    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at Claire's Stores in July 2015.

    Interview

    First I interviewed with the assistant manager at the front counter, and she asked me some general personality questions. She also asked me about different scenarios, and asked me to greet and help someone in the store. While interviewing, she checked people out at the cash register, and also answered the phone. About 20 minutes into my interview the manager came into the store, and decided to talk to me as well. We left the store and walked around another store close by as she asked me similar questions the assistant manager had. Somewhat awkward experience...

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took a week. I interviewed at Claire's Stores (Norridge, IL) in May 2015.

    Interview

    I met with the store manager, they went over my references pretty steady hiring pace. Kind of took a while to hear back. I was applying at Icing but then they sent my application to Claire's, so I had two different interviews with both store managers.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Claire's Stores.

    Interview

    The interview is very easy and straight to the point. Most of it was the manager explaining the position and required responsibilities. Since I had previously worked for the company when I was in high school, the manager just asked me about the store I worked for. I was asked about the store size, the average daily sales, store volume, and if I had pierced ears.

    Interview Questions

    • Would you have a problem piercing ears? Piercing is required for all Claire's positions, full time, part time, sales associates to district managers.   Answer Question
    • Q: What was one thing that they asked you?   1 Answer

    I applied in-person. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Claire's Stores.

    Interview

    The interview process is very typical and simple. If you've ever been hired for a part-time or retail position then you'll pass with flying colors. They ask you simple questions about theft (internal and external), customer service, and sales.
