    Assistant Designer At HQ Interview

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Chico's FAS (Fort Myers, FL) in June 2019.

    Interview

    Recruiter contacted me after I applied for the position in about 2 weeks.
    Next day we had a wonderful phone interview, at least it sounds amazing to me and everything goes so well, very hopefully I will get a second interview that kind of feeling to me.
    Recruiter asked me to send him my portfolio.
    ... and 4 weeks past...NOTHING....
    I sent 2 emails politely to follow up, and got absolutely no reply.
    ---If you are not considering me, please tell me, or keep me updated if you are still in the process. that would be so much better than no reply. It is just rude and no respect. Especially the initial phone interview went so well, it is hard to believe they just disappear like this.
    I'd rather get a rejection than not knowing what's going on.

    Two phone interviews:

    First interview was a standard screening interview with HR and the other was with the Department Head. Everyone was nice and seemed approachable. The questions were straight forward and they tried to develop a connection with you even though it was only over the phone. I received a offer call two days after my interview with the Department Head.

    Retail Sales Associate Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Oak Brook Mall Branch, IL
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ months. I interviewed at Chico's FAS (Oak Brook Mall Branch, IL) in April 2019.

    Interview

    I had 3 seperate interviews. I interviewed with the Assistant Manager, Manager and Regional Manager. The Regional Manager obviously didn’t like me. The Store Manager and Assistant Manager were very professional and wanting to hire me. I would be very interested in knowing who the Regional Manager hired since it is her decision solely who is hired. I have been in Sales for 30 + years, working for Fortune 500 clients and managing high level accounts. I traveled the world throughout my career and have always had an eye for fashion. The Regional manager interviewed me for a very long 1.5 hrs. If I was to guess, The reason she didn’t hire me was because of my age. I am very professional, speak well, dressing in the latest trends and attended the interviews in Chicos clothing. I am also very customer focused, winning awards throughout my professional sales career. All I wanted to do was work part time. M and share my skills. To be quite honest, I have never been through such a lengthy interview process and for 10.20/ hr.

    Interview Questions

    • What is my style? This was asked by the Regional Manager.   1 Answer

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Chico's FAS (Rancho Cucamonga, CA).

    Interview

    It is a small shop for women’s clothing. The interview was with the manager 1:1 who was nice and friendly. She asked the usual questions that are found in retail as well as asking about my fashion style. After the interview she took me out into the shop where I was given a scenario to dress a woman customer. I had to choose 3 outfits. The interview went well. But be warned applying for this position you act as a stylist for the customer. You have to dress up for this position. Accessories and the works. I didn’t know I had to be a stylist when I applied because it was not mentioned in the job posting, but despite, it went well.

    Specialist, L&D Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Fort Myers, FL
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Chico's FAS (Fort Myers, FL) in March 2019.

    Interview

    After a recruiter reached out to me on LinkedIn, I had about a 25 minute phone screen with them. Typical questions about my background, experience, and interests. Following that, I had another phone interview with the hiring manager. They asked more role-specific questions and dug deeper into what types of projects I have worked on. The last step was an in-person interview day that lasted about 3 hours. In total, I interviewed with 7 different people. It was a bit overwhelming at first, but everyone was very friendly and conversational and made me feel comfortable. It helped me get a sense for what kind of work the team does, as well as the type of environment of the workplace. I had great conversations with everyone and accepted the job offer the following day.
