    Application Details

    I applied online - interviewed at J. Crew in August 2013.

    Interview Details

    I was contacted by a West Coast recruiter and interviewed over the phone. The questions were basic and pertained to the position I was applying.

    Interview Questions
    • I was taken aback at the unprofessional manner of the interviewer because she was talking to the people working on her home in between the questions posed to me. I felt like she was more interested in what was happening at her home than interviewing me. At one point she left the interview to attend to her workers.   Answer Question

    Application Details

    I applied in-person - interviewed at J. Crew.

    Interview Details

    First you take your application to the store in person. The store manager on site will ask you a few basic questions, like why you want to work there and what experience do you have. If they like you then they will call you in for an interview with the store director - that's Mark. Mark will ask questions about the store like "what is unique about J. Crew?" or "why do you want to work here instead of Banana Republic?"

    Interview Questions
    • "What would you do if a customer was extremely unhappy with a product and wanted a full refund, but was past the refund date?" The answer is, you take it back anyways. Customer Service is very important at J. Crew.   View Answer

    First, I filled out the generic application and handed it back to the store. Within a few days, I received a phone call asking to schedule an interview. The interview was casual and took place in the office of the store nearby me. The store manager conducted the interview and it was about 10-15 mins. She was very nice and friendly to me.
