    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at rue21 (Chicago Ridge, IL) in November 2017.

    Interview

    Really easy and lax. Manager took me to back "office" and asked me several simple questions. Basically offered me the job on the spot, said I'd like you to show an example for other associates so I will start you as a sales associate and fast track you to management

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at rue21.

    Interview

    I first interviewed with the store manager. We talked for about an hour and it was very casual. She asked very predictable questions (ex: Why do you want to work here? How do you motivate a team? How would you handle difficult customer situations?). We both had worked for the same company in the past at different times, so we spent more time talking about that company than rue21. Within a few days I set up a phone interview with the district manager. She asked mostly the same questions. She was very straight forward and positive about the company.

    Interview Questions

    • I was taken aback when I was asked about previous company numbers and shrink. This information is typically private and not encouraged to be shared.   Answer Question
