In our store it was all of the non-commissioned customer service areas. Women's, men's, children's, shoe's, home. The nice thing is that people could be scheduled in other departments to help out, the bad thing is that when customers asked questions the company looks like it doesn't train it's associates. "Sorry I don't know how to fit your son for a dress shirt, I normally work in women's" doesn't fly with the customer.

So the company has designed an interactive group interview and then a personal interview after. It is a great behavioral interview which let's you see how canidates will interact with people they don't know. However, if there isn't enough people in a group they just do one-on-one interviews.
At my store we continuously hired and tried to get people in for interviews as soon as they applied instead of waiting for a group, so most interviews we're one-on-one. We hired at minimum wage when even the local dollar stores were hiring $2 above minimum wage so we had to get people hired before anyone else called them.

It stays within the business casual range however the company tends to change it every few years. When you get hired they will go over it with you, and when it changes they go over the changes, plus the company has an employee website and they have all the company policies on the website so you can access it any time.
