    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Citi Trends in January 2017.

    Interview

    Face-to-face interview with district manager. She told me she would call me back and never did which is so typical these days. Nonetheless it's still a total disgrace. Company is bare-bones, lots of theft, and customers leave the store messy every single day

    First Assistant Manager Interview

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Citi Trends (Manning, SC) in November 2016.

    Interview

    I applied online, and received a text message from a recruiter asking when I would be available for a phone interview. I answered the text, and got a call back. The interview as set up for a few days later. It was simple and quick. The interviewer was polite and upbeat. She set me up for an in person interview at the store. I arrived for that interview only to find out that the manager wasn't coming in due to "problems at home". I had to come back a few days later. That interview went fairly well. I was asked very few questions. Mostly I listened to the District Manager tell me about herself and how great she thought the company was, and how awful she thought most of her employees were, for about 2 hours. I was finally asked for how much pay I would like. I gave my lowest amount and she said that it was way too much. I figured we were done and I wasted my time. Later, I got an email that invited me to fill out an application on their company site and agree to a background and drug test. I agreed, bc it offered to send me a copy of the background test for free (I've always wondered what they look for). About a month later, I got all the results in mail (no felonies, death certificates). I still figured I wouldn't hear from them bc I wanted more pay than they could offer. Then, a few more weeks go by and I get a phone call from the store manager offering $1 an hour less than I asked for. I hadn't gotten any other job offers in that time, so I took it.
