Assistant Manager Interview

Easy Interview

Application

The process took 3 days. I interviewed at Claire's Stores in August 2017.

Interview

Pretty simple. interviewed with GM in food court area. Anybody could land a job with them and I believe that's why this company has a huge turn over rate. GM that interviewed me was immature to say the least. I knew before the interview started it wasn't the company for me. When interviewing potential new hires try to be more professional instead of sipping on your drink and have a little bit more class. This job is more for teenagers instead of grown women.

    Very quick interview access after applying for the job. In store interview. The process was short sweet and to the point. A bit difficult to get in touch with the the District manager. But the store manager made it work. Very patient with the process and I was also.

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took a week. I interviewed at Claire's Stores (Aurora, IL) in July 2016.

    Interview

    It was pretty simple, most questions are about what customer service means to you, how you would handle certain situations, and your sense of style. First, they will start with a phone interview if you are new to the company, and from there they will decide if a face to face is necessary. I had a phone interview, face to face, and then a phone interview again with the district manager. All were less than 30 minutes.

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Claire's Stores.

    Interview

    The interview is very easy and straight to the point. Most of it was the manager explaining the position and required responsibilities. Since I had previously worked for the company when I was in high school, the manager just asked me about the store I worked for. I was asked about the store size, the average daily sales, store volume, and if I had pierced ears.

    Interview Questions

    • Would you have a problem piercing ears? Piercing is required for all Claire's positions, full time, part time, sales associates to district managers.   Answer Question

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at Claire's Stores (Phoenix, AZ).

    Interview

    Asked about previous experience. Job length. Strengths/Weakness. Personality. Interview with store manager first, if they like you, they will pass you on to district manager for further interviews. Ask if you know what ADS, UPTs, mean to affect sales. Talk to you about the effective way to talk and sell to customers.
