    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at The Children's Place (Detroit, MI) in August 2013.

    Interview

    I applied online and received a call from the Store Manager the next morning to come in for an interview that day. The interview was informal, relaxed, and held in the back storage room. I was extremely impressed by the manager and how down to Earth and honest she was. We chatted for approximately an hour and a half and she explained that the next step would be an interview with the DM. Within an hour, the manager called to see if I was available to do a phone interview with the DM the next morning. I found the DM to be extremely upbeat and pleasant. I could not have been more impressed with these ladies. The conversation was light and consisted of basically discussing my strengths/weaknesses and employment history. She discussed the benefits, which included 401k, insurance, and a generous vacation/paid time off package. The conversation lasted 15 minutes. At the end she expressed how excited she was and that the store manager would be calling me with a final offer. The manager called within a couple hours later with an official offer for the salary I requested.

    Negotiation

    The DM asked what my salary expectations were. I asked high hoping that I would not be talked down much. The manager informed me that I would be paid at the requested rate. Woo-hoo!! I feel my rate was higher than most other companies pay Assistant Managers.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at The Children's Place (Columbus, OH) in November 2012.

    Interview

    You have to take an assessment online before getting an interview. Several of the questions may seem irrelevant to the job however, they will not consider you if you do not pass the test. If you are looking for a promotion you will need to take another, harder, test. Interview took place in the stock room. Phone interview with District Manager.

    • Probably not anything that came up in the interview, but some of the assessment questions could be difficult for some people.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    I had told them during the interview what I needed to make to afford my bills and they told me that might be difficult based on my experience. The offer was for the amount I requested and I didn't push for more.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at The Children's Place (Rockford, IL) in May 2012.

    Interview

    We really didn't assess my attributes, the mgr. described to me what her expectations are, what the daily duties are. She told me she would have a decision made by the end of the weekend, called on monday, it changed to mid week. when I phoned her on Monday, she said, "I told you, if I didn't call you, then we moved on" ummm, yeah but you just said decision made by mid week. I believe promotion from within, waste of time, awesome, you promote from within, but don't call anyone else if that is your intention.
