    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Banana Republic (Highland Village, TX) in November 2017.

    Interview

    Well, it was a group interview. Just me and one other girl. She asked a few basic Interview questions like “Why Banana Republic?” And “Name a time when you were corrected and how did you take it?” Very easy. Come prepared to put a head to toe outfit together. They want a three piece look. The manager who interviewed us role played and told us that she was 21 and going out on a first date with someone and wanted us to put together and outfit for her and afterwards bring the outfit to her and try to sell it to her. So I brought a really pretty maxi dress, heels, earrings, and a jean jacket! She called me back an hour later and told me I got the job. There was no second interview.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at Banana Republic (Atlanta, GA) in September 2017.

    Interview

    A particular location was interested in me so they called to set up a time to talk; they never got back to me so I figured they went with someone else. I called back a week later to follow up and they said they'd lost my application but did want to do a group interview the following day. I went in and one of the employees gave me a heads up that I'd have to make an outfit so I should familiarize myself with the store. The other person didn't show up so it became a regular 1-on-1 interview. The questions were very simple and I gave solid answers. Then we went out to the floor and I had to create a hypothetical outfit for "a friend going out for drinks after work" in under 5 minutes. I was pretty confident with my two choices, but the manager didn't really react. He said ok, thanked me for coming in, and that was it. So I guess that question is the make-or-break; if I could do it again, I would have "practiced" my outfits and known the store better.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Banana Republic (Nashville, TN) in August 2017.

    Interview

    My interview was scheduled for 3pm. I arrived twenty minutes early and announced myself to the staff, who told me that the manager would be with me in "just a moment". I did not meet with the manager until 3:20 and at no point was there an apology for the inconvenience or even mention of my interview's actual scheduled time. BUT the interview itself was very casual and conversational and gave me a great sense of the manager and the team. We sat right outside of the store, on a bench in the mall and basically chatted the whole time.
