    Application

    I applied online. The process took a weekinterviewed at Garage (Willow Grove, PA) in June 2010.

    Interview

    I filled out an application on their website, they called be back within about a week, maybe two weeks. I had to go in for a questionnaire, mainly consisting of situational questions, all which had to be completed in 30 minutes; I could not make it the original day that they wanted me to come, they were lenient with allowing me to reschedule. I was called back a couple of days after their estimated date of when they were going to let me know. When you go in for the interview, some advice would be to take a good look at their clothes, they will definitely ask you questions, which knowing their style will help. Most of the questions were about basic retail. You might be asked to sell an item on you, some even have to put together an outfit with their clothes, to sell to whoever is interviewing them. After the interview, the assistant manager, who was the one that I was interviewed by, seemed more laid-back, than she did in the interview. I heard back a bit later than when I was told that they would call me.

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 1 dayinterviewed at Garage (Miami, FL) in May 2010.

    Interview

    This is a clothing company originally from Canada but is now coming to the United States and I applied to a new one opening in my state through a job fair. It was fairly easy all I had to do was pick up an application, fill it out, give it back and then waited a minute to be interviewed by someone. The girl who interviewed me was super nice and was the co-manager of the store (i guess they have that even though it's not even opened yet) but the interview questions were basic, she asked about my previous experience, what is my biggest accomplishment and how would i describe good customer service and a few more questions along those lines. It's been almost a month and i have not recieved a call from them but the store is not even opened yet still so i'm still hoping to get the call.

    The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Garage (Paramus, NJ) in August 2009.

    Interview

    GARAGE CLOTHING is weird in that the hiring process takes place on the clothing floor itself. The interview was inturupted by customers and she couldnt hear e because of the music. Overall the place was like the uglier cousin of A&F and i was way overdressed compared to the uggs and flannel the people on the floor were wearing. If you want to get hired just work in that your neat, you can sell, and you are always on time.

    I applied in-person. The process took 3+ monthsinterviewed at Garage.

    Interview

    Went in-store to apply. The manager scheduled me in for an interview the following week. When we went to the store and told us we were there for our interview, she did not even remember we had an interview and looked like she could not even remember who we were. She was not well prepared and forgot our resumes and references at the store when we went to the food court for the interview. We finished the interview and then had to fill out applications. She told us we were hired and just had to send the applications to head office and would call us after the Christmas break to start working the week after New Years. Waited for three weeks for a call and did not hear anything, so decided to call. I was told the forms still had to come back but it was just because "head office was closed for Christmas". I thought nothing of it and let it go a few more weeks before calling again, when I could not reach the manager that interviewed me. I was told that she had just left early and was "going on vacation" for the next week or two. I explained my situation to the girl on the phone and she allowed me to give a message to the store manager, and told me she would call back within the week to let me know what was happening. The week passed with no call, and I decided to just forget about it. I was quite annoyed that the manager told me that I was hired, I even went out and got a few items of clothing from the store so I had something to wear to work. I think it was absolutely ridiculous that she allowed me to believe I was getting a job. I stopped looking for jobs and probably could have gotten another one if it was not for her. A few weeks later, I learned that a few people from school had actually gotten "let go" because they had too many workers! It was a terrible experience and very unprofessional.
