    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Lord & Taylor (Paramus, NJ) in December 2015.

    Interview

    I applied online on a Friday and got an email from the HR rep on the following Tuesday. She asked me to come in the next day for an interview. It was very relaxed and short. I got there early and she took me in, we actually finished before my scheduled interview time! She was super sweet and asked about 3 or 4 questions (only one of them felt like a real interview question). Then right away i was given the job. I think they are hiring almost anyone for seasonal positions. Afterwards she told me to make an account on their website so I could fill in working documents. I came in for a paid training session the next monday.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Lord & Taylor (Paramus, NJ) in December 2015.

    Interview

    I applied through indeed.com, I have never had a job before so I was nervous about getting one. I was emailed back two days later asking to come in for an interview. The HR lady, Georgianne, was very laid back and sweet. She asked me two or three questions and then asked me to come in for training later in the week. I was confused at first because it sounded like I instantly got the job, which was correct. All my coworkers had a similar experience, getting immediately hired during the interview. However, a new HR rep just started working for us, so I am not sure if the process is still as smooth.
