    Visual Specialist Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Bellevue, WA
    Accepted Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at Banana Republic (Bellevue, WA) in January 2015.

    Interview

    The interview process is very basic, the interview takes place out of the mall, so it was very noisy and feels very unprofessional. You cant even focus on what you want to say to the interviewer. They asked you about your past experience, whats your strength and weakness, your salary expectations, and if i have any questions.

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4 days. I interviewed at Banana Republic (New York, NY) in October 2012.

    Interview

    Applied online and one week later was invited to an interview. When I arrived, I discovered it was a group interview, but with only 3 other people. The interview was very quick and laid back. We were just asked a few general questions (What are some of your hobbies? What inspires your fashion taste?). The whole process lasted around half an hour, and when we finished we were told we would expect a call for a 2nd interview in the next 48 hours, and if not we would be notified by email.
