    Sales Associate Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

    I applied in-person. The process took 3 weeks - interviewed at dELiA*s.

    Interview Details

    For my seasonal position I was called back after submitting an application and invited to a group interview in a couple days. When I got there it was me and about 4 other girls, the manager, and one of her senior employees. They asked a lot of questions like our opinions on giving friends discounts, asking a coworker to clock us in when we're not at work yet, our hobbies, what we think "Delia" would be like, things like that. The questions weren't very difficult, they were basically questions determining what kind of employee you would be and what your personality was like. They then gave us all a scenario, and told us to go through the store and pick out an outfit for that scenario. When we'd finished we were asked to explain why we picked the outfit we did. Afterwards we were asked to submit a reference and told we would be contacted shortly if we were going to be hired.

    Interview Questions
    • "What do you think Delia would be like, if she were a real girl?"   View Answer
    Negotiation Details
    There wasn't really any negotiating, as a seasonal employee I understood that this was their offer, minimum wage on an hourly basis, and that was just what seasonal employees got at this company.

    Application Details

    I applied in-person. The process took 1 week - interviewed at dELiA*s in June 2014.

    Interview Details

    I went in for a group interview with 6 other girls. The manager told us that she was conducting 4 group interviews that weekend and selecting 5-6 girls. We went around the group introducing ourselves and previous jobs. The manager then told us that she would ask us a number of questions and each person could answer as they'd like. There was no order as to who responded to the question. Make and effort to have you voice heard, as it can be a little difficult with so many girls. Also, I tried to keep my responses unique from the other girls.

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Henrico, VA
    Application Details

    I applied in-person. The process took 3 days - interviewed at dELiA*s in November 2013.

    Interview Details

    I applied and interviewed twice. The first time was a large group interview in the back room where they stored clothes. There were around eight different girls. They all asked us a series of questions, it was hard to keep your answer unique since there were so many different voices. The second time I interviewed it was with one other girl and management. They asked us the same questions and waited to hear our answers. It is very important that you dress nicely if you want to get the job here!! The first time I applied I wore a blouse and jeans and I didn't get the job. The second time I applied, I wore a dress and the other girl wore jeans and t-shirt; the other girl had more experience in retail, but I got hired and she didn't.

    Application Details

    I applied in-person. The process took 1 week - interviewed at dELiA*s in March 2014.

    Interview Details

    The whole hiring process was really relaxed and actually enjoyable. I turned in my application and resume to the hiring manager -who is extremely friendly and awesome- and then later that days was called to be in a group interview. At the interview she asked us all pretty standard questions, then about fashion, and questions about different scenarios we would most likely be put into. About a week after that I received a call saying she was offering me a position! Sadly I had to turn in down because of a job offering I accepted the day after the group interview :( It would have been a joy to be part of the team though!!!
