Easy Interview

Application

I applied in-person. The process took 5 daysinterviewed at rue21 (Bloomington, IL).

Interview

Went in for one interview with the store manager. Very easy and painless, questions are what you would imagine they would be. Store manager was nice, the interview was just done in the stock room, so it was very small, but that's ok. I got offered the job and accepted after.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at rue21 (Birmingham, AL) in July 2015.

    Interview

    I interviewed with 2 Managers in a dressing room & it was super easy. They talked more than I did. I wore light wash jeans, a white vneck, a blue kimono, brown sandals, and brown & gold accessories. Do NOT dress up for the Rue 21 interview unless you're applying to become a manager!!! A light amount of makeup is okay considering you'll probably only be there 20-35 minutes. Try to be open during the interview and make them laugh. Smile and look them in the eye when you ask them a question. Don't forget to tell them thank you at the end of the interview.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person – interviewed at rue21.

    Interview

    The hiring manager interviewed 3 people at a time, she went thru different questions for each person and also one certain question for everyone to answer. Right after our interview she hired all of us on the spot and got us to go ahead and fill out paper work, probably because there was a new store opening and had to get employees asap.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter – interviewed at rue21 (Macon, GA) in May 2015.

    Interview

    I asked around to see if anyone knew about summer employment around my hometown since I would be coming home from school. I was able to get in contact with the store manager and we emailed for about a week. I sent her my resume and she told me to come to a job fair she was having where the store would be since it has not opened yet. It was a very easy going interview. It didn't last long. I did the application first then one of the managers interviewed me. They asked about how to sell fragrance, how to handle different situations in the store among associates, and my job experience.

    Application

    I applied in-person – interviewed at rue21 in April 2015.

    Interview

    It was very short and seemed completely uninterested the whole time. She was pretty blunt and the whole thing took 5 minutes, it seemed like they already had their candidates and my interview was just for procedure.
