    Senior Stylist Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Chicago, IL
    Accepted Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Free People (Chicago, IL).

    Interview

    They had me interview with two managers, however because the turnover rate is so high, the interview process was long and drawn out. I ended up having to interview twice more with different managers since they kept changing.

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Free People (New York, NY) in July 2017.

    Interview

    The entire process took about a half hour, the employee interviewing me was super nice. The interview was very laid-back. It was a group interview, but it was not intimidating at all. Overall a good experience, but have yet to hear back if I got the position.

    Buying Assistant Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Philadelphia, PA
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    The process took 5+ weeks. I interviewed at Free People (Philadelphia, PA).

    Interview

    After having multiple interviews for a position at home office with anthropologie and doing a project for them, they did not make an offer however they referred me to free people. The communication with free people was slow and the entire process took over a month. They asked me to do a apparel project, print copies for the buyers, make a presentation board, dress in free people, and come in for multiple interviews. They barely looked at the project I spent days on and it seemed like interviewing me was a chore and they spent as little time with me as possible, however the people I interviewed with said they "loved me" and that "I would be a great fit" and will "do great". Spent a ton of time and money over preparing for interviews. They care more about how well you fit their image than if you are qualified or talented. Asked zero questions to see if I could complete the responsibilities of the job or had any qualifications?

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Free People (Philadelphia, PA).

    Interview

    Very quick, efficient. Heard back at all stages extremely quickly. I had an interviewer at the end of the day and they seemed so down and disinterested, I wanted to talk about my experience / why i wanted the job and would be a good fit and they only wanted to talk about what they were going to do that weekend.

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Free People in May 2017.

    Interview

    Only got to the first round, but it was a video interview that you can record with the answers to the questions that re revealed to you about 30 seconds before you respond. A little awkward, but standard for positions with so many applicants.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Free People.

    Interview

    Interview process took 2.5 weeks total. A few days after I applied I was reached out to for the career quiz and once I submitted it I was contacted that day to set up an interview. I met with the store manager and the interview was a very easy and friendly chat about my experience in retail, education, and company cultures I had experience with. After my interview we set up a follow up interview with the District Manager for later in the week. The second interview was still friendly and easy but with more in depth questions and descriptions of the business and what my duties would be. After this interview they did a background check and a week later I was offered the position.

    Interview Questions

    • Why I wanted to work for Free People/ What I liked about the brand.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    They asked me about compensation, I gave them a number but let them know I was flexible, and they met that number when I got my offer.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Free People (New York, NY).

    Interview

    You apply online, get an email about being brought in for a group interview, then you get word of whether or not you got the job. The interview is casual. You'll want to be dressed fashionably, as if you were going in for work at Free People, you definitely don't want to be dressed for any professional interview.
