    Walked in with an application and got an interview right away. As it turned out they are always desperate to hire there. After speaking with the manager on the phone I had an interview scheduled for the coming week. The whole process went smooth. I got a call back saying I was hired within 2 weeks.

    Negotiation Details
    It was pleasant due to the fact that it was a good click with the current hiring manager.

    Application Details

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

    Interview Details

    I submitted an application with my resume. Submitted an online assessment. Interviewed with store manager and DM. DM conducted interview. Hired the following week.

    Interview Questions
    • The online assessment, although having only two or three questions, provides an accurate personality profile. The DM, knowing how to interpret the results, immediately addressed every topic I would not have wanted to discuss at all at the interview! We got all the issues out on the table & discussed them - and I was hired.   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    I was made an offer that was a little more than my previous hourly pay, plus the opportunity to earn bonuses. Additionally, it was agreed I would be groomed for promotion. I accepted.

    Application Details

    The process took 2 daysinterviewed at Chico's FAS in January 2012.

    Interview Details

    Was first interviewed by phone which was preliminary to see if I am even qualified for job and to see if I actually have an interest in how job sounded to me.
    In-person interview took place in a stockroom in store. Taken on tour of a very busy location. Job description made it sound as if I would be making lots of money with commission structure. It all sounded like it could be somewhat lucrative until I went to a few stores to do my due diligence and speak to a couple of people in the same position.

    Interview Questions
    • Not really asked any difficult questions. The question asked that might be considered "difficult" is to Name your strengths and weaknesses.   Answer Question
    Reasons for Declining

    When doing due diligence and upon closer questioning I realized there was no way to make sales goals with the workload of paperwork that this position required and that for $11.00 an hour I would be buried alive in administrative tasks with no time to connect with the consumer to make any sales. Also when I spoke to manager of the store I was considering working in I did not like her attitude she seemed angry and negative. As it turned out she resigned not long after my declining the opportunity.

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeksinterviewed at Chico's FAS in January 2011.

    Interview Details

    Applied online and waited, and waited. Eventually was contacted for one on one interview. They seemed to like me so I expected to be called back within the week as I was told. It took six weeks to be interviewed again, this time by a training manager.

    Interview Questions
    Negotiation Details
    Was told they could give me the hourly wage I asked for but it didn't turn out that way. Needed the job, so accepted the lower hourly wage expecting to be able to make up the difference with bonuses.
