    Interview Details

    The assistant manager was very nice. Really laid back normal interview. No crazy questions. It was more like a conversation if anything. The general manager was very rude and unprofessional. She said she would be in contact with me by Saturday the 8th to let me know if I got it or not.

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Midwest City, OK
    Application Details

    I applied online – interviewed at The Children's Place in November 2014.

    Interview Details

    -All online application, extremely time consuming.

    -Recieved initial phone call for interview several weeks after completing application.

    -Was a group interview, I had been expecting one on one (I was not informed otherwise).

    -Initial interview was very casual, I thought I was locked in until at the last minute she said there would be a second interview (would have been nice if she had explained that in the beginning).

    -Second interview was a one on one, also casual but touched on more relevant topics and typical questions.

    -Wasn't "officially" offered employment until the following week.
