    Application

    I applied online – interviewed at Chico's FAS.

    Interview

    Relaxed but thorough. Met with various levels of the company from Manager to VP to President as well as employees outside of the department I was interviewing for. Everyone was great about working around my schedule because at the time I was working. The experience was wonderful - not only did they interview me but I got a pretty good 360 on the organization and the type of people that worked there. Luckily, they were the type of organization I wanted to be a part of.

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter – interviewed at Chico's FAS.

    Interview

    Very undecided when it comes to hiring decisions. I've been contacted by Chico's 2 times in the past year and a half. Have had various phone conversations with the hiring manager. Went in for an in-person interview both times. They took a very long time to get back to me both times, to be told the first time that I'm overqualified and the second time they changed their minds saying that the on-boarding process would take too long and were going to search internally (after completing their skills project).

    Interview

    It was very easy. Manager made me feel instantly comfortable. Manager was very friendly. She was the most interested in how I come across more than what my experience was in retail. It didn't matter that I had no prior experience in retail, not in the past 30 years, anyway.

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Chico's FAS.

    Interview

    When I came aboard it was a face to face process. Presently, the application process is more difficult than the interview process. It goes through an assessment before an actual interview. I still believe a face to face interview is more effective. I have witnessed some people that did exceptionally well during the assessment process, but resulted in a waist of time and energy.

    Negotiation

    Was offered a low pay rate, but enticed into coming aboard due to the possibility of bonuses especially when goals were convinced to be obtainable since there was a great balance between customer/operations focus.

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3+ weeksinterviewed at Chico's FAS.

    Interview

    The interview focused on the job and what it entailed. I found I did have a great amount of detail to work with and could focus on the skill set they were looking for without guessing what they were looking for. The interview was 30 minutes. The manager was nice and interviewed professionally and in the traditional style without odd / awkward questions like looking for "weakness" answers. I think they tend to interview quite a few candidates prior to selecting you for hire. The hiring process was long as I had to wait to start for 2.5 weeks and was immediately available.

    Interview Questions
