    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Catherines (Port St Lucie, FL) in September 2014.

    Interview

    Initial short interview with the current store manager or assistant manager, I was given a phone interview with another manager in the region but I do not believe that is very common considering another employee who was offered the sister position to mine did not have one. Finally an in-person interview with the store manager and the district manager. Relatively short process, getting all the paperwork filed was the bigger issue.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online – interviewed at Catherines in November 2013.

    Interview

    The hiring process/interview was beyond easy. I applied for the job via the online application and was contacted about a week (or less) after the application. I went in for the interview and the manager hired me right on the spot. The only issues I had came with the online paper work afterwards. My birthday was entered wrong and I had to complete the ENTIRE thing over again as well as it was just incredibly long.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Catherines (Little Rock, AR) in November 2013.

    Interview

    It was very conversation like. We discussed why I wanted to work there, past experience, fashion sense, my hobbies, family life, what I love about retail, etc. She was very pleasant at this time. She came across as very family oriented, personable and kind. I suggest dressing fashionably as this will definitely be liked at during the interview. Accessorize as much as possible. Having nine articles of clothing and accessories is important.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 1+ weekinterviewed at Catherines in May 2013.

    Interview

    Since Catherines at the time did not accept online applications, I printed one off and went into the store. I handed it to the assistant manager, since the manager was off that day. I got a phone call about 4 days later to come in for an interview the following Thursday. The interview was extremely quick and basic - "why do you want to work here?" "what is your availability like?" I was only asked 3 questions.

    Negotiation

    No negotiation - I was called 3 days later, offered the job at minimum wage.

    Interview

    Relatively simple. I submitted an application and resume in store and was called for an interview. The interview was short; I was asked why I wanted to work there and what I thought I could contribute.

    Interview Questions

    • As Catherines is a store for plus sizes, and I do not shop there, I was asked if I thought I'd be comfortable with comments from customers about how I'm not a plus sized woman.   1 Answer

    Negotiation

    I did not negotiate. As a broke college student in a town where too many people needed jobs, I didn't have much room to argue.
