    Interview

    It was an easy interview. The interviewer was very friendly and she asks a lot of questions to you like everything that you've written down on your resume. Remember to be enthusiastic, friendly and smile during the interview. The questions consist of your background, your knowledge in customer service, what are your strengths and weaknesses and experience with customers. Goodluck!

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at Ardene (Toronto, ON (Canada)) in July 2014.

    Interview

    basic questions eg. why do you want to work here? Do you have any work experience? etc I got pretty nervous as it was my first interview so I'm not surprised I didn't get the job. As for what to wear, visit the store prior to your interview to get a feel for what the other staff wear, and then take it up a notch...it IS retail so I don't recommend the typical neutral blazer and dress pants.

    Quick and easy.
    Was offered the job the next day.
    Basic questions.
    As long as you're outgoing and can answer the questions best as possible you will be fine.
    Managers mainly care about availability and personality.

    Interview

    Easy and quick. Regular interview questions. Pretty much only asked behavioural questions, just your typical stuff. Also asked questions about availability and if you've had previous retail experience. They prefer if you do, however they are willing to train if you don't.
