    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Banana Republic (Cedarhurst, NY) in May 2015.

    Interview

    I wasn't interviewed by the General Manager but instead the Customer Sales Manager. She was very polite and even a little funny. I didn't feel nervous at all. She informed me that the dress code was business casual and slightly dressy. No sneakers, rain boots, Ugg boots, or anything like that was allowed. Dress boots and flats were acceptable as well as heels if you could manage them. Time and attendance was very strict.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Banana Republic (Estero, FL) in April 2010.

    Interview

    I submitted by application online and a few months later received a call for an interview at the store. I arrived early and I was called into the back along with other candidates for a group interview. It was very laid back and the interviewer just asked the standard questions like tell us about yourself and a time when you went above and beyond for a customer. They also asked to name both a positive and negative experience I've encountered as a customer at other businesses. Once the interview was over they thanked us for coming and about a day later I received a call with a job offer. Overall it was a very positive experience and a fun place to work.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at Banana Republic.

    Interview

    I entered the store and spoke with the Hiring Manager, I was told to come back after I sumbitted an application online to set up an interview. After completing the application online I was given a time for an interview. I came to the interview and was taken to the back room into the managerial office. I sat one on one with the hiring manager I spoke to only a few days before about the open position. The interview was more of a conversation as she asked about my interests, and what I went to school for. I was then asked my interest in Banana Republic and then further asked basic fashion questions.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Banana Republic (Birmingham, MI) in January 2015.

    Interview

    I applied online, and I heard back from a hiring manager about 1 week after I filled out the online app. No phone interview, but they did call me to meet with a manager for a group interview. Interview was pretty straightforward and nothing to extensive. Not too much pressure though since it's not 1 on 1. General interview questions consisting of what you know about the company and why you want to work there. If you get called for a group interview just be sure to be confident and speak up when no one else is. I was the first to give my answer out of us 5 interviewees, and I think that is what got me the position, honestly.
