Very Difficult Interview

Sales Associate Interview

Sales Associate
Houston, TX

I applied in-person and the process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at Charlotte Russe in January 2012.

Interview Details – I walked in ten minutes early and was asked to wait for the other girls. It was 3 more girls and 1 guy. We walked outside of the store into some couches which I thought it was very weird. He asked the WEIRDEST questions that had NOTHING to do with the store. I disliked everything about the interview, I will NEVER apply at Charlotte Russe.

Assistant Manager Interview

Assistant Manager
San Marcos, TX

I applied in-person and the process took 2 days - interviewed at Charlotte Russe in October 2010.

Interview Details – My former district manager had mentioned that Charlotte Russe was looking for managers so I contacted the district manager to show my interest and to set up an interview. I had two one on one interviews, first with the district manager, the second with another store manager. The first interview was on a bench outside the store in the mall. I was in a button down shirt and nice slacks and felt a little over dressed since the district manager was wearing leggings and a longer shirt. My second interview was in the office of the second store I interviewed at and again on ky sweater and nice slacks was dressed up more than the store manager who was wearing jeans, a tshirt and vest. From both interviews I got the idea that the company was starting a new, positive direction and that they were focused but pretty casual in their style.

Interview Question – How do you think you would adjust to working in a lower position that you are currently in?   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – I was able to negotiate my salary and was able to get the number I was asking for. I had previous experience above the position I was applying for and the plan was for me to advance to my own store within a few months, so I had good reason for getting what I asked for.

Sales Associate Interview

Sales Associate
Hattiesburg, MS

I applied in-person and the process took 4 days - interviewed at Charlotte Russe in May 2011.

Interview Details – I filled out an application in person in the store. I received a call about doing an interview a few days later.

I showed up at the interview for 9 a.m. that morning. There were about 3 or 4 other girls waiting to be interviewed at the same time. We were waiting and 15 min went by then 30, then 45... No one showed up until about 9:45 and it was the store manager. Apparently the assistant manager was supposed to be there to interview us but overslept or whatever. I was already unimpressed but wanted to go through with the interview because I already waited.

The store manager interviewed us all at one time. We were just asked basic questions about fashion, customer service, etc . We also had to pick out an outfit for a girl's birthday and explain why we chose that outfit. The interview probably lasted about an hour. I was called back the same night being asked to come in the next day. I came in the next day and he said that he had contacted my references and that I was highly recommended. He asked me a few last questions and offered me a job. I accepted.
