    I applied in-person. The process took 1 week - interviewed at Body Central in August 2014.

    Interview Details

    I was asked to do an online survey since it was a part of the interview process. I called the store manager back to make sure she knew I finished my results so that she could check over them. I get a call back the day of my interview and she tells me that I failed the online survey and because I didn't pass I wasn't able to follow through with the actual interview because it's a store/company policy.

    Senior Level Corporate Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 months - interviewed at Body Central.

    Interview Details

    The employees I spoke with seemed to have very different ideas about who Body Central is and what the strategic direction was for the future. There was a very obvious lack of cohesion amongst the senior team and it was apparent they had no idea. No one seemed particularly excited about being there or what the future had in store. All the questions I asked were met with very vague, ambiguous responses. When I inquired about the recent quarterly earnings, most all responses were squarely placing the blame on their predecessors with absolutely no insight or future solution. Not at all what I would have expected.

    I applied in-person. The process took 1 week - interviewed at Body Central in February 2014.

    Interview Details

    went to the mall with the intention of applying everywhere haha, but Body Central was one of the first store's I actually went to because I really love the clothes and atmosphere. I walked in, went to the register, and just asked if they had any job applications. Luckily, the person I asked was actually the store manager and she quickly got me one and told me that she was holding interviews later that day. She told me if I was able to stay around, I could get a job on the spot.

    Assistant Manager Interview

    Application Details

    I applied in-person. The process took 1 week - interviewed at Body Central in April 2011.

    Interview Details

    I had to interview with the District Manager. We scheduled a day and time that she would be in town to meet at the store. On the day of, she called me a few hours before our scheduled time and asked me to come in for the interview as soon as I could. When I got there, I handed her my resume, she awkwardly laughed and set it to the side without even reading it. She asked me some typical interview questions and answered her phone four times during the interview. It lasted for about 30 minutes before she offered me the job. I got the feeling that she has seen so many assistant managers come and go that she did not take the interview seriously.
