    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Talbots.

    Interview

    I applied through a craigslist add and got a reply on the same day inviting me to a group interview later that week. The group interview was me and two other people and we were interviewed by two of the store's managers. They were both nice but a bit intimidating. They asked a lot of "what would you do in this situation" type of questions and ask about your past experience. They DO check references so make sure you put down reliable ones. I got a call two weeks after my interview with a job offer.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 6 days. I interviewed at Talbots (Houston, TX) in June 2015.

    Interview

    The manager gave me a call about 2 days after I applied to schedule an interview. I came in wearing a semi-formal dress, they complimented the dress and told me this is how I should dress myself if I were to work here. Both of the managers interviewed me in an office and it was quite relaxing, not as stressful as I thought it would be. They asked me a series of questions then asked if I have any question for them. After the interview, they contacted me on the day that they said they would and offered me a position.

      Note: this actually happens quite often but you'll eventually get the hang of it.   1 Answer
