    I applied online. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Banana Republic.

    Interview

    Received a call a week or so after submitting my application from their hiring manager. She set up an interview that week with me. I had one 15 minute interview, very standard questions for a retail interview nothing unexpected really. I was told at the end of the interview that my application would be accepted pending a background check. I was called five days later to be told that everything had come back fine and that if I was still interested, training would be that Saturday.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Banana Republic (Arlington, VA).

    Interview

    I went in the store and asked about a job opportunity, they informed me that you have to apply online. Once I applied, I received a call about 2.5 weeks later asking me to come in for a group interview the following week. The interview was a JOKE because the other people there were clearly not suited to work in a luxury fashion store and should've applied at Old Navy instead. Needless to say, I shined in interview which was fairly easy, just asked if we had any retail experience, for those of us in school and had other jobs, would we be able to commit certain hours for this job, and which positions were we interested in. After the interview the manager pulled me to the side and told me that I was going to get a second interview and have my phone by me for the rest of the day because the GM would be calling to scedule it.
    The second interview was one on one with the General Manager. He just asked why I was interested in working there and about my customer service skills. Then he told me the salary they were willing to pay ($9.50), and when would I be able to start.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Banana Republic (Tysons, VA) in September 2014.

    Interview

    Process did not take that long. I applied online, got a call the next day. Went in for an interview the same day they called me, and the next day they called me back and offered me a position. I even had my orientation the same day, and the next day I was training. So far I like it, if they really serious the hiring process is fast. Which is good if you need a job and quick and dont want to wait weeks for an answer.

    Interview Questions

    • How do you feel about folding?   1 Answer

    Negotiation

    They are really good with negotiation, but it also depends on your experience. I asked them for $10 (have worked at 2 macys, a kohls, and at davids bridal) and when they offered me a job it was for $10 hr.
