    I applied online. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at Lane Bryant (Hampton, VA) in March 2017.

    Very small interval for interviewing, some interviews overlapping into those waiting to be seen. The manager seemed stern but nice, didn't smile all that much but whose daughter was floating around the store complaining of hunger.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Lane Bryant (New York, NY).

    Interview

    There are two interviews you have to do, to get this position. I was okay during my first interview, but when we moved to the second interview, she got so personal that I wanted to cry, and I did not want to be there anymore. Because of this, I did not get the position that I wanted.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Lane Bryant.

    Interview

    The screening interview with the recruiter was the worst experience I've ever had. She was short with me and tried every way she could to exclude me from the candidate search. Comments about pay not being high enough for me, there were good internal candidates being considered, no opportunity for advancement, etc.

    Assistant Store Manager Interview

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at Lane Bryant (New York, NY).

    Interview

    I applied for three store manager positions that were posted in my area. I was called a few days later by a store I didn't apply to and was told to call a fifth store to ask if she had any positions. Apparently there were no store manager positions available, despite at least three being posted on LinkedIn within the past week. I called the fifth store and was asked to come in an interview for an assistant manager position. The store manager told me the store couldn't pay me the wage I was asking but could get close - and would I be willing to accept at a slightly lower rate? I told her I would be willing to consider it if the offer came with a clear career pathing goal. The interview seemed to go well and by the end I was told my resume would be submitted to the DM. I was called later that afternoon and told my DM phone interview was scheduled for the following day. The DM and I got along well. The interview was very thorough and lasted over an hour. I was told I'd be contacted on Friday with an answer. Friday came and I got the call telling me that the DM loved me, but couldn't pay me what I was asking. Then silence. No offer - not even a lower offer. I said I was sorry to hear that, but that I enjoyed getting to know her and the DM, too. She said they enjoyed speaking to me and the DM was going to keep my resume on file for when a store manager position came up. When the conversation was over, I checked LinkedIn and found three more store manager positions posted that day.
