    Key Holder Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Douglasville, GA

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at New York & Company (Douglasville, GA) in January 2018.

    Interview

    Once I applied, I called and spoke to a manager. Then a couple of days later they called me to come in for a interview. It was a group interview and the assistant manager was the interviewer. She asked for us to walk around the store and create an outfit of our choice and talk about why we chose those items. It didn't even feel like a interview. The manager was asking us questions but she would go in depth to explain what the store and herself are looking for. I felt really comfortable and it was short. The questions were logical and I was offered a position a day later. The training process is easy as long as you write down what your manager is showing you then you're ok. A little hint for anyone in the future, after you have applied online, don't be afraid to call the store to speak with the manager and let them know that you have applied online for that specific position. That's your time to ask when they will begin pulling applications and calling people for interviews. Then within that given time, call to check on the status of your application. I have done this with every job I had, including this one, and it has not failed me yet. Managers like seeing dedication and persistence. Most people put in their application and don't follow up, and you can easily become lost within the hundreds of people that are applying also. I just thought to put that out there. The best of luck to you all!

    Co-Manager Interview

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at New York & Company (Bowie, MD) in January 2018.

    Interview

    I submitted an application online and I also submitted my resume and a hard copy application to the store via courier. I received a call a few minutes after the manager received my resumé. She informed me that there was no longer a co-manager position for the store but that there was an assistant manager position and asked if i would still like to interview. I agreed and interviewed 2 days later. I was unofficially offered the job. I am now waiting for phone interview w/ DM and/or RM and results of background check. So i’m just waiting! I’m a bit annoyed though. The position for co-manger was reposted on Glassdoor 1 day ago even though I was told there was no longer a need for the position.

    Negotiation

    I received an unofficial offer. I still need to phone interview with the DM or the RM. There was no negotiating as I was told that the assistant manager position pays less than the Co-manager position and is basic across the board regardless of experience or education.

    Application

    I applied in-person. I interviewed at New York & Company.

    Interview

    First interview was a group interview with the store manager. There were about 6 girls total. Each person had a chance to answer the same question, so it was tough for whoever had to go first. From there you were selected for a one on one interview with another manager.

    Assistant Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Richmond, VA
    No Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at New York & Company (Richmond, VA) in December 2017.

    Interview

    The first interview was in the store and was very casual. It was more of a conversation about the desperate position of that location. I thought for sure I had the job. Then I got a call saying I needed to interview with the regional manager. This was in a different location, in the mall's food court. It lasted for about an hour and she asked me more specific questions about revenue and customer conversions. She said that there would need to be a third interview for the district manager, but it may not be for several weeks. I'm still waiting.
