    I have been working at dressbarn part-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    It’s a fun place where you can explore how your personality can inspire women to look and feel beautiful through sales. The management is very fun and you feel like you’re apart of a team and family when you work.

    Cons

    Sometimes it can be hard to keep your hours down when you’re part time with the company. There’s not much growth in the company either.

    Corporate Office Position Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Declined Offer
    Negative Experience

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at dressbarn.

    Interview

    I interviewed 3 times with this company. Once was with one department who shot me down even though I was experienced and they have had the position opened for months! I think the manager just wasn't happy with anything. The second interview was for a different position. It went great and I was called back. I was very excited. The second interview went great as well, the only thing was that they refused to negotiate pay! I was taken on a tour and I was given all the information. The office is AMAZING! So beautiful and the company really cares about the employees. However, I was told I would receive a call back and never did. I had to call several times to hear back and when I did, I was told that the position was given internally but they were finding something else. That never happened and I didn't hear back until months later. They reached out asking if I would like the job now since the internal candidate resigned already. I said no.

    Reasons for Declining

    I declined after I was asked months later. At that point, why would I want to go somewhere that didn't want to hire me in the first place? Sometimes internal candidates are not better!
