Application Details

I applied in-person. The process took 2 daysinterviewed at rue21.

Interview Details

The interview process was one of the easiest I've had only because it was a grand opening for Rue 21 and it was a job fair there was a lot of people getting interviewed that same day so you pretty much had to prove yourself but I was very easy basic interview questions interview was quick because of the amount of people getting interviews ended up getting a call not even 2 hours later as a temporality position which sucked because it was only for 2 days and for 13 hours, but would love to work there as long term it was a great experience.

    I applied in-person. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at rue21 in July 2014.

    Interview Details

    It was a group interview which a little less nerve wrecking than an individual interview except I was the first one to answers all the questions because of the order we went in and it didn't give me much time to think of good answers. Other than that the questions weren't too hard.

    Application Details

    I applied through other source. The process took a weekinterviewed at rue21.

    Interview Details

    It was an open interview for a new store in Iowa. The interviews were between 12 and 5 and I went at 11:50! There were three ladies that were sitting at one table and they were all super nice. Once I filed out my application, one of the ladies told me to sit in front of her (there was a girl being interviewed on my left.) The lady who interviewed me didn't like hearing the other ladies interviewing people so we moved to a different table.

    Questions:
    -Tell me about yourself
    -Hobbies
    -Fashion Trends that you like
    -Sell me this perfume
    -Work ethic
    It was super laid back

    Dress up! It's a job interview. The other people didn't dress up, I was the only one.

    Application Details

    I applied in-person. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at rue21 in February 2014.

    Interview Details

    The Interview Process was nice and simple. I was called in for a group interview. This was my first retail job. I was only 17.I went into the interview being the youngest person in the entire store. The manager was a male that was interviewing me and 2 other girls. The other girl wasn't really interested and then it was just me and one other girl. They took us to the back in the stock room and interviewed while showing us how they base who gets what hours. (THAT'S A WHOLE OTHER STORY). I then got called into to do an interview with the store manager. They did call references.

    Application Details

    I applied in-person. The process took 1+ weekinterviewed at rue21 in November 2013.

    Interview Details

    I received the application in person.When I gave my application, I was told to come back the following Tuesday for a interview.This was my first interview (I'm 16) and I have no retail experience so I was a little nervous and anxious. Come to find out, he forgot about a event, and the manager forgot to tell me that day was his off-day. That was unprofessional, but i still agreed to come back the following Friday. The interview was about 30-35 minutes long and most of the questions were typical. I was told that they already had all the associates they needed. I honestly didn't like the interview experience at all.
