    Interview

    Very short and to the point. The manager was very friendly, and asked basic questions including "What are you strengths?" and "Tell me about a time you had a conflict with a coworker". The interview was only 15 minutes.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 6 weeksinterviewed at The Limited in January 2015.

    Interview

    I applied for an Assistant Manager position. They have a new process for management where you do three interviews. One with the store you applied to, the second with another store manager at their location and the last one with the district manager. I applied for the Assistant manager position online and AFTER the first interview was over the store manager told me she only had a lead sales position that would be available in a month or so. I was upset but said yes nonetheless. The store manager called me within a week to let me know I was scheduled for a second interview. Well on the day of the interview the store manager for that location was late. Once he got there he was completely unprepared for the interview and told me that he forgot I was coming. During the interview he brought up that the fact that he was gay and that his partner worked at another location in his old position. (UNPROFESSIONAL) The interview lasted maybe 15 min. The third interview was not with the DM but with another store manager (later found out that all three are good friends) and that one went better. If I have to be honest I was unsatisfied with the way that all three interviews went. They were all unprofessional, unorganized and not prepared!!

    Interview Questions

    • Why do you want to work for The Limited? Tell me a little about yourself? What was your annual number at previous location? How do you stay current in fashion? What was a difficult situation with a customer and how did you handle it? Where do you see yourself five years from now? What is your sense of style? These are just a few of the questions.   Answer Question

    Interview

    Applied online and got a call a week or so later for a next day interview. I showed up and after about(10 minutes of overview stuff like salary requirements and schedule availability) I was invited to orientation ( was not told I got the job yet) which was about 5 days later. Orientation lasted 3 hours alot of cramming but I tried to soak it all in. Was given my part time schedule after my first day.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at The Limited in December 2014.

    Interview

    Submitted my resume on Linkedin and heard from a recruiter less than a week afterward. Had about a half hour phone call with a recruiter just going over my resume and other relevant experience. A few days after, I was invited to come in for an interview where I met individually with 5 different people for about 45 minutes each. While it was a bit draining, it was nice to be able to customize my questions for different employees. Even though I didn't get an offer, I was impressed with how prompt the process was and how pleasant everyone was to deal with.

    Interview Questions

    • Nothing very difficult. Lots of questions about personal background and experience. The only sort of technical question I was asked was how I handle outliers.   Answer Question

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at The Limited.

    Interview

    I had a telephone interview and then a face to face interview with the dm. Afterward I also had an interview with the SM I would be working at. They were very interested in how I drive the KPI's. I also had to apply on line which consisted of a timed math test and a untimed personality survey. The process took about an hour and a half. I was told it would only take a half hour. Way off base there.

    Interview Questions

    Negotiation

    No negotiating on their part. They were firm in their offer, but I feel it was a fair offer.

    Interview

    I applied online, got a call the next week. I went in for an interview, which was more like a relaxed conversation about me. During the interview, we went outside into the mall area and sat on the couches. The manager was very friendly and relaxed, and I was comfortable talking about my past experience.

    Interview Questions

    • It was all very relaxed, no question was difficult to answer. They mostly wanted to know about my customer service background. They did ask me to put together an outfit in the store.   Answer Question
