    Interview

    Ridiculous online application process. Time-consuming and irrelevant to job. glitchy program. Took all day to complete. Again HQ trying to ensure job security. Not sure that they checked on my references. the whole process seemed like a silly game devised by out of touch HQ people

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Chico's FAS (Aventura, FL) in April 2015.

    Interview

    Disorganized management, the interviewer only spent 5 minutes with me almost as if she was in a rush. I had to wait almost 15 minutes before being interviewed, because the individual who was supposed to interview me gave me an earlier time as opposed to the time she comes in to work. I was only asked 3 questions before being sent on my way with a promise of a call after she came back Drom her two week vacation. I called back after two weeks to find out what was going each time I called to ask to speak to her she had someone say she was busy and that she'd call me back.

    Interview

    It was very easy. Manager made me feel instantly comfortable. Manager was very friendly. She was the most interested in how I come across more than what my experience was in retail. It didn't matter that I had no prior experience in retail, not in the past 30 years, anyway.

    Dress in Chico's style. Lots of jewelry and current colors. You don't have to have previous sales experience but you do need to indicate a love of fashion and desire to sell.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Chico's FAS in June 2014.

    Interview

    I was contacted by one of the hiring managers and came to the store for an interview. It lasted about 15 minutes and consisted mostly of questions about my prior retail experience. I don't have much, and the manager didn't seem overly impressed by what little I did have. This made me wonder why I was contacted. There weren't any behavioral questions, which I had expected based on reading other reviews of interviews here. I asked her to describe what they are looking for in terms of commission, hours, etc.. Apparently, part-time means VERY part-time, at least at the location I interviewed at. The job hours would only be 5-10 per week. If you get more, it's based on how well you sell. So presumably, if you aren't a top seller, you won't be getting many hours. Also, no one is "full-time" except the managers. I was told that while I wasn't required to purchase and wear Chico's items, I would be required to have the "Chico's:" look, whatever that meant. I couldn't tell from her demeanor whether I had it or not. This might be an okay job for someone who really loves sales or doesn't want to work much, but it wasn't the opportunity I was looking for. Moving on.... I actually just interviewed yesterday so I have no idea if I will be offered the position or not. However, I will decline if offered. I need to work more than this.

    Interview Questions

    • Trying to conceal my dissapointment that the job hours would be so minimal. The ad said "Part-time", not "Practically No Time". I wouldn't have applied had I known it was only 5-10 hours per week.   Answer Question
