    Application Details

    I applied in-person – interviewed at J. Crew.

    Interview Details

    I applied in store during the holiday season so it was a bit hectic. Was given an interview on the spot by the manager. They liked me and had me fill out a background check that same day. I was told they'd follow up with me once my background check cleared. As I said before, I applied two weeks before Christmas so it was busy for them and the total hiring process took about 2 months. I followed up with them every two weeks just to show interest in the position and was called in once the season was over. For the initial walk in I wore a fitted Oxford button down shirt, colored chinos and leather boots. I was offered the position and I accepted.

Crew, crewcuts (for kids), and Madewell banners. Madewell is a women's-only collection of hip, casual clothes. CEO Millard "Mickey" Drexler, recruited in 2003 from The Gap to revive J.
