    I worked at Claire's Stores full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    The environment is small and friendly. The day can get pretty busy but most customers come in knowing what they want. Formal introduction and training only takes one day and you get paid for the day.

    Cons

    The hours could've been better, but they made it work with our staff number.

    Advice to Management

    My only advice would be to give future staff the option to pierce ears or leaving the piercing to managers and assistant managers

    Sales Associate/Third Key Holder Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Chino Hills, CA
    Declined Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at Claire's Stores (Chino Hills, CA).

    Interview

    The interview process was pretty annoying. I had to do 3 interviews. 1 with the assistant manager, then the store manager, then the district manager. It was a little annoying when it was a 30+ minute drive for me JUST for an interview. They then offered me the position, I accepted, made me drive out again JUST to sign ONE paper and tell me my orientation when my orientation was. I said that I was unavailable that day & the manager said she would call me when she looks at the schedule so they could reschedule me because they were busy at the moment & she couldn't do it right then and there. A week went by, no call. I called 5 times within the next 2 weeks asking for the manager & they kept saying "she was unavailable & would call me back" which never happened. On the 6th call she finally answered & told me they're not having any more orientations & id be the 1st they'd call if they were having another one. To me, this entire thing was very unprofessional & the communication on their part sucked. The interview was extremely easy, but the situation after left a very bad taste in my mouth.
