    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took a weekinterviewed at Rainbow USA (Valley Stream, NY) in June 2015.

    Interview

    I walked in and got an application by another sale associate. I went the next day to hand it back in and ended up meeting the district manager who told me to go in the next day for an interview. She mostly asked me about my availability and working experience. I waited a few days and went back to the store where I was told that I did get the job.

    Assistant Manager Interview

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online – interviewed at Rainbow USA.

    Interview

    I was called by the district manager to come into a nearby store to fill out a application. Once I finished I was told by the manager they will need to run my background and I shall receive a call to be interviewed. A week passed and I still have not heard anything so I called and found out the person that was suppose to interview me was on vacation. I gave up, then so happened to get a call to come in for a interview. I met with the district manager. During the interview she looked through my application and told me that I didn't have a lot of experience working in a apparel setting. That was correct but I do have years of management experience. She then asked me what position was I applying for which was odd to me because she pulled my application and called me in for this interview. I was asked how old I was which is a illegal question. She told me shevwill have to go over my qualifications with her boss becsuse usually her boss will not even consider me for the assistant manager position. Once again it was odd because if you felt that way why did you pull my application, waste my time and have me go out of my way for this interview. She lied to me and said I will be scheduled to interview with her boss and I never got a call back.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person – interviewed at Rainbow USA.

    Interview

    I was called 2 days prior to my interview to come in. On the day of my interview I arrived 10 minutes early to find out that the person who was supposed to interview me was on her lunch break for the next 30 mins. When I finally was interviewed it lasted all of 5 minutes, most likely because my interviewer had only been with the company for 3 weeks and barely knew about the company herself. the interview took place in between two racks of clothing on the store floor. I wasn't asked a single question just shown the ropes of the job to which the interviewer said, " seems simple enough right? The store manager will call you tomorrow for your hours and availability"

The regional calls and asks questions ( the regional has your application in her hand, so know where you worked and when you worked there. Remember the answers you gave the district manager because the regional has your answers. It's a very relaxed conversation ( like talking to a friend ) after the regional has spoken to ALL the candidates then the decision is made on who gets the job. The DM will call you with a salary offer, this company does not haggle. You get what they offer or the position goes to the 2nd choice.** Be nicely dressed, no piercings or visible tattoos.
