    Assistant Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    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.

    Social Media Editor Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    No Offer
    Negative Experience

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at Claire's Stores.

    Interview

    I forward my resume over to the talent manger through email and received an email 2 days later to schedule a phone interview. I responded back to her less than 24 hours about available times for interview, but received no response. The following Tuesday morning a received an email asking if I am available for a phone call that day. I respond and was schedule for the phone interview later that afternoon. About 20 minutes before our phone call , I received an email requesting another time to speak. I understand that things come up, but I have yet to receive an email from them since. This is very rude and unprofessional on their part and I will not submit an application for this company in the future. BEWARE of recruiters and talent managers at Claire's.

    Allocation Analyst Interview

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Claire's Stores (Hoffman Estates, IL).

    Interview

    Waste of time. The people I interviewed with were less than thrilled to be there and seemed to be completely uninterested in the company, their jobs and getting to know more about me and my qualifications. One of them actually spent time during the interview bashing a former employer (really professional). The interview ended without being offered business cards or any further direction. Never heard back from the recruiter. I'm sure I dodged a bullet on this one.

    Tip: maybe Claire's should actually start hiring people who are passionate and enthusiastic about the brand. This company seems to have a lot of employees that just do not want to be there. Maybe that is why the company is performing so well financially...

    Application

    I applied in-person. I interviewed at Claire's Stores (Orlando, FL).

    Interview

    It was a fun group interview, but it was down to business as it should be. There was girls who had their personal answers, but try to formulate your own answers so that you can essentially stand out.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Claire's Stores (Glendale, AZ) in June 2016.

    Interview

    One on one interview in a sitting area at the mall. Very chill almost casual interview. Hiring manager was very nice and seemed like she liked me alot. She told me about the promotions and events that happen at the store. She also told me that the store rents out accessories that employees can wear while at work. We also just chatted in general. However, I was not hired because I was looking for a summer job and they wanted someone more longterm.

    I applied in-person. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at Claire's Stores (Smyrna, TN) in October 2015.

    It was a group interview. Very unprofessional. Basically told the whole group why she did not like certain girls and it was based quite a bit on appearance. Was told she would call even if we did not get the job. I received no call and when I tried to call and ask I got hung up on.

    Application

    I applied in-person. I interviewed at Claire's Stores (Dallas, TX) in September 2015.

    Interview

    The interview process lasted about 20 minutes. A lot of the questions were expected interviewing for a retail job. A lot of them were about helping customers and what experience I have to help me at their store. Availability was a big thing, you must be available for weekends.
