    Average Interview

    Application

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

    Interview

    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.

    Assistant Store Manager Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Louisville, KY
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. I interviewed at Claire's Stores (Louisville, KY) in October 2015.

    Interview

    Interviewed with the store manager first in store. She scheduled the interview for when she couldn't leave the store so it was a little awkward and the store associate kept asking her questions in the middle.
    Then you interview with the District Manager (only for management positions), which is easy and casual.

    Anonymous Employee
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at Claire's Stores in August 2015.

    Interview

    I was asked to interview the day I submitted my application, and went to interview with the store manager later that day. About a day later I received a call for a second interview with another store manager in the area, and within a couple of day I interviewed with her. A few days after that I got a call from the first manager asking when I could start. Overall, both interviews were relaxed but thorough and I had a good feel of what the position would be like before I started.

    Third Key Holder Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Declined Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at Claire's Stores in July 2015.

    Interview

    First I interviewed with the assistant manager at the front counter, and she asked me some general personality questions. She also asked me about different scenarios, and asked me to greet and help someone in the store. While interviewing, she checked people out at the cash register, and also answered the phone. About 20 minutes into my interview the manager came into the store, and decided to talk to me as well. We left the store and walked around another store close by as she asked me similar questions the assistant manager had. Somewhat awkward experience...

Pros: “The discount is great, and with the horror stories I've heard about ear piercing it was nice to learn about the processes and be sure that I was able to contribute to doing everything...”“The discount is great, and with the horror stories I've heard about ear piercing it was nice to learn about the processes and be sure that I was able to contribute to doing everything correctly and providing someone with a good piercing that wasn't misplaced or crooked. The health insurance is decent and if you leave you can carry it over (out of pocket of course).” – Full Review
