    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took a week. I interviewed at Claire's Stores (Fairview Heights, IL) in October 2013.

    Interview

    The store manager called me and set up a interview and then when i arrived I found out it was a group interview, which i feel are TERRIBLE. But she went around the circle (About 6 girls) and asked the typical interview questions, why would you be a good fit, what would you do if this happened, etc. Then a few days later she called and said I had the job.

    Third Key Holder Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Declined Offer
    Neutral Experience
    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...
