    Sales Associate Interview

    I interviewed online. The process took 1 week - interviewed at Papaya Clothing in April 2014.

    Interview Details

    I got a call for an interview on the weekend. I went in 20 minutes early just in case the manager asked me to pick out an outfit. Once it was time for my interview, it took an extra 15 minutes to begin because the manager had problems working the printer. After that she finally conducted the interview.

    She seemed genuinely surprised that I had no retail experience(though I've had other jobs) making it pretty obvious she didn't bother to look at my application/resume beforehand and called me because I applied. One thing things that surprised me was that her English wasn't very good and she had an accent. Though it didn't bother me since where I live there's a lot of people who's first language isn't English so you get use to it.

    We spent the next 20 minutes basically just talking about availability and a little bit about college, my current job, and my strengths. At the end she told me she couldn't ask me any more questions because I didn't have any retail experience and asked it I had any questions. She also told me she felt the interview went bad, not because of me, but because she couldn't speak English well. After I said goodbye she said she would call me by Monday if I got the job.

    It's now Monday and I'm currently waiting for a call, but I'm a bit doubtful since the interview was a bit unorganized and short.

    I interviewed in-person. The process took 3 days - interviewed at Papaya Clothing in April 2014.

    Interview Details

    I turned in my application and the next day I got a call for an interview. I came in 30 minutes early and the manager let us start the interview at that time. She took me to the back and asked me about my self, why did I want to work there?, and so on. She finished up by telling me about the dress code and hours of the store.

    I interviewed in-person. The process took 2 days - interviewed at Papaya Clothing in November 2012.

    Interview Details

    it was easy and very laid back. they don't offer much in paycheck. manager is pretty nice however, they don't call back and they play favoritism so if you don't have any friends working in the store already, just know that you will not be hired. the interview was a complete waste of time and energy.

    Interview Details

    There really wasn't anything to the interview. There weren't any questions asked. The manager just wanted to gossip during the interview. And after a pointless hour I was out of the builder with a job.

    Interview Details

    Applied online Monday and they called for an interview Thursday. Went to the interview the next day at 11:30 a.m. The interview was real relaxed and basically all the manager asked me was my availability, my means of transportation and have I ever worked at a clothing store which I did (Aeropostale). After that she told me that she would call within a couple of days letting me know if I was hired. Today (Monday) she called me and offered me the job and to come in for orientation tomorrow at noon.
