    Stock Associate Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Chicago, IL
    Accepted Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Ann Taylor (Chicago, IL).

    Interview

    I heard about the job from a then employee, so I emailed my resume. I didn't hear much of anything at first, but then I got a call three weeks later. At first I came in and talked with the manager one on one. Later I came back with a group and a different manager. We did a fashion assessment, where we had to put together an outfit from clothes on floor to be critiqued in less than ten minutes. Which will be hard if you're plus sized since you're wearing the clothes and their plus sized is limited and fits really weirdly. Note to fellow non stylish types: they LOVE big statement necklaces, especially the giant pearl bibs they always have. Also, they love the word chic.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at Ann Taylor (Chicago, IL) in March 2016.

    Interview

    I was contacted by an employee to come to a store and do an in person interview. The associate was very professional and conducted a good interview. I was told I would be contacted in a few days and have yet to hear anything back from them. I sent a thank you/follow up email and she still did not have the decency to reply back to me. Complete disregard and disrespect. If businesses want to see where to Make more profit they should really look at their interview process. Any place I apply for I shop at and so do my family and friends. So, if you're not professional you will no longer receive my money.

    The first clue for me should have been during the interview process... I interviewed with several people from Ann Taylor and Loft which I never understood at the time. Jumping through hoops for people from two completely different brands. Made no sense!

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at Ann Taylor (Orland Park, IL) in October 2014.

    Interview

    The interview process is very comfortable and is done in either a two or three step process. Either you meet directly with the store manager then are interviewed by the district manager, or you are interviewed by the co-manager then move on to store, then district. They do an assessment over the phone then set an interview time if they feel you are a potential fit to the team. The interview itself is basic questions that any employer asks followed by questions about your fashion choices and favorite trends.
