Seasonal Sales Associate Interview

Positive Experience
Easy Interview

Application

I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Banana Republic (Chicago, IL) in October 2016.

Interview

I received a phone call from a manager at the store. She called to invite me for an interview. I had one interview. It was with the hiring manager. It was right before the holiday season during late October, early November. The process was pretty simple. It was supposed to be a group interview but it was only me and another young lady who showed up. After the interview with us both, the manager told me to go outside while he spoke with her alone. (He cancelled the interview with the other people that were supposed to come). After he spoke with her, he called me back in to offer me the position.

    Very casual and straightforward. Process went by quickly, whole process from application to hire was 2 weeks. Came across more as a conversation than an interview. Managers came across friendly and seemed to work together frequently, always on the same page.

    Interview

    It was a job fair hiring event. We met the Store Manager at check in then he put in different groups of 4 - 5 each with 2 other employees as interviewers. They didn't ask anything challenging at all. Very simple interview all you had to do was be well dressed, and well spoken, no cultural, race, or body type discrimination.
