    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.

    Application

    I applied through other source. I interviewed at Banana Republic (Laredo, TX) in June 2017.

    Interview

    Since it was a new opening for the store management hired about 30 employees to help about 2 were temps. Since the management team already had worked together in different stores they all came into br and had their own favorite workers as some of the associates came from the other stores they worked together so they had a guaranteed job. I was one of the other ones who got hired only to be used for a month then started getting my hours drastically cut to the point id work about 10 hours a month. Interview was short and easy since it was a job fair.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 7 weeks. I interviewed at Banana Republic (Arlington, VA) in March 2017.

    Interview

    I have worked for two locations previously so I figured getting rehired at the Pentagon City location would be a breeze. It took 7 weeks before I got scheduled for an interview, but only after I called and called, they never contacted me. The interview was done in a group, we were talked at/lectured for an hour and a half, I was lectured on how I did not sell the manager a box of wipes correctly when he tested us though he never bothered to see if we knew the actual merchandise. He seemed on a bit of a power trip, very critical, did not ask any real questions and only lectured on how screw ups were always our fault no matter what. Over all a very negative experience just to work part time folding clothes at a mall, get a grip and be realistic.
