    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at Pacific Sunwear in November 2015.

    Interview

    Its a small group interview with two managers that doesn't last more than 30 minutes IF that. They ask about your sense of style, what's "In" at the time, and what brands of the store u are familiar with. It's low pressure and easy to do well in.

    If you dont stress out its easy, really a peice of cake. The managers are laid back and they make you feel confident in what you're saying so you don't mess up so much.
