    Junior Copywriter Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Mahwah, NJ
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at dressbarn (Mahwah, NJ) in April 2016.

    Interview

    I found the job on indeed.com and was redirected to the Dressbarn website to apply. About a week or two later, HR call me for a phone interview/screening. While on the phone, we scheduled an interview at the office with the senior copywriter, and with the HR woman I talked with on the phone. I met with the HR lady first for about 30mins. She gave me a quick tour of the office, and then I met with the senior copywriter for about an hour. That night they emailed and asked me to come in one more time the next week to meet with the creative director and another HR woman. I was offered the position about a week later. My interviews were more like conversations, so those hard hitting behavioral questions were never really asked.

    Interview Questions

    Negotiation

    When they called and offered me the position and gave me my salary, I asked if it were negotiable. She said no because they were on some sort of budget, but she'd check anyway. Then they emailed me my offer letter with a 2,500 increase. Still lower than I was hoping (but not by much), but I assumed since the letter was sent that was their final offer so I didn't counter it. Plus this was my first like real job in my field and I didn't have loads of experience.
