    Application Details

    I applied in-person. The process took 2 daysinterviewed at Tilly's.

    Interview Details

    So I this is my first job, I went in the store, and filled out an application (they were in the open) and I had the interview 2 days ago, and got a phone call today, that I got the job. The interview was VERY laid back, and its in between talking with friends, and adult friends of your parents. It is a group interview, so always be the first one to answer the questions. You need to shine out compared to the other potential candidates

    Dress Code: Wear what you would wear to the store for a job, or what you would wear going out with friends. Guys: Skater jeans, some skate shoes (Nike, Adidas. You dont need to have these) T-Shirt with a brand they sell at the store. Girls: When I was there, these girls wore jeans, with converse, and a shirt with a jacket (In a guy, so I have no idea what they were wearing, but dress normally). Dont dress up nice, dress up like you would go to school, or hang out with friends

    Questions: 1)Introduce yourself
    2)Greatest accomplishment
    3) What does customer service mean to you?
    4) Shoplifting red-flags
    5) What does personal image mean to you
    6) does what you wear, represent who you are?
    7) Do you follow any fashion models

    Answers: 1) My name is "Bob Saget", I go to This highschool, and I am in these classes. I do these hobbies for fun, and hangout with friends.

    2) My greatest accomplishment would have to be this. I achieved this goal by doing this with the help of family and friends

    3) Customer service is a service in which the customer can feel comfortable. One where they would come back, because they know all their questions will be answered, and one they can tell others about.

    4) Large groups, big bags, looking at employees more than items for sale, looking for cameras, refusing help, Looking at the accessories, rapid movements, longer then normal dressing room times, asking stupid questions

    5) Personal image is what defines who you really are. What you wear contributes to what people think of you, whether it be a first impression, or a longstanding friendship.

    6) Yes. Your shoes, pants, shirts, and the accessories you wear can defiantly reflect on what kind of a person you are

    7) Im a guy, so I said no. I was the only guy there, and there were about 11 girls. Everybody laughed when I said no lol

    Finally they make you pick out an outfit for an occasion they pick (party, Christmas, mall trip, vacation, etc.) It may be for the opposite sex, it may not be. Mine was. If youre a guy picking out what a girl should wear, keep it simple. Look at some of the clothes Kate Upton or Demi Lavato wear (hot girls) If youre a girl picking out guys clothes, think of what you would want your boyfriend to wear. REMEMBER WHERE YOU GOT YOUR ITEMS, THEY WILL MAKE YOU PUT THEM BACK.

    Finally when everything is done, they will say "We will call you soon with an offer. If we dont call within 2 weeks, that pretty much means you didnt get the job. Feel free to apply again"

    I applied in-person. The process took 4 daysinterviewed at Tilly's in November 2014.

    Interview Details

    My interview was very chill and laid back. It was two of the girl managers interviewing a group of 5 of us in the back corner of the store. The managers were very nice and friendly. She started off the interview by going in a row saying our name and a cool thing about ourselves. Then she asked basic questions with scenarios. At the end of the interview we had to pick out and outfit for an occasion, my occasion was dinner and a movie, when we got our outfits together we had to sell them to the manager. After everything she said if they were interested in hiring one of us that we would hear back by tomorrow afternoon.

    Application Details

    I applied in-person. The process took a weekinterviewed at Tilly's in November 2014.

    Interview Details

    It was a group interview with 7 people. We were pulled into the back room. A lot of the people were wearing t-shirts and jeans. I felt almost over dressed. The interviewers were very friendly, and had an icebreaker question, which was "If you were an animal, what would you be." The whole process was overall very laid back, it felt like a casual conversation. The interviewers were the assistant manager and the store manager. The store manager asked the questions, while the assistant manager wrote down notes. After the questions, they grouped us into two's and we were to design an outfit based on the gender we were assigned. You have to make an effort to stand out, as some people remained silent, and didn't attempt to answer any questions. They said we would hear from them by next week.

    Interview Details

    Dropped off app in store and one of the managers asked me a few questions about the store (i.e.- What brands do they sell? What are some current trends for guys/girls? Why do i want to work here?), got an interview offer on the spot. Interviewed in a group setting, was told there was going to be about 10-12 people but the interview was 5 people including myself. Was a very laid back interview. Manager took us to the back corner of the store and we stood in a circle while he asked questions. Very non-interview style questions- Which celebrity couple would you like as your parents?, If you were stuck on an island what 3 items would you take?, Tell me a joke, etc.

    Interview Questions
    • Manager asked us to pick an outfit (girls chose a guys outfit and vice versa) for a vacation to Miami. He told us to keep in mind the weather, activities you might do, and to remember where we got the clothes because we would have to put them back!   Answer Question
