    Part-Time Sales Associate Interview

    Application Details

    I applied in-person. The process took 3 days - interviewed at Dress Barn in May 2012.

    Interview Details

    Getting hired here wasn't too bad for me. I applied after going in to meet one of the assistant managers and befriended her quickly. Which meant she later vouched for me. After that I posted a resume up on Dressbarn.com and later that same day got a call in for an interview. The manager was a bit hard to talk with but I did love the environment and that night got a job.

    Interview Details

    I was contacted immediately for an interview, however, the store that I interviewed for did not have any openings. Later I find an ad for another store so I followed up and got a second interview at the second location where I was ultimately hired.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Dress Barn.

    Interview Details

    The interview process was very extensive. There were really 3 rounds including a 2 tier computer test, a sit down interview, and 2 rounds of interviews on the floor with 2 members of management. I was essentially told I had the job, but had to wait until all these steps were completed and my 3 references had all been contacted.

    Interview Questions
    • I was asked what I would do if someone tried to rob the store. I understand this is important, but I was unsure how to answer because I assumed there would be a protocol put in place by the company that I would be taught later.   Answer Question
