    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took a week. I interviewed at Claire's Stores in April 2010.

    Interview

    I walked into Claires, asking if the were hiring for management and the store manager told me she was looking for an assistant manager. She then set me up with an interview, and told me to fill out the application and bring it back the day of the interview (3 days later). When I arrived for the interview, the DM was there and decided to sit in. They both asked me many questions and the store manger wrote down my answers on a 3 page paper. After the interview, she told me she would get back to me and I then received a call about 2 weeks later offering me an assistant manager for very little pay.

Store manager was great and a wonderful person very professional and punctual. District manager was two hours late! She talked too much.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Claire's Stores (Brandon, FL) in July 2013.

    Interview

    No matter what position you apply for, you will get similar questions. The higher up positions will ask more questions about experience in leadership and management, but Claire's really likes to focus on customer service skills. They want their employees to really connect and gain more loyal customers. Many questions will revolve around different scenarios involving customers as well. Make sure to do a walk through of the store and know the product. You also have to be comfortable with doing ear piercing's.

    Assistant Manager Interview

    Average Interview

    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.

    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.
