    I worked at Free People part-time

    Pros

    Fun, casual environment, discount on clothes

    Cons

    Some of the shifts were "on-call," so it was hard to rely on that money.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Free People.

    Interview

    Interview process took 2.5 weeks total. A few days after I applied I was reached out to for the career quiz and once I submitted it I was contacted that day to set up an interview. I met with the store manager and the interview was a very easy and friendly chat about my experience in retail, education, and company cultures I had experience with. After my interview we set up a follow up interview with the District Manager for later in the week. The second interview was still friendly and easy but with more in depth questions and descriptions of the business and what my duties would be. After this interview they did a background check and a week later I was offered the position.
