    Interview

    Contacted a couple of weeks after I applied. Typical questions asked and it was pretty informal. Know what the company sells and their target market. Called for an interview with the district manager and was offered the job the next day. You have to pass an online survey as well.

    Store Manager Interview

    Interview

    I was recruited by a store manager. Soon after I was interviewed by the District Manager. The interview was more like a casual conversation. She had no paper in front of her that she was making notes on. Although after working at the company now for 7 years, the interview process depends on who you get interviewed by. I think most follow a template.

    Interview Questions

    Negotiation

    I think they knew what I was making at that time because they had employees that used to work where I was, so they made me a significant offer.

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Claire's Stores.

    Interview

    Very easy. General retail experience questions, "what-if" questions, questions about past employment and what you liked and didnt like. Keep positive and peppy and you will be fine. First few days are learning register and general company know-how. Everyone will have to learn to do ear piercings though even if you are under 18, so be prepared for that.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at Claire's Stores in December 2016.

    Interview

    I applied online a few months prior but I guess my application was still in their system. I was called for an interview at their store. The interview lasted about 20-30 min with basic questions. The interview was very friendly and relaxed. Afterwards the manager told me she would contact me in a week. Once I got the call she told me I would have a follow up interview with the district manager at another location. The interview with the distrcit manager was a little more tricky because she only asked me to asked to ask her questions. Then told me that I would get a call in a few days.
