    I worked at Vera Bradley part-time

    Pros

    I love the company and the discounts. I felt appreciated as an employee. My managers and coworkers were fantastic! They were so flexible and encouraging. The customers are nice and passionate about the products. I worked part time and then I worked as a seasonal employee for a few years. They were always so flexible when it came to working seasonal. Overall, I had a great experience at Vera Bradley.

    Cons

    I don't really have any complaints.

    Application Details

    I applied in-person. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Vera Bradley in October 2014.

    Interview Details

    Sent an application and got a call the next day for an interview. Went for the interview and was asked SO MANY questions. Pretty sure the interview ran for an entire hour. But anyway, she had a sheet of questions about 30 deep and asked me literally every single one and then some. By far the most obnoxiously long interview I have ever had for a retail position. I actually started to blank out with the questions because I lost interest in answering them. I'll find out if I get the job at then end of this month, but I just don't know if I have a good feeling about it.
