Assistant Manager Interview

Anonymous Employee in San Diego, CA
Accepted Offer
Positive Experience
Average Interview

Application

I applied online. I interviewed at Charlotte Russe (San Diego, CA).

Interview

I was contacted by the store manager to set up an interview for the following week and it was an overall positive experience. She was super friendly and we chatted for a bit before starting the actual interview. A lot of questions that required you referring back to various situations at previous jobs held. Overall the actual interview took about half an hour and I was told I would be contacted soon with an offer.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Charlotte Russe in June 2017.

    Interview

    Standard script of customer service / operations questions, interviewing manager was engaging although questions were dry. Took place in the middle of a food court which was noisy but surprisingly not distracting. Background check process is overboard, check criminal, credit and driving record before employment.
    The money they save on management pay goes towards background checks.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at Charlotte Russe in April 2015.

    Interview

    I come from a restaurant background. I got a call pretty quick for an interview. The store manager was nice, but didn't look so good presentation wise. We had a good chat and I met some of the employees and was shown around the store. During that interview I was told about "extensive and detailed training" that I would go through and basically promised a job making more than the 30,000 I was making at my current job (and that I was supplementing with a second part time job). During that interview I had to go around the store and make a night and day outfit. Ok. I got called for a second interview and met the district manager and had a long conversation with both of them, was pretty much offered management job. The next day I got a call saying they were concerned because I "didn't know their products well enough"... And was instead offered a 10/hr job... To quit my 2 existing jobs. Made me feel like it was all misleading and full of smoke. All of this was in the course of a few weeks.

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at Charlotte Russe (Schaumburg, IL) in June 2013.

    Interview

    It started with a phone interview with the District Manager. After that, I did a phone interview with the manager (she was in WI and relocating to IL) typically they would do in person interview. After that I went to the store to meet the manager and district manager. I filled out some paperwork and I did a 'on the floor interview' which involved me working on the sales floor for maybe 10 min or more as they reviewed what I did. Such as, did I pick up stuff off the floor, did I straighten, how many customers did I talk to? Did I talk to customers? Basically to see how I act/perform on the floor.

    Negotiation

    I came from a store that never gave raises, they were cheap. I thought my hourly pay was good, from what I previously was paid. I learned, later on, I could have been getting paid a lot more than what I was. Always ask for more.
