Assistant Manager Interview
I applied online. The process took 2+ weeks – interviewed at Banana Republic.
I applied online and was initially contacted by a recruiter and went through a phone screen, set up with a GM interview, interviewed with the DM, and they made a decision from there. The process took about 2 1/2 weeks, just because I am already working full time and needed to find the time to meet with the GM and would miss phone calls from the recruiter.
- No difficult questions really, just make sure you prep yourself just like you would for any interview. The questions are pretty standard. Answer Question
Reasons for Declining
I declined because the pay was only $0.50 difference from what I was making and the volume of the store was 3x as much as where I was already working. There was no room for negotiation.

I applied through a recruiter – interviewed at Banana Republic (Sevierville, TN) in July 2013.
Well I applied online for the position and received an e-mail from the recruiter wanting to know if I would be interested in scheduling a phone interview with her. Of course I said yes, given the fact I was looking for employment. We set it up for the following Wednesday at 11 am. When that day and time came, I hadn't gotten any phone call. I waited 10 minutes because I wasn't sure if she was running behind schedule with other phone interviews, and then decided to call her. She didn't answer so I left her a message to call me back, and still haven't heard from her since. It is quite apparent that they desperately need more qualified and professional individuals working for their company.

I applied through other source. The process took 3 days – interviewed at Banana Republic (Leesburg, VA) in June 2012.
It was very personal and behavorial. What did I expect from the company, what did I have to offer, how would I handle situations, how would I balance workload and customer service while leading a team. I felt very much at ease and relaxed. The interviewer not only ensured that I was what the company needed but that I would be set up for sucess.
There was no negotiation.

It wasn't difficult but it was long and you go through several different people for multiple interviews.

I applied online. The process took 4 weeks – interviewed at Banana Republic in March 2009.
Started with an HR recruiter, she asked the standard interview questions. It took about an hour. She then told me about a few opportunities and set me up with the department manager. The Department Manager interviewed me, again about an hour, standard questions - why do you want the position, tell me about your experience, etc. Finally I interviewed with the District Manager who again, didn't ask anything too crazy.

I didn't really negotiate, they asked what I made previously and offered me more than that.
