    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 days. I interviewed at Ann Taylor (Myrtle Beach, SC) in May 2016.

    Interview

    A big part of this interview is how you dress yourself for it. I would recommend looking at what is current on their site and finding pieces in your closet that are similar. This is a typical retail job interview with questions about team work and difficult customer service situations. If you get an interview it means that you passed the online personality test which means you are well on your way to getting hired if you interview well.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Ann Taylor (San Marcos, TX) in March 2016.

    Interview

    The interview was very disappointing. The store manager was unprofessional and didn't do a great job observing me. I was observing her more. She was sort of leaning over hand on chin as if she was bored. And then she'd make weird jokes. She was telling me I should quit my primary job and asked if I liked Loft or Ann Taylor better. She also bad mouthed the Ann Taylor manager for unknown reasons.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 4 days. I interviewed at Ann Taylor (Chestnut Hill, MA).

    Interview

    After applying online and completing a personality questionnaire, I went in-store to follow up with the manager to ensure they received my application and questionnaire results. Afterwards, we set up an in-person interview, which lasted for about 20 minutes. The manager asked me some general questions about what kind of work environment I liked and thrived in as well as some style- and personality-based questions. Afterwards, depending on management style and their needs, if they want to employ you, they will offer on the spot or follow up within a few days with a phone call.
