    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Express.

    Interview

    The application is completed online. I received a call from the hiring manager within a week to schedule an interview, went in for short interview (~15 mins), and was hired and scheduled for orientation within a week from the interview. The interview was simple, a few questions about any customer service or retail experience (I had no retail experience), schedule, hours I wanted, etc.

    I applied online. I interviewed at Express.

    Interview

    Asked in store if they were hiring, they told me to apply online. I applied online (simple application and a personality test), they had me come in for an interview. The assistant manager brought me into the stockroom and just ran through really basic, typical interview questions. She called me back a day or two later and offered the job.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Express (Columbus, OH) in October 2016.

    Interview

    We sat out in the hallway of the mall and spoke about why I wanted to get into retail from my past job experience, and about who I was as a person. I feel like the interview questions were appropriate, but there wasn't as much emphasis on career growth as I would have liked as someone with several years of managerial experience.

    It was a group interview, the manager asked us 6 questions. It took place in the back of the store, like the warehouse area. The manager was very friendly and welcoming and briefed us about the store. It didn't take very long either. He didn't ask to see our resume.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Express (Fresno, CA) in August 2016.

    Interview

    Group interview held in the back room of the store. It was myself and 3 other candidates. There were lots of scenario questions and sales based questions. 2 of the candidates kept dragging out the question so by time it was my turn and the other candidates turn to answer, we had forgotten the basis of the question.
