    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Charming Charlie (Bloomingdale, IL) in September 2015.

    Interview

    First was in person about an hour in length that was fine because they were very detailed on the job description in all aspects! Second was a phone interview about maybe a week later with one district manager the one for the store was not there at the time then my final was another phone one with the Dm for my location should have been in person however with consideration of previous circumstances I was able to do a phone one. The first one actually had two parts as well consisting of all componits of senior managers. Not to bad but I thought for a retail position a lot. But in the end well worth it!

    Sales Associate, Charmer/Style Specialist Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Orland Park, IL
    Accepted Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Charming Charlie (Orland Park, IL) in April 2015.

    Interview

    It was relatively easy. They ask you wear all black ( well when i applied over a year and half ago, now they ask that you dress business casual). You would originally meet with a group, but for me I received a one-on-one. The back room at this location is the size of our pinky and you have to maneuver around everything just to get to the back office. The interview listed about 15 minutes and a few days later I was given an offer.

    Interview Questions

    • Which celebrity do you look up to in regards to fashion sense and why?   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    They told you what your pay would be and that was it. They then told you what day to come in to fill out your paperwork.

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Charming Charlie (Gurnee, IL) in July 2013.

    Interview

    I saw a job listing on Snagajob.com so I filled out the application online. About a week later, I was called for an interview. I ended up having to call back and reschedule it because of a sudden conflict and the manager was very understanding. The interview was with the store manager, another candidate and myself. She asked us pretty simple questions, such as "what is excellent customer service?" and "if you could have any celebrity's closet, who would you choose?". They end the interview by asking you to go out into the store to create an outfit for the celebrity you mentioned earlier. The outfit must be easily converted from a day look into a night look and it must reflect the celebrity's current style choices. All in all, it was pretty simple. I made an outfit for Taylor Swift and I chose bold, retro-looking colors and patterns and they loved it. I got a call two days later saying I got the job! It was very simple and super fun. Most definitely the most interactive interview I've ever had!

    Interview Questions

    • Which celebrity would you like to trade closets with and why? Be careful with this question because they have you go out into the store and create an outfit for the celebrity you chose)
      Where do you love to shop and why?
      What trends do you follow right now?   1 Answer

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Charming Charlie (Chicago, IL) in April 2013.

    Interview

    Applied online, received a phone call weeks later (at least she was polite about it...) and was scheduled for a group interview. After that I had a one-on-one interview. The manager was a bit snippy to one interviewee whom didn't wear jewelry. The interview was conducted in the back room, but my store has since then been conducting them on the floor, which looks like it would be terribly distracting!
