    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 days. I interviewed at Boston Proper.

    Interview

    Pretty simple, basic questions. Asked what's in season now, why you want to work there, and to pair outfits together. Also how to help/greet customers. They don't ask "Describe yourself" "Where do you see yourself in 5 years" and they won't. It's not on the list of questions for them to ask you. You need to know about their story. That's going to really help you. Know the type of customer that shops there and how their store is different. The key is to know fashion, know about the store, and about the customers. That's going to be the main thing. The customer is ALWAYS first. And the questionnaire you fill out online is a personality test so answer truthfully because it really does tell when you are lying/your answers are contradictory.

    Interview Questions

    • How to make a really weird shirt good for day or night.   1 Answer

    Negotiation

    None, they're stingy with their pay. I asked for more than they offered when I got promoted and got denied.
