    Cashier Interview

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

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at C&A (Chicago, IL) in January 2013.

    Interview

    They were very professional and I appreciate them giving me the opportunity to come in and see the company. I think that it took longer for them to call me than it should have taken them to reach out because I had other employers lined up and needed them to hire me so i could pay my rent very soon. It meant the world to me to pay my rent on time so that I can stress free but they did call me I was just impatient but I thank them for being awesome people.

    Marketing Assistant Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at C&A.

    Interview

    Extremely long and cumbersome, round after round after round with weeks between them keeping me on hold. Very inhumane process, not at all professional and the interview itself was quite bland, very standard questions on weaknesses and expectations. Definitely a bad experience. In the end I was mostly tired of it and as the weeks went by got less and less enthusiastic about the whole job prospect.

    Merchandise Planning Assistant Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Brussels (Belgium)
    Accepted Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at C&A (Brussels (Belgium)) in June 2013.

    Interview

    I came in through a selection bureau and had three interviews at C&A; two with HR and one with my future unit leader. There are a series of computer tests relating to language (you need to be able to understand a list of instructions in English) a personality test and a logic test with a series of figures and you choose the next one. If you want a higher position in planning you will also need to take a leadership test, a mathematics test and a more difficult version of the logic test. Getting the results from HR on your tests is messy; you have to keep asking and possibly get your unit leader involved if you were applying for another position in the company.

    Interview Questions

    • The reason I gave a negative review is that some of the questions - even on the questionnaire that you need to fill out - are absolutely not relevant to the job and can be quite discriminatory. For example, the questionnaire wanted to know the profession of both of my parents; I think this is unnecessary information for an office job and, if one of my parents had had trouble with the law or if I had had a difficult upbringing, it shouldn't have any bearing on my applicability for the position. My education and job experience are relevant. As a woman I was repeatedly asked in interviews and when applying to progress through the company, how I intended to combine that with motherhood. I have not heard one male colleague report that he was asked how he intended to combine his job with fatherhood.   Answer Question
