Easy Interview
Application

The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at J. Crew (New York, NY) in Aug 2018

Interview

I interviewed in person with the store director. She asked a lot of textbook questions like “how do you feel about having people reporting to you?”. Very positive experience, and I really enjoyed speaking to her. I then interviewed via phone with the district manager. She told me that I would be receiving a call within the next few days from HR, and that I would have an answer by Friday (she called me Monday). Friday came, and I had heard absolutely nothing. Two weeks after our call, I got an email stating they were not going to offer me the position. I am totally fine not being offered a job, but at least have the common decency to call me in a timely manner, especially after two interviews. I told them to remove my name from their database. This company is unbelievably unprofessional.

Interview

I was called for an interview at the store and met with the hiring manager. She was friendly and personable and I think I talked too much. I may have been too comfortable and now feel I didn’t keep my answers short and to the point.

  • Why do you want to work at Madewell?
  • How would you handle having to address an issue and have a training moment with an employee who has been here longer than you and may feel they have seniority?
