After submitting my application I was called back for a group interview with about 6 other girls. They asked each of us general questions like why we wanted to work there and what experience we had. After about a week I was called back and was formally hired. One other girl was hired.

    Application Details

    I applied in-person. The process took 1+ weekinterviewed at Charlotte Russe.

    Interview Details

    I walked in and asked for a paper application, submitted it, was called back for an interview in the afternoon a few days after. It was a group interview with four other candidates, held in a sitting area in the mall, very casual and friendly. As the assistant manager conducting the interview said, she was "the realest," very down-to-earth and not intimidating. Company culture/store seems to be much this way also, but Charlotte Russe is of course a trendy, fashion forward young women's clothing store, which is how they expect you to present yourself as an employee. You are not required to wear Charlotte Russe clothing, but it helps to understand their style. I was in fact wearing one of their blouses that was probably among the most business casual than much of what they carry, but the assistant manager cautioned us against slacks since current street fashion is in the leggings/joggers realm.

    Interview Questions
    Negotiation Details
    It's a mall job, so you can expect minimum wage with chance for growth and raises when you do well, get reviewed, etc. It seemed we all lacked prior clothing retail experience and this wasn't a management position, so there's not really room to negotiate.

    Application Details

    I applied in-person. The process took a dayinterviewed at Charlotte Russe in October 2014.

    Interview Details

    I was walking past and decided to go in and ask for an application. Since its seasonal time i know they would be hiring i got my application and walked out to fill it out i returned a few minutes later with a completed application and my resume. The assistant manager took my application and thanked me for applying. I really didnt think i would get a call because she looked a little busy i have a lot of retail experience but was nervous because if i did get a call i suck at group interviews (or so i thought lol....)

    A few minutes after i walked out the mall literally 7 minutes! I got a call to come in the next day for a group interview i was excited and terrified all together because in a previous group interview at hollister i did horrible. So i went home and came on here of course to get an advantage and boy was i overwhelmed i thought wow these question are pretty much behavioral which i dont do too good on luckily i was not asked any yay!

    I arrived early i was actually the first one there my outfit was super stand out ish if that's a word lol waited a few minutes for everyone then walked across the mall to this storage area i studied so much and was hoping i remember my answers but actually she just wanted to get to know us she asked about 4 questions everyone was hired and on friday i start.

    Tips: Just be yourself really don't over think it like me the interview was very laid back and easier than i thought

    Application Details

    I applied in-person – interviewed at Charlotte Russe in September 2014.

    Interview Details

    I saw the job ad on Craigslist! They were re-opening the store at the mall and said they were accepting applications on Sept. 13 and the 20th! I went early in the morning on the 13th but no one was there. So I came back on the 20th in the afternoon and there was a booth outside with 2 ladies. I went over and gave them my application. They asked about my hours I indicated on my application. Then one of the ladies took me to the back of the small for an interview. They asked me a few questions. Then she told me about the store and herself! We really hit it off! She said she would call my references because I didn't have any job experience but I'm not even sure if she really did call my references. She said I would here by Tuesday if I got the job. On Monday, she called me for the job offer and I accepted!

    Interview Details

    I applied in store at Charlotte Russe and that same week I received a call from the assistant manager for an interview. The position was seasonal, so there was a group interview with me and about 10 other girls. The store manager took us to the stock room in the back, which was kind of cramped and we sat in some deformed circle. She asked us a question and she went around the room as each of is gave our answers. I was always last thankfully, so I got to work off everyone else's answers. I believe the entire process of waiting and answering questions took about 45mins to an hour.

    Interview Details

    Turned in my application and got a call a few days later asking if I can come in for an interview the following Sunday. It was a group interview with five other people, simple questions. I actually didn't feel as though I did that well, but I got a call back in a day or two telling me to come in for new employee orientation. Most of the girls from my interview got hired in fact.
