    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 2 daysinterviewed at Charlotte Russe (Roanoke, VA).

    Interview

    I interviewed with a current manager at the time who worked there 4-5 yrs. (she left a year after I was hired) she was my most pleasant and professional experience there. The interview had normal retail scenario questions, what would you do- not do, etc. She kept a conversation with me outside of interview questions but maintained composure. It was a great interview.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 daysinterviewed at Charlotte Russe (San Francisco, CA) in March 2015.

    Interview

    Submitted application via LinkedIn. Went through an initial phone screen with hiring manager, followed by an on site interview with two assistant marketing managers. Interview was conducted by the fitting and show rooms with racks and racks of new collections. Managers seemed very serious, went straight to the point, and provided insightful answers at the end of the interview. It was a very "The Devil Wears Prada" experience and overall very cool and inspiring!

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online – interviewed at Charlotte Russe.

    Interview

    Sent resume to District Manager in answer to online job listing. Didn't hear anything, so sent resume through corporate website as well and was called for an interview almost immediately.
    Interviewer was late and had me confused with another girl she was to interview later.
    Otherwise thought the interview went well on my part and I left confident that I would at least be in the running for Assistant Manager even if I didn't get the SM position.
    Never heard anything at all back from anyone.
