    Interview

    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.

    Application

    I applied online – interviewed at The Children's Place (Midwest City, OK) in November 2014.

    Interview

    -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.

    Interview Questions

    Negotiation

    There was none, she said she could only offer me $7.98/hr with no benefits, no commission, nothing else.

    Interview

    Quick and easy process/ I walked in a little late but they were quite patient. There are two managers so I had my first interview with the store manager and then right after his Assistant manager came in and asked me questions. They left the room to deliberate and then I got hired on the spot.

    Interview

    Manager called to set up an interview about two weeks after I applied. When I showed up the manager was not very friendly. She was kind of rude and acted like she was doing me some HUGE favor by interviewing me.

    Asked standard interview questions, really pushed the children's place credit card.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a dayinterviewed at The Children's Place in September 2014.

    Interview

    I came in for only one interview. She asked me what brought me to the area and why I applied, why I'd be good there and then asked what hours I'd be willing to work/how many hours and how much I was expecting. I told her I have previous experience with Children so it would be a good environment with me & that hours/wage didn't matter to me because it was mostly about the experience, for me.

    Interview Questions

    • The most difficult question for me was why I applied.   1 Answer

    Negotiation

    She asked me when I would be able to start, during the first initial interview. I said Monday. She said, "Okay, we start out at $8.15. You'll work about 16hrs. Dress code is jeans, close toed shoes, and a nice shirt" then put me into the computer with my social security number, told me when to come in for my first shift & told me about when I'd be paid & how.
