    Overall they rushed you in pretty quickly - expecting you to know the in's and out's. Asking questions is not praised, sell and do your job. Overall they rushed you in pretty quickly - expecting you to know the in's and out's. Asking questions is not praised, sell and do your job.

    Very easy. Some questions about yourself, your ability to engage with customers and to use your intuition for fashion styling and fit. Lots on emphasis on denim (they are a denim company) and your ability to advise customers on their choices. Overall, be yourself and keep it casual, they’ll love that.

    Interview

    Very casual and nice; sat at the back of the store and talked about basic interview stuff, like style and why I want to work there. The demand for store associates at this specific store was high, so the interview was fairly easy and straightforward.

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Madewell.

    Interview

    The interview was on a couch at the back of the store. I had to go to two interviews for this job, so be prepared for the hiring process to take a while. For my first interview, I was with another candidate and we each had to take turns answer the questions. The second interview was a few weeks later, and it was a one-on-one interview. The first interview had more of a focus on what we knew about the company and fashion in general, but there were a few questions about ourselves. The second interview was more questions about my work experience and why I thought I would be a good fit for the position.

    Interview

    I was invited into the store for an in-person interview. The manager did not mention ahead of time that it would be a group interview, with another candidate being interviewed with me. I would've appreciated knowing this up front, and it did not leave me wanting to work for them.
