    Interview

    I applied online and it took a week for them to call me back. I had a phone interview and the manager later called me in to do a group interview in the store (later that day). There were 2 other people and it was really relaxed since the store had already closed. Managers were very nice and made everyone feel comfortable. The main interview was through the phone, and the group interview was really them just explaining the process if we got hired.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Kirkland's (Virginia Beach, VA).

    Interview

    I was called for an interview after applying 2 months ago . I came in the next day and asked for the manager . Waited around about 10 minutes for her to come out . She said that her office space was a mess so we walked around the store and talked . She really didn't ask me much of anything other than my past work experience , and about how I feel about talking to customers . Which I'm great with I have a long list of retail experience . At the end she stated I would hear something from her by the end of the week . Never heard anything . I would appreciate knowing one way or another if I got the job or not . It sucks when jobs leaving you hanging

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Kirkland's (Lafayette, LA) in May 2017.

    Interview

    The interviewer was so DRY. She didn't crack a smile the entire time. I understand it was first thing in the morning but it made the experience very cold and unwelcoming. She acted like I was bothering her or something. I arrived 5 minutes early and the interviewer was on the phone with her friend. I waited about 15 minutes until she was done. Interview questions were standard. I was bummed at first, but I wouldn't want to work with someone like her anyway. Blessing in disguise!
