    Application Details

    I applied in-person. The process took 3 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. Overall the woman who interviewed me was really nice.

    Interview Questions
    • Unexpected question was related to my keyholder experience ... I have a full time job already and I wasn't interested in anymore responsibility.   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    Pay was higher than expected (10.50) which has me worried a little. Like what the job will be like. Also, she told me the training was at a hotel and it was going to be 6 hours long and it was to go over sales experience and possibly register training.
