    Part Time Assistant Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Grand Rapids, MI
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at francesca's (Grand Rapids, MI) in March 2015.

    Interview

    First interview was over the phone - very basic; asking about skills, past jobs, where you might need improvement as a manager, etc. 2nd interview was in person and delved a little deeper, also talking about salary requirements.

    I want to mention that Francesca's doesnt allow ANY piercings (except ears). I have a small nose piercing (and have had it for YEARS) and it cost me this position because I was unwilling to remove it for work.

    HR Department does an excellent Job, the whole company model however is complete garbage.

    At the time I was starting to get my basic experience in IT. DO NOT make plans to advance in this company, they play favorites to the point of where it could probably be filed under discrimination.
