    I applied in-person. The process took a weekinterviewed at Charlotte Russe (Rockaway, NJ).

    Interview

    It was very quick and low-key. We didn't even go in the back office, we sat on the ledges where the display windows were. Manager just told me about the position and asked about my experience. I was hired on the spot.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1+ weekinterviewed at Charlotte Russe (Charleston, WV) in July 2015.

    Interview

    I applied online and about 5 days later I got an email saying I had an interview. I went in for the interview the next day. The interview was a group interview the first time around of 5 girls including me. We were asked simple questions like how would you deal with an irate customer and how we worked with other people at the previous job or at school. We talked like we had been friends for a long time. There was a lot of laughing and smiling. At the end we were told if we were going to have another interview we would be contacted within two days. Any time after that meant we weren't suit for the job. I got a call from the store manager and she told me to come in and that it would only take 15 minutes. I went in and she asked my availability and I got hired immediately after that. I start work next week.

    I applied in-person. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Charlotte Russe.

    Interview

    There was a two step interview process. I interviewed with a group of girls, the assistant manager interviewed us. It was how you would expect any group interview to go, but they expect you to show your personality amongst the others. The second interview was with the store manager, one on one. She was kind and as long as you made conversation as well as successfully answering the questions, you are golden!

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took a weekinterviewed at Charlotte Russe (Jacksonville, FL) in June 2015.

    Interview

    I applied in person, they told me it would be for a part time position and that they start at minimum wage. When I turned the application in they wrote my name down for a future interview. When I arrived it turned out to be a group interview, which was never mentioned by them. Only one other person showed up. We went in the back and talked to the assistant manager. She was extremely nice and asked us very easy questions. She'd answer them herself after us and had a discussion about the company and how nice it was to work there. Unfortunately they're only offering 9-12 hours a week and I am looking for something with more so I may not accept if I get a call.

    Interview

    Group interview. It was me and 2 other girls. One my age the other and older lady. The manager who interviewed us didn't seem to have a great interest on the older lady. The whole interview lasted about 15-20 mins. She wanted to hear about our personalities and what we were like outside of work.

    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.
