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.

    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.

    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.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 2 daysinterviewed at rue21 (Clovis, CA).

    Interview

    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.
