Stock Associate Interview

Anonymous Employee in Chicago, IL
Accepted Offer
Positive Experience
Easy Interview

Application

I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Banana Republic (Chicago, IL) in November 2013.

Interview

First Interview was a group interview with about 10 people. Its was with the GM and CEM of the store. They asked a question and went around the table with people responding to the same question. Not very difficult. It probably lasted like 45 min. We were told we would get a call back letting us know if we made it to the next step. I got a call 3 days later for a interview with the MPM. The interview only lasted 20 min. The next day i got a call with an offer.

    I applied online. I interviewed at Banana Republic.

    Interview

    Went in and talked to the operations manager. Very informal. Asked about what I would do in certain situations and what customer service means to me. Pretty typical behavioral screening and asking about my past experiences and what I was looking for in the future - with the company or otherwise.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Banana Republic (New York, NY) in September 2011.

    Group interview with about a handful of people. They ask you basic questions that are very customer oriented. Interviewers just want to see some personality and knowledge of fashion. There is also a brief group project, which you walk around the store and pick out an outfit and explain the versatility of that outfit.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took a week. I interviewed at Banana Republic (Woodbridge, VA).

    Interview

    I submitted an application, then received a phone call about two days later and was asked to do a group interview. There was five of us in the interview and the general manager hosted our interviews. He asked the same questions to all of us just staggered and worded differently.

    Anonymous Employee in Fairfax, VA

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Banana Republic (Fairfax, VA) in November 2010.

    Interview

    I was first required to apply online and take a 50 or so question test. It asked situational questions and fashion questions. I then had a group interview and - 3 days later - a 1 on 1 interview. Be sure to ask questions to show your interest in the position.

    Interview Questions

    • What was the most difficult instance you have had with a customer and how did you handle the situation?   Answer Question
    • What is the best way to approach someone you don't know?   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    I found hourly wages online and aimed for the high end of the spectrum given my experience and my soon to have bachelors degree. Requesting more money without any reasoning will surely never work. You must have leverage. For example, I told the manager who offered me the job that I will soon have my degree and unless I would need to be paid a certain amount for this job to retain my interest and keep me from looking for other more profitable opportunities.

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took a week. I interviewed at Banana Republic.

    Interview

    It was easier than my current stock position job. One phone call, one sit down interview with two supervisors, one direct, the other on above. Received a call from the H.R. person the next day offering me a job. Real standard questions and format, such as "when was a time you went above and beyond with customer service?"

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Banana Republic in October 2013.

    Interview

    After filling out an application online I got a call to schedule a group interview a week later. The actual interview was more of a discussion with the manager who wanted us to talk about ourselves for a little bit to break the ice. The manager then told us about the company and some things to expect for the stock position, then she asked if we had any questions for her. After asking a few questions the interview was over and in a few days I received an offer (no negotiation).

    Interview Questions

    • There weren't any difficult questions, the only question that was asked was "Do you have any questions?"   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    No negotiation
