The interview went well & the manager is very professional. She asked multiple questions, like "What kind of experience do you have?" "What is a challenge you have faced in your current position & how do you overcome it?" After the interview, she gave me her business card & i emailed her a thank you letter the following day. Two days after that she called me with the offer & i accepted right away. Then i received an email about the offer & submitted my information for a background check. After the background check is received back by them, they'll call you in for 3 training days.

    Was first tested on computer for order taking, that was very easy & passed that, then had face to face interview, The person interviewing me was very young, but told me they have been with the company 5+ years. They asked me questions about my previous jobs and then checked my answers with what I had posted on my resume. Some of the usual generic "interview questions" were asked - "tell me about a time you went above & beyond in customer service", "tell me about a time that you wish you had done something different & why", etc.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at J. Crew in August 2016.

    Interview

    Recruiting Manager contacted me first. We had a phone interview that was very in depth and really challenged me. The next step was with the district manager and was much more laid back. It was about my career goals and aspirations and where I wanted to go with J Crew. Then they moved me on to the Store Director. Our conversation was more interview questions but with specifics to her Store.
