    I worked at Five Below part-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    Good first job experience in retail. Good management and coworkers. Policies made sense and were good for the customers, employees and business.

    Cons

    Busy for holiday season. I'm not the best at handling money, though I improved quickly. While I was there there were some changes and/or procedures for the holidays that I was not always informed of because I worked only a couple days a week.

    Human Resources Manager Interview

    Anonymous Employee in New Castle, DE

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeksinterviewed at Five Below.

    Interview Details

    Very disorganized. The recruiter who I dealt with flat out forgot to call me not once, but three times at our previously agreed upon time. When I finally spoke with her, and was invited to an in person interview on site, she was over 30 minutes late arriving. I had a second interview at the corporate headquarters that went a little smoother, but I was surprised that at the lack of depth the questions had. Finally had a third interview that was supposed to be with three individuals at the job site. After waiting in the lobby for 45 minutes, I finally met my first interviewer. No one seemed to stick the schedule they had, and I was shuffled to people who seemed to have no idea they were supposed to meet with me that day. At the end of the run around, I was told they were going to schedule the two missing people with me to speak via phone. Instead I received a generic email saying they are going to consider other candidates. After 3 interviews! Very unprofessional, and it is quite evident they are not very considerate of a candidate's time, or providing useful, professional feedback.
