Interview

Applied on a Friday online and got a call for an interview the beginning of the following week. Group interview with 2 other candidates on Sunday. The interview took place in the backroom of the store. Had an interview with a sales lead and then with the store manager. They were very personable and easy to talk to. Both asked same questions basically. Took turns rotating answering first so no one had to start every time. Very relaxed and comfortable.

    I applied online. The process took 4 daysinterviewed at The Children's Place (Lithonia, GA).

    Interview

    It was a group interview in the back of the store. It was just your basic questions about why you want to work there and what would you do with a difficult customer. I thought I did well during the group interview and they said they were very impressed with me so I thought I had a good chance getting the job. However they never called back so I guess they had a change of heart. I'm fine with that because I did get a offer elsewhere for 3 times the money. FYI. As a sales associate you start off at minimum wage and the most hours you would work is 15 hours a week but on average 4-10 hours.

    Interview

    I applied online and received a call the next week. The following week I went in for a group interview with the assistant manager, along with three other applicants. The questions were basic, nothing difficult. I got a call back at the end of the week to schedule a 1-on-1 with the manager. It was really laid back, didn't take too long, average questions to get a feel for my personality and work ethic. She offered me the job on the spot, and I start next week.

    Interview

    Laid back. Easiest interview I've ever done. The managers were very easy to talk to, young, and funny. The interview was held in the back room where clothes and accessories were stored; not an office. However, there were chairs and a small table with a computer in the back corner of the storage room. Seems to be a drama-free atmosphere.
