    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at Banana Republic (Las Vegas, NV) in August 2016.

    Interview

    Applied online on Saturday got an email on Sunday that I passed the assessment and to call to set up an interview. Interviewed today at 12pm with the GM, arrived early and walked around for a bit, GM was help customers. Finally when she was done quite a bit later we sat down and she asked to tell her about myself. I rambled and we just talked and talked she asks about my work history and how comfortable I was in selling a banana card I worked at macys before so it's all too easy for me. She didn't ask any other questions she just wanted to know how my personality was and she hired me based off of that and a minimum off of experience. Now I wait for my background check then I start!

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Banana Republic (Camarillo, CA) in July 2016.

    Interview

    I walked into the outlet shop and asked if they were hiring. They then proceeded to tell me it's online and handed me a flyer with the information. I soon applied, eager for the job. About a week later I got a call that they were interested in me and that they were wondering if I was interested in doing an interview... A group interview. Of course I was nervous, not knowing what to expect. I prepared myself by researching about the company and some questions that I could be asked.

    The day of the interview I arrived about 10 minutes early and was told to go hang in the back for a couple of minutes. I looked around the store, trying to get the feel of the store and its style. Then there was a costumer who thought I worked there because I wasn't wearing a bag, but she was kind and said she hopes I get the job! Then the supervisor told me to walk with him inside. He mentioned that it would just be me for the interview because the others rescheduled... Which made me a little relaxed because I'm shy around others. He then showed me a little bit of the back of the store then we sat in this one room. More narrow than wide. He first proceeded to ask me about my availability since I was a minor.. Then told me to go to the floor and pick an outfit. When I came back 5-10 minutes later I had to explain my pieces. ( impressed I took accessories). Then he asked me the other questions...

    After the questions were asked and answers were said he said he was happy and he was going to talk to his hiring manager about doing a background check. He also told me to get a workers permit from my school!! A day later I get a call telling me that they are interested and want to know if I'll take the job... I COULDNT RESIST!!! He told me that there was orientation this coming Sunday from 8-12.

    Overall friendly staff and very chilled out!
