    Interview

    I went throughout the mall asking what stores were hiring. Deb was and I applied in the store that day. It was easy considering I had no prior employment history. Three days later I was called back for an interview. Two days after the call was the interview. It was one on one with the manager. Took about 25 minutes. The mood was very friendly and comfortable. 5 days after the interview I was called back and offered a position.

    Interview

    Get app and turn it in to the Store Manager. If you meet what they're looking for, they'll call you. When you come in for the interview, you'll be told ahead of time if it's 1:1 or a group. Basic questions: Why do you want to work for Deb? What would you do if you saw someone stealing? How do you deal with difficult customers? Basic Retail questions. If you pass through that, you'll take the Orion. If you pass that, the store gets an email saying if you passed/failed. If you pass, they call your references. If they say good things, you get hired!

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Deb Shops (Albany, NY) in April 2013.

    Interview

    It was pleasant as far as interviewing goes. I submitted my application and called back about a week later and they said they would review it and I received a call about 3 days later. Then the interview was scheduled and it was very rapid fire once I got there because it was done on the sales floor because the manager on was the only one there at the time. She asked me a few questions about my application and why I wanted to work there and then a few questions about fashion and then that was it. I was hired on the spot and went back and did my hiring paperwork a few days later.
