    Application Details

    I applied in-person. The process took 2 daysinterviewed at New York & Company.

    Interview Details

    I applied in person on Sunday and had an interview today Monday. It took 20 minutes for the HR manager to come out and greet me but I didn't mind. The interview took place towards the front of the store and we were on either side of a wheelie table. I felt relaxed thanks to the music playing and the store's environment. The manager had me fill out a few questions while she took care of some issues going on so it took pressure off of me.

    UPDATE: got the job

    I applied in-person. The process took a weekinterviewed at New York & Company.

    Interview Details

    I walked in and dropped off an application. I was immediately set up with an interview. We sat on a couch in the mall. It was a fairly relaxed atmosphere. The manager was very nice and asked me standard interview questions: "Why NY&C", "What could you bring to the team", "Why should I hire you". At the end of the interview the manager said I would be contacted in 2-3 days. I never hear back. I called back on the 5th day just to check the status and was told they were still talking amongst themselves and would call by the end of the week. I never heard back.

    I applied through other source. The process took a weekinterviewed at New York & Company.

    Interview Details

    It was a pretty easy interview. They ask typical sales associate interview questions. Nothing too crazy or difficult. They ask about your background, your experience in retail and in other fields and why you want to work there. It took only one interview with the store manager. It's part-time so be ready they don't give you many hours. You will need another job too.

    I applied through an employee referral – interviewed at New York & Company in August 2014.

    Interview was extremely basic. Questions were asked such as 'Name a time in which you experienced great customer service' or 'What would you do in this situation (saw someone stealing from the store, unruly customers, etc.)' It was a group interview as well, so be prepared in case you have to go against any other interviewees.
