Assistant Manager Interview (Positive Experience; Easy Interview)
I applied online and the process took 2+ weeks - interviewed at Banana Republic.
Interview Details I applied online and was initially contacted by a recruiter and went through a phone screen, set up with a GM interview, interviewed with the DM, and they made a decision from there. The process took about 2 1/2 weeks, just because I am already working full time and needed to find the time to meet with the GM and would miss phone calls from the recruiter.
Interview Question – No difficult questions really, just make sure you prep yourself just like you would for any interview. The questions are pretty standard. Answer Question
Reason for Declining – I declined because the pay was only $0.50 difference from what I was making and the volume of the store was 3x as much as where I was already working. There was no room for negotiation.
Assistant Manager Interview (Negative Experience)
I applied through a recruiter - interviewed at Banana Republic in July 2013.
Interview Details Well I applied online for the position and received an e-mail from the recruiter wanting to know if I would be interested in scheduling a phone interview with her. Of course I said yes, given the fact I was looking for employment. We set it up for the following Wednesday at 11 am. When that day and time came, I hadn't gotten any phone call. I waited 10 minutes because I wasn't sure if she was running behind schedule with other phone interviews, and then decided to call her. She didn't answer so I left her a message to call me back, and still haven't heard from her since. It is quite apparent that they desperately need more qualified and professional individuals working for their company.
Interview Question – There was no interview to give a question. Answer Question

Assistant Manager Interview (Positive Experience; Very Easy Interview)
I applied online and the process took 4 weeks - interviewed at Banana Republic in March 2009.
Interview Details Started with an HR recruiter, she asked the standard interview questions. It took about an hour. She then told me about a few opportunities and set me up with the department manager.
The Department Manager interviewed me, again about an hour, standard questions - why do you want the position, tell me about your experience, etc.
Finally I interviewed with the District Manager who again, didn't ask anything too crazy.

I applied through another source and the process took 3 days - interviewed at Banana Republic in June 2012.
Interview Details It was very personal and behavorial. What did I expect from the company, what did I have to offer, how would I handle situations, how would I balance workload and customer service while leading a team. I felt very much at ease and relaxed. The interviewer not only ensured that I was what the company needed but that I would be set up for sucess.
