    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1+ weekinterviewed at Dress Barn (Succasunna, NJ) in July 2015.

    Interview

    I applied for the job on Indeed because they had a position posted on there. The bad thing is that when I went for the interview the person doing the interview said they did not actually have any open positions at the moment. I don't know why they are advertising for jobs they don't have.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a weekinterviewed at Dress Barn (Clearwater, FL) in June 2015.

    Interview

    I applied online and received a call back about 5 days later to schedule an interview. I went in the next day and met with the super sweet manager, then the assistant manager. Both were very kind. They had trouble coming up with questions as this is my first job, but were extremely personable. I was hired on the spot. Knowing the history of the company as well as having a list of at least two references with me impressed them, and played a major role in getting hired.

    Interview Questions

    Negotiation

    I did not negotiate since it is my first job, but was offered well above minimum wage. Know the company history, smile and you will do fine.

    Declined Offer
    Negative Experience

    Application

    I applied online – interviewed at Dress Barn.

    Interview

    I interviewed 3 times with this company. Once was with one department who shot me down even though I was experienced and they have had the position opened for months! I think the manager just wasn't happy with anything. The second interview was for a different position. It went great and I was called back. I was very excited. The second interview went great as well, the only thing was that they refused to negotiate pay! I was taken on a tour and I was given all the information. The office is AMAZING! So beautiful and the company really cares about the employees. However, I was told I would receive a call back and never did. I had to call several times to hear back and when I did, I was told that the position was given internally but they were finding something else. That never happened and I didn't hear back until months later. They reached out asking if I would like the job now since the internal candidate resigned already. I said no.

    Reasons for Declining

    I declined after I was asked months later. At that point, why would I want to go somewhere that didn't want to hire me in the first place? Sometimes internal candidates are not better!
