    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Chico's FAS (Fort Myers, FL) in June 2017.

    Interview

    Its a little unorganized. They fly you down, put you up in a hotel, rent you a car...basically romancing you. My recruiter did not meet me when I arrived. So, I was assigned to another recruiter- also did not show up. Then finally someone came to meet me in the lobby to take me to a small "interrogation room". That's Where you are for 6 hours. They order you food, but I had 5 minutes to eat and the recruiter told me I can just throw it out because I needed to go on a tour. You interview with about 7 people (some you won't be prepared for because they will not put them on your list). They waited over 2 weeks to tell me I didn't get the job because I didn't have enough experience- which was on my resume.....before I flew down and wasted a Sunday and a day off of work. ALSO- there is no other fashion company there. BEWARE- if you do get the job and accept and lay offs happen or they down size, there's no where else to go there.

    The interview process was terrific! I was interviewed by a super manager who asked relevant questions and really listened to my experience and background. I did feel that the manager was well prepared with her questions.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Chico's FAS (Sevierville, TN) in January 2017.

    Interview

    I completed the online application and was called 24 hours later for an interview. I interviewed with the Manager, first, who was great! The second interview was with the Asst. Manager who was super friendly. I could tell they enjoy working for the company! They pay well and have a bonus feature, as well as a great discount. My last interview was over the telephone with the District Manager, who was all business. She asked lots of scenario questions on how I would handle conflict with staff and customers as a manager. Once I finished with the DM, I was contacted the next day and offered the job. The process was timely and very professional.

    Interview Questions

    • What would I do with an employee that was not meeting sales goals? What would I suggest to help the employee meet their goals? What would I do, if the employee still was unable to perform? How would I handle conflict among employees? How would I handle a difficult customer?   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    There was not a real negotiation process. I had told them what I was expecting for pay and the met my requirements.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at Chico's FAS in December 2016.

    Interview

    I was called by a location I did not apply for, as it was farther away than my closest Chico's. Nevertheless I decided to take the interview.
    I was told to dress as stylishly as possible. I wore a Chico's-inspired outfit with a casual blazer. Because it was the holidays, the manager had to interview me on the floor and help customers in between questions. There really weren't any questions, though, and I brought a resume so she could review my past experience. She was very friendly and suggested since I was interested in visual merchandising for me to be hired for a support role instead of sales. She said she had to talk to the other managers, but I felt good about the interview. A few days later a manager called me and offered me the job.

    I will say I did look over the Chico's page on Glassdoor before the interview and was able to make up a list of possible questions to study, but I was not asked any of these questions.

    Negotiation

    None, but higher than my last job due to experience.
