Interview

Quick interview, asked what you like best about the store and how you would describe yourself. I noticed the hiring manager was glancing at what I was wearing. I was fashionable with torn jeans, a crop, jewelry, and some sandals they were being sold at the moment. I got hired on the spot and started working the next week.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at rue21 (Beavercreek, OH) in July 2017.

    Interview

    First it was regular interview where we sat and talked. Then I was tasked with picking out an outfit for the manager that I believed fit her style and I had to sell it to her. I did SO WELL at this. The shorts i showed her, she actually owned and everything. After I sold her the clothes I put them all away and the other lady working was like "Wow! She's even putting it away" as if people usually didn't do that and.... I WAS NOT OFFERED THE JOB EVEN THOUGH I DID AN AMAZING JOB!

    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.
