    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. I interviewed at Banana Republic.

    Interview

    Pretty simple and quick just be yourself and try to look fashionable. Try to give answers pertaining to fashion. Whether it's designers or fashion. Know some of the company history so that way you'll look more impressive and prepped. Sometimes they let you create an outfit probably the only time you'll get too.

    I had an on call interview process in which the manager asked me multiple questions to see if I fit their job description. I then got a call the next day saying I was hired and when I came into work I had to watch multiple videos on sales, customer service, communication, and marketing the brand. Afterwards, I was trained hands on by a current employee and a week later required no more training and started working for the company myself.
