Application

I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Maurices in January 2017.

Interview

Asked about me and wanted to know more about my personality and what I'm working on not job related which threw me off. Very friendly and down to earth. Shared some laughs and eased the tension.

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Maurices in September 2014.

    Interview

    The interview took maybe 20 minutes and the standard interview questions were asked. We had the interview outside on a bench. Bring a resume, they'll ask questions based off of it. I had my interview with only one of the store managers, but I know that sometimes it might be two of them.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Maurices.

    Interview

    They seemed very unorganized. First I would have 2 interviews. Next thing I knew it was 3. I was told I would be the first assistant but then At my final interview they told me it was just a full time assistant manager. I've seen my manager put off the hiring and interviewing process and girls become very discouraged. It makes the store and company look undependable and flaky. Not a good way to build a solid customer base.

    Interview Questions

    • All of the questions were pretty run of the mill. Nothing really took me off guard.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    The negotiation was at the end of my final interview and revolved strictly around pay. I wanted more than they were willing to pay, but still ended up on the high end of the pay scale.

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Maurices (Chicago, IL) in April 2013.

    Interview

    I met with the store manager and the assistant store manager for the first two interviews. They asked me where I shopped, to describe examples of how I led successful results, and an example of when I'd failed. The final interview was over the phone with the district manager. It focused more on business results, lots of numbers, and how my background would help me contribute to the team.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Maurices (Kenosha, WI) in January 2012.

    Interview

    A waste of my time. It could be a great place to work, but I unfortunately had a bad experience with the manager. I received a call 3 weeks later, and did not accept.

    Typical questions such as:
    Tell me about yourself.
    Why Maurices?
    How would you "coach" somebody?

    At the mention of pay the district manager "pretended" not to know.
