    Personal Stylist Interview

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took a week. I interviewed at Anthropologie (Austin, TX) in March 2017.

    Interview

    Upon turning in my application online, I called the store and spoke with the hiring manager to let her know I turned it in and I was hoping to interview. They called me back in less than 24 hours and we scheduled an interview. The interview lasted about 45 minutes, the questions weren't too difficult, the harder part was pulling outfits. The interviewer described 3 different types of customers to me and I had to pull clothes that I would style them in for each. Pulling the outfits wasn't a problem, the difficult part was running around the store without knowledge of where everything I needed was. If interviewing for this position, I would highly recommend you go to the store before hand to familiarize yourself with where things are.
    Also, I would recommend that you bring in a portfolio. It's not required, but I could tell she was surprised I brought one. Hopefully that will have earned me some bonus points!
    They said they would call me back Monday to let me know. I interviewed Thursday, so Monday is a fairly short amount of time to wait!

    Sales Associate Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Baltimore, MD
    No Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Anthropologie (Baltimore, MD) in March 2017.

    Interview

    I applied online and about 3 days later I received an email asking me to fill out a survey. The survey was about what I would do if I caught a customer stealing from the store. A week after the survey, I received an email asking me to come in for an interview. On the day of the interview, I walked in 20 mins early and the manager greeted me and we went over and sat on the couch in the middle of the store. The interview was supposed to be a group interview, but none of the other applicants showed up. It was honestly simple and easy. The manager asked a few simple questions about me, why I wanted to work in the store and what my interests are outside of work. After that, I was asked to complete an outfit for a new mom that was going out on a date. I chose something stretchy because she is a new mom and she may have a little extra weight from giving birth. I recommend if they give you an outfit challenge, pay close attention to who the customer is and what they're all about. They're looking for someone that knows who their customer is and knows how to pick out clothing for that customer. They also asked me to explain why I chose the outfit.
