    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Tilly's in July 2017.

    Interview

    Applied online, and got an email for an interview. When I got there, it was a group interview; questions were asked, but not everyone was able to answer. (Try to answer as much as possible! Although, I didn't and still got an offer for the job) You then had to create an outfit in the store according to a scenario the manager assigns you in a few minutes, and present it to the group, telling them why you chose it. The manager was going to make us talk to strangers to see how we approached them, but ended up not going through with it. Afterwards, we filled out schedules and told the manager when we would be available. I got the offer and this is my first job (I've had no previous retail or work experience) and am 17 years old and going to be a senior in high school. Everyone was very nice, and it was very laid back. I recommend you apply!

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Tilly's in July 2017.

    Interview

    I applied online, then went in to introduce myself. Got called for an interview about a week and half after that. In total, there was about 3 weeks between when I applied and when I had my interview. I applied for a seasonal position, but the interviewer seemed annoyed when they found out I was a student and asked, "oh. You just want something for the summer then?" so that seemed weird. Most people were dressed casually, in the style of the store.
    The interview was just some basic questions asked in a group. Everyone got the chance to answer. The interviewer said they usually did a role playing exercise to make sure you were comfortable talking to people but we didn't have time so we didn't do it.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Tilly's.

    Interview

    It was super rushed and unorganized. She took us outside and asked us some simple questions ( a group of 6 ) and she didn't let everyone answer. My group would raise our hands, and she would only let one or two people answer. (Btw writing this not sure if i got an offer or not so i'm putting no offer right now)

    I applied online. I interviewed at Tilly's in June 2017.

    Interview

    Applied online and was called the next day for an interview. It was a group interview with 5 other people. A question was asked and everyone was allowed to respond. For the second part of the interview, you have create an outfit; men had to make outfits for women, and women for men, and then you explain why you chose this outfit, and it was also a time to have a 1 on 1 conversation with hiring manager (which is good if you're not good at group interviews like me).

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Tilly's (Orlando, FL) in May 2017.

    Interview

    I applied online and got scheduled for an interview a week later. It was a group interview and they asked pretty simple "ice breaker" questions like "what are your hobbies, favorite brands, etc". Then we were asked about different Customer related scenarios such as what to do when you have an angry customer. Afterwards, the manager pulled me aside and made me speak to another manager. I was asked more questions about Customer scenarios and then they made me approach a random person in the store and pretend I was already an employee. I did it and afterwards they explained that they liked that I could easily approach customers and was verbally offered the job. Overall it was a pretty laid back process.
