    Third Key Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Lincoln, NE
    Declined Offer
    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Claire's Stores (Lincoln, NE) in November 2010.

    Interview

    I was called by the store manager for an in-person interview. It was your typical behavior type questions plus a lot about customer service experience. Then they made me take this online assessment which seemed never ending. Stupid thing ever, it was all about personality. They never called me so I called to make sure they received it and it turned out they didn't so I had to fill out that hour-long online survey AGAIN. Then the district manager wanted a further interview with me, but I declined that interview.

    Interview Questions

    • Tell me about a time that you went out of your way for a customer?   Answer Question

    Reasons for Declining

    I was offered another retail job and I read about how much that position sucks. I was also angry that they put me through all that work of interviews for just a low paying part time job.

    Assistant Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Declined Offer
    Negative Experience
    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.

    Accepted Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Claire's Stores (Saint Louis, MO) in July 2016.

    Interview

    The interview was over the phone and very informal. I did not feel as though it was an interview due to the non personal way of interviewing. The interviewer was extremely polite but it took way too long to get a response and to receive my pay increase.
