    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at Plato's Closet.

    Interview

    I printed off the application they had online and turned it in in person. I received a call 2-3 months later to come in for an interview. The interview took place in the back and was very relaxed and chill. We talk about my application, my previous work experience, and my availability. I was hired during the interview and the manager explained to me some key points about the job such as the dress code, perks, raises, etc.

    Interview

    They were super nice in store. I came with a filled out application and resume, they claimed they'd get back to me by the end of the week. I never heard back from them at all. It was disappointing to say the least.

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Plato's Closet (Escondido, CA).

    Interview

    Turned in my application in person (before they created the online application). Had me fill out a random quiz which got me a little uncertain where it was going. The quiz included grammar questions, history questions, questions about fashion and brands, and about Plato's Closet itself. Called for a group interview a week later. Asked me to make a collage that resembled my style and what Platos Closet means/what I think it means to work there. The collage was really fun!!! In the group interview ( had 7 girls) we first filled out a piece of paper with our availability and then chose our seat for the interview. The two owners of this specific platos closet were there asking us the questions, along with an assistant manager and two team leads. They first had us present our collages in 60 seconds. Then we answered questions of popular brands, and the typical interview questions. The end was a fun last "question." We had to go throughout the store (in ten-fifteen minutes, i dont remember how many) and create 3 outfits. 1. an 18 year old girl on a night date. 2. a sophomore boy first day of school. and a freshman girls first day of school. Make sure your outfits have 6 pieces each, otherwise they aren't considered a full outfit. Got called back the next evening giving me the job!

    Interview Questions

    • Not difficult questions. Asked for popular girl brands (hollister, charlotte russe, forever 21, american eagle) and guy brands (vans, obey, levi's, etc). Also to provide a time you were given great customer service. describe a time you were given bad customer service. Have you shopped at plato's closet before? Have you sold to plato's closet? What is one good quality you have, etcetc   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    No negotiation. Wage is minimum. It was my first job.

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took a dayinterviewed at Plato's Closet (Rochester, NY).

    Interview

    After submitting an application in person, I was called a week after to come in for a face-to-face interview. The interview was taken place in the back room where all the extra clothes and storage was. The supervisor asked questions about my personal life, family, schooling and where I plan to go to college in the future. She asked if I had experience with sales before. She asked if I had experienced unhappy customers and how I handled it, as well as if i have experience shoplifting, I had not at that point so she asked how I would handle it at Plato's closet.

    Interview Questions

    • The most difficult question was the shopping lifting question because there are so many legalities involved, and because I never experienced shoplifting before I was nervous and did not know how to answer the question thinking with the legal aspects in mind.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    No negotiation, just told that there was room to move up to "buyer" and "open and closer" which was more pay.
