    Co-Manager Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Phenix City, AL
    Accepted Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Rainbow (Phenix City, AL) in February 2017.

    Interview

    I went through 2 interviews. One with the store manager and one with the district manager. I applied online and the store manager called me about 30 minutes later and scheduled an interview for a later date. I attended my first interview and she asked basic interview questions and explained Rainbow policies and company goals. I was called a week later to meet with the district manager. I attended that interview and talked for about two hours. The district manager told me that my last interview would be with the regional manager over the phone and we scheduled that interview. Before I knew it, the store manager called and said since I had a short employment history, she would have to check and see if theyre still interested. Very unprofessional and ignorant since she knew I had only had one job previously which I stayed at for almost 6 years and we discussed this. Why call me for a 2nd interview and schedule a 3rd interview if my employment history was an issue. Their clothing is tacky anyways.

    Assistant Buyer Interview

    Anonymous Employee
    Accepted Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at Rainbow.

    Interview

    I meet with the VP of HR, the VP of the merchandising department, and then a couple of the buyers. When I arrived on time for my interview, I was waiting around for quite a while, maybe about 30 minutes or more, which seemed pretty unprofessional to me. But the interviews were pretty smooth, they don't really ask very typical interview questions. You're kind of just chatting with them. And honestly, as long as you're a smart and pleasant person, whether or not you end up getting hired pretty much depends on the mood of who you're talking to. If the VP of merchandising is in a good mood and you're interview goes well, you're in. If he happens to not be in a good mood, he won't like you.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Rainbow (Tuscaloosa, AL) in April 2014.

    Interview

    Very short 20 minutes tops, very simple questions, friendly, ask about previous experience in retail. The job will better suit someone who does not have many responsibilities and who would rather not do much and not advance or get rewarded for the work that is performed.
