    Took about 2 weeks to get a call, interview was the next week, offered job a week later. Average job interview process. Interviewed with either District Manager, very helpful if you have previous store manager experience, as most questions revolved around that.

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Charlotte Russe.

    Interview

    The hiring process was in person, the store manager asked questions about your retail experience, fashion icons, trends you enjoyed, etc. I was hired on the spot but the management seems to be lacking organization and communication skills.

    Interview

    Really chill interview on a mall bench outside the store. Manager was super nice and it was an easy and friendly process! Despite the traditional interview questions it felt way more relaxed and conversational. Got the interview offer a month after applying but I got the job on site immediately after I asked her my questions!

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 days. I interviewed at Charlotte Russe (Troy, MI) in May 2016.

    Interview

    It was a very casual group interview (4 of us) with the assistant store manager. Our interview was an hour before the store opened on the ottoman in the shoe section. The interviewer would ask us questions and we took turns answering her. There's no need to be nervous, just be yourself. Try not to repeat other people's answers if you can avoid it. BE ON TIME. You don't have to dress in business attire, but, you still should dress nicely as if you were working there and wanted to attract customers to ask you for help picking their outfit. Lastly, have a question prepared to ask them at the end of the interview.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 6 days. I interviewed at Charlotte Russe (Flagstaff, AZ) in May 2016.

    Interview

    The interview was a group interview, it was me and one other girl. We held the interview at the mall's food court. We were interviewed by the store's assistant manager, she was very nice and the interview was pretty laid back and conversational. I got a call about coming back for a second interview with the store manager but I declined because I wanted a position where I could work more hours. I had asked during the original interview about how many hours I could expect to work and it was only about 10-15 per week and 20 at the maximum.

    Interview Questions

    • Q: Tell us about a recent customer service experience that was positive for you and why
      Q: Tell us about a time where you disagreed with a friend or coworker and how you handled it.
      Q: Where do you get your fashion inspiration?
      Q: What was a goal you've set and how did you achieve it?  
      Answer Question

    Reasons for Declining

    I declined because I wanted a job with more hours, I asked during the interview and she said they only hired for about 10-15 per week, with 20 max.
