    I have been working at francesca's part-time

    Pros

    I have learned so many valuable skills from working here. This is not the typical retail job. You will be put out of your comfort zone to talk to guests and that can be more nerve racking then it seems. However, it is so rewarding and builds your communication skills.

    Cons

    Starting out as a stylist hours are minimal. However, there is room to move up to hire positions where hours will increase.

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at francesca's (Gainesville, VA).

    Interview

    I was called almost immediately after applying. I came in early and I was super nervous, as this was my second job interview ever. I really wanted to work here because I love the store which made me more nervous than usual. But I tried to stay calm and professional. So the interviewer walked me to the back room and she only ended up asking me 3 questions and cut me off, walked me out and didn't say a word about any offers or next steps or anything. They were fairly easy questions. I found it a bit disrespectful because if she had given me a chance I could've proved to her how much I wanted to work here and how good I would be at the job. I was really taken aback. I know my answers weren't great but they weren't absolutely horrible either. Overall, just disappointed at the whole process. I came at this location a lot and the girls already working there made me feel uncomfortable for the most part but I still wanted to work here. Now I can't walk into that store because I'm too embarrassed.
