    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Le Château in April 2014.

    Interview Details

    First interview was with the Product Manager and involved a series of questions, getting to know me, and then a Style Challenge where I was asked to create three full outfit looks (clothes, shoes, accessories) for one person (mine were Everyday, Career, and Formal) in about 15 minutes using items from around the store. She reviewed my looks and allowed me to explain them and then she provided feedback on how they thought I did. The Assistant Manager also came by to provide feedback.
    Second interview was with the District Manager/Store Manager. Another time for her to get to know me and ask a series of questions. The first interview was a bit more casual, this one had some more involved questions relating more to situations and how I would handle them.
    After this I was called and told I was hired and asked to come in for orientation at a later date and to discuss scheduling.

    Asked a lot about fashion and past jobs. Eg. What influences your personal style? How do you ensure you complete all tasks on time?

    Application Details

    I applied online - interviewed at Le Château.

    Interview Details

    I had two interviews: the first in person than the phone interview. Due to company complicated organizational structure the person who interviewed me was not related to my department within the company hierarchy. The person who interviewed me on the phone rarely saw me during my employment.
