve balls, but they did ask how I keep up on the latest fashion trends.   Answer Question
