I applied online. I interviewed at Madewell (New York, NY) in Apr 2022

Interview

Applied online twice and heard back only 3-4 weeks later. Not sure what took them so long.... Had a phone interview with the recruiter that lasted around 15 minutes. Pretty straight forward questions like talk about your work history, why do you want to work here, why this category, salary requirements. Didn't hear back anything. I did send a follow up email and didn't hear anything back either. Wish the recruiter could have just emailed me back saying they decided to move on with someone else. Totally ok with me, but silence in my opinion is rude and turns me off from applying ever again. Also, not sure who they're looking for? I had the title they were looking for, I like what I do and my resume included places very similar to Madewell/JCrew so pretty sure I was more than qualified for the job. Are they looking for someone to come in from Chanel, lol? Just be open and communicate with your potential employees. Hiring ghosting doesn't fly anymore. And guess what two months later the position is still open...

I interviewed at Madewell

Interview

I submitted an online application and then was called to come to the store for a 30 minute interview. Definitely wear your most stylish outfit! We chatted for about 30 minutes on my past experience, why I was interested in Madewell, and some customer service fundamentals. Good experience and I got a call back pretty quickly after—maybe a couple of days.

I applied online. I interviewed at Madewell (San Diego, CA)

Interview

Pretty simple, was asked to do a Zoom interview by the store manager after applying. I wasn't told it was a group interview, but they interviewed me and one other person on the call. Basic "tell me about a time when..." questions, mostly gaging your retail experience and how you handle retail situations. Some questions about style, where you shop, what you think the average Madewell customer is like.

I applied online. The process took 1 week. I interviewed at Madewell in Mar 2022

Interview

I got an email from one of the recruiters asking for a phone interview. Day of interview she had to cancel due to a meeting but emailed me a few minutes before or after our initial phone interview. Standard phone interview, reached out a week later she said team is still in the process of making a decision. I felt the interview went really well and she seemed to like my answers to her questions. Followed up again as it's been about a month since I heard something but still nothing, assuming I got ghosted unfortunately. This previously happened to me when I interviewed for a role with J. Crew
