    Third Key Holder Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Jacksonville, FL
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Claire's Stores (Jacksonville, FL).

    Interview

    It was nice. Very relaxed. I had to keep reminding myself that I was in an interview and bit just talking to a friend. I was a walk in, filled out my application, the manager asked me a few questions, set up the interview for 2 days later (Wednesday). Interview was awesome. District manager called me that Monday (even though I was told Thursday) and Tuesday I was called saying that my first day of work was that Sunday . The district manager asked alot more difficult questions but I didn't bs. They just want you to be yourself. Be outgoing and smile! And love kids!!

    The interview was super simple each time I've interviewed. I met with the store manager, we sat down and she just asked me questions about my work history. Super laid back and simple. The first time I worked for Claire's I met with the DM as well, the second time I was just hired on.

    Assistant Store Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Anderson, SC
    Declined Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Claire's Stores (Anderson, SC) in July 2016.

    Interview

    Totally unprofessional. Store manager scheduled a PHONE interview through email, called me a few minutes after the scheduled time and asked me where I am. Made me rush out there for an in person interview instead of a phone interview. When I got there she had no clue what position I had even applied for and could not find my application or resume. Ended up offering me a part time, minimum wage sales associate job. Even though I applied for a management position and I haven't been anything less than a manager in 2 years -_-
