Positive Experience
Average Interview

Application

I applied in-person. I interviewed at rue21 (Round Rock, TX).

Interview

You start off interviewing with the assistant manager in a small group setting, if they like you, you go interview one-on-one with the store manager. The first interview is typically more about your work ethic and your overall morals (feelings about theft, etc) whereas the second is more about how you feel about fashion and your personality.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at rue21 (San Antonio, TX) in February 2017.

    Interview

    First interview was amaazing. It went super smooth and perfect. The assistant manager asked the usual interview questions. Then I was asked to sell a perfume to the manager to show my ability to sell. In the end, she said it went perfect.
    I was called back two days later for a second interview. Sadly, I arrived 10min late because a relative end up taking my car and didn't get back til 30min later. So, the manager made me wait 10min for her to call me into the office for an interview. From the start, you could immediately tell she had no interest in interviewing me anymore. She asked the questions super fast and had zero care for what answers I gave her. She cut the interview within 4min unexpectedly and explained there were more candidates to interview and I'll hear back from her within a week. Heard back within six hours that I did not make the cut.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at rue21 (Fort Oglethorpe, GA) in October 2016.

    Interview

    I put in my application and waited two days. I decided to call them and ask if there was anything else I could do to improve my chances of getting an interview. She scheduled one right then for two days later. Whenever I got the the interview, she asked me to look around the store for a few minutes, and she would come find me. There was hardly anyone in the store shopping, so it was a lot less intimidating. We sat on the bench where you try on shoes and she asked me a few questions. She told me the expectations and requirements of the job, and I got hired on the spot. The entire process only took about 15 minutes or so.

    Interview Questions

    Negotiation

    I think I could have negotiated the pay because she asked me what I was expecting, and I settle for about minimum wage. I told her I was not picky because I really wanted the job. She told me I would get from around 25 to 50 hours a week.
