    I was hired in a group interview with three other people who had also applied. It made it more like a conversation than an interview. It was just the one interview and I was hired - there was no one on one with the manager.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 days. I interviewed at Banana Republic (Torrance, CA) in October 2016.

    Interview

    Went fairly quick. Applied online and got an email from the Store Manager the next day after I applied for an interview. Found out it was a group interview. There was 5 of us, but it wasn't as scary as I thought. Was interviewed by the general manager. Asked general interview questions, and the second part we hard to create an outfit which was really fun. Then lastly meet the the Store Manager in person. It didn't feel like an interview with the SM it was more of a casual conversation, and I asked a few questions about to company and what they looked for in a candidate. 2 days later I got a call for the offer. Pay is nonnegotiable.
