    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.

    Easy Interview

    I applied in-person. I interviewed at Claire's Stores (Dublin, Co. Dublin (Ireland)) in June 2017.

    Interview

    It wasn't really a long process for me as I found this job at the start of summer when they were in need of Summer Staff. In week 1 I went for a group interview and then got a call back at the end of week 2 saying I got the job. There was three of us in the group interview. It was pretty chilled, it was in Starbucks with the Manager and Assistant Manager. I also dropped my cv into the store.

    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.
