    Interview

    It was very straight forward and only asked questions that they wanted to be answered. Make sure you are prepared by doing your research about retail and marketing. They mainly asked about the retail side and how you would approach a customer and make sure that you up-sell for them so that they buy in more of their deals they have going on.

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Foreign Exchange in September 2015.

    Interview

    Got a call back a week after I submitted my resume and application to the store. Very easy and casual interview. Sat on a bench outside the store and discussed my skills, my abilities, if I was capable of doing this and that, my interest in fashion, etc. It also helps to wear their clothing.

    Interview

    Same day I took in my application I was offered an interview time set for the next day. When I had went in the next day I only waited about 10 minutes for the store manager to interview me. It was fairly easy since she only asked about 3 questions and then hired me on the spot.

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 4 days. I interviewed at Foreign Exchange (Thousand Oaks, CA).

    Interview

    Filled out an application in store - got a call to interview two days later. I liked the store and she sounded nice, but some of the managers expectations about coming in to work last minute scared me a little. friendly, though. had me pretend to build an outfit for a girl and a guy about to go on a date together at the movies, looking for clothes at the foriegn exchange. pciked random things in the store to do it. she liked "casual" style i think.

    As informal as a formal interview could be. We sat in the break room and I was asked questions. She asked me personality questions and work ethic questions. Was very helpful afterwards and seemed to hire me because she liked my personality.

    Application

    The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Foreign Exchange (Arcadia, CA) in March 2011.

    Interview

    The interview was pretty serious so i was surprised considering it was just a clothing store. The girl who interviewed me wasn't the friendliest person I've ever met, she went straight to business no getting to know each other or anything like that. The interview was fast and the questions were pretty easy.

    Interview Questions

    Easy Interview

    Application

    The process took 3 days. I interviewed at Foreign Exchange in May 2012.

    Interview

    I turned in the application and my resume to the store, one day later I got a phone call to come in for an interview at 6 o'clock. It was really short notice but I went anyway. I got there 5 minutes early and introduced myself to the manager letting him know I had an interview at 6. He told me to wait around for a bit, so I did. Next thing I know, I'm waiting there for thirty minutes while the manager is talking to his other manager, walking and disappearing into the back room, and coming in and out of the store. I was getting fed up, so I went up to the girl and told her I had an interview at 6pm and she said it's 6:30pm, I then told her that I had been waiting since 5:55pm for an interview. She had to call the store manager and he then played it off as if they never "saw me" and this was the same guy I had introduced myself to when I first walked in!! We then had the 1:1 interview. 2 days later I got a call, but I had missed it and they didn't even leave a voicemail and I didn't even want to call back after all the waiting I had to do.

    OVERALL, unprofessional. It was the worst interview I have ever had. Waste of my time.

    Reasons for Declining

    I don't like the management and no longer like the store. They could not pay me enough to work for this place. I accepted another offer somewhere else.
