    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeksinterviewed at Five Below (New Castle, DE).

    Interview

    Very disorganized. The recruiter who I dealt with flat out forgot to call me not once, but three times at our previously agreed upon time. When I finally spoke with her, and was invited to an in person interview on site, she was over 30 minutes late arriving. I had a second interview at the corporate headquarters that went a little smoother, but I was surprised that at the lack of depth the questions had. Finally had a third interview that was supposed to be with three individuals at the job site. After waiting in the lobby for 45 minutes, I finally met my first interviewer. No one seemed to stick the schedule they had, and I was shuffled to people who seemed to have no idea they were supposed to meet with me that day. At the end of the run around, I was told they were going to schedule the two missing people with me to speak via phone. Instead I received a generic email saying they are going to consider other candidates. After 3 interviews! Very unprofessional, and it is quite evident they are not very considerate of a candidate's time, or providing useful, professional feedback.

    Application

    I applied in-person – interviewed at Five Below (Turnersville, NJ) in October 2014.

    Interview

    So, I walked into the store, not really expecting anything, and asked if they were hiring. They told me "yes we are hiring just apply online and we are have on site interviews Monday 10-20-2014" (btw I came in on the previous Friday 10-17-2014.) So, I went to the on site interview, where they asked basic questions such as, "describe yourself" "what's your availability" and "if we asked your friends to describe you want would they say?"
    after the onsite interview, which was the 20th of October, I got a call back for a second interview scheduled for the 28th of October! Overall the second interview was just the main manager asking me the same question in my first interview, and giving me details of how the store is ran (uniform, schedules, time off, etc). Basically it was not a interview, it was more of a congratulations you got the job! At the end of that meeting the manager told to bring in my working papers for the upcoming Sunday which was orientation. Due to schedule problems, I had to reschedule to today, 11-09-2014. I have orientation today and will start working shortly!

    All in all, the interview process is a breeze! You just have to be yourself and be open and honest.
    Hopefully this helped!
