    Negative Experience

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ months. I interviewed at Free People (Santa Anita, CA) in January 2017.

    Interview

    I applied in October 2016 to work at the store I shop in at least once a week at the request of the manager who said I would be a perfect fit at said store. I didn't hear back from them until January of 2017. I had scheduled an interview at the earliest date and time that was available but asked if I could change it to the other date that was offered later in the week as my mom had to spend the night in the hospital and I wouldn't have been my best self during the interview because of it. The manager told me that if I didn't show up to the original interview then my application would essentially be thrown in the trash despite my family emergency. I will not be applying again nor will I be shopping in that store again until they get a new manager because I refuse to support anyone who is that insensitive.

    Interview

    good, a fun enviroment. they asked many questions but I didn't feel like a good fit for the job. New york is very competitive so I think I will try again soon in a different area. everyone was very nice and helpful especially when applying. You need to be familiar with the brand and its values to get hired...

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at Free People.

    Interview

    They brought us into the store (new store location that was not yet open) and we did a group interview. It was not a very structured process and you just tried to get a moment to speak up.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Free People (New York, NY) in June 2017.

    Interview

    it was easy and quick. the manager asked me a few questions about my experience and how I would handle certain situations that arose in retail jobs. After a few days, I got a phone call saying they would like to hire me and that I should go in for a few training sessions (which were paid) before I officially started as a sales associate.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Free People (Boulder, CO) in May 2017.

    Interview

    There is an online application where you have to fill out general information and a test on basic skills. Next there was a group interview where they ask questions and have all four applicants answer. It was a little awkward because everyone wanted to respond to the questions first. Overall the decision seemed largely based on the applicants schedules. Everyone in the room had the same amount of experience.
