    I applied online – interviewed at New York & Company.

    Interview

    The hiring process was pretty quick. I had applied on a Tuesday and was called on Thursday for an interview on Monday. After the initial interview, I had an interview with another manager the same day. Then I was scheduled for an interview with the general manager, and I got the job on the spot.

    I applied online – interviewed at New York & Company.

    Interview

    Process was pretty simple! Applied online and got called in for an interview about 2 weeks later. It was a group interview with 2 managers that lasted about an hour or so. Then recieve a follow up call 4 days later.Do your research on the company prior to interview, as well think of different scenarios you could be placed in. Smile alot , and dress professional yet trendy.

    Interview Questions

    • None of the questions were unexpected. Some of them were:
      Tell me abour yourself.
      How well do you work under pressure on a scale of 1-10? And why?
      What does customer service mean to you?
      Would you say your an dependent or independent worker?
      Are you comfortable being in control?
      ALSO, alot of scenario base questions were given ex: If you saw a coworker doing something against company policy, what would you do?

      At the end of the interview, managers asked if we had any questions for them. (So be sure to have at least one ready). I recommend asking what will be the next step in this process. Good luck :)

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took a weekinterviewed at New York & Company.

    Interview

    1 interview, was a very good fit so it was lengthy and positive. Questions were straight forward, and I heard back the same day. The office was very cluttered, which should have told me something about the workload.

    Interview Questions

    Negotiation

    I was told the pay scale was consistent for each level, which I later found was incorrect. Negotiate!

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 3+ monthsinterviewed at New York & Company.

    Interview

    Interviewing process is a joke, DM only discusses negative things about the company and how store runs. Only asks you negative questions and if you refuse to answer negatively they keep asking the same questions 5 different ways. I had 3 managers interview me and only one was able to convince me that, that location was heading in a new direction and that she was grateful to have someone with a positive outlook on the store.

    Interview Questions

    • "So.. why are you quitting your job?"

      The worst part was the really long, awkward silence and rude staring between each question.
       
      Answer Question

    Negotiation

    There was none.

    I applied in-person. The process took 2 daysinterviewed at New York & Company (Houston, TX).

    Interview

    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
