I applied online sometime last week. Got a call today, & had an interview over the phone. She asked questions about Work history, scenario questions, and availability. She offered me the job and I start Monday. Not sure what to expect.

I filled out an application and received a call shortly afterwards. The interviewer called me at my day job (!) and was very difficult to understand. I answered the questions, not sure if the answers that I was giving actually fit with the questions that the interviewer was asking! I received a rejection email. Needless to say, I am very upset and disappointed.

I applied online and received a phone call shortly after. It wasn't a difficult interview but the interviewer was hard to understand. When I asked her questions about the position she would slur through a script instead of giving me straight answers. I ended up being hired on the spot but when I showed up at the store I was given a position and hours very that were different from what (I thought) the interviewer had offered me.

I applied online and in a few hours I was emailed to schedule an appointment. 2 days, later, when I got there, the store had little business and a few employees standing alone at their stations or stocking. I was on time I may add, there was nobody in the office to greet me and they seemed unprepared for my arrival, telling me I should have let someone in the back offices know that I was there waiting to be interviewed, as if I were in the wrong. It seemed weird to me that I had to do such a thing. It was 7 minutes later when a staff member came to get me for the interview. I already felt insulted and irritated, doubting if I should stay, wondering if I should even consider working for a company who treats people like they don't care at all.
It was 10 minutes, a very quick and informal process. He introduced himself, seemed nice, read questions off some papers, asking about my job experiences and working in a team. I immediatly knew I didn't get the job without even being told, even though I was well dressed and have plenty retail experience, because that I mostly worked in retail independently, so answering the team questions were difficult. He also asked me how I would convince someone to sign up for their card, which wasn't hard since I've done that at previous jobs. He asked about my availability, I said I was free, even during holidays and I joked that I could celebrate a holiday anyday. He told me that there was one more applicant he needed to interview and most of the positions were filled. After the interview. Unsurprised, I got a rejection email the next day. I'm not sure if it was the location or bad timing, but I will never consider applying again and will not recommend this place to anyone. What a waste of time.

I had a phone interview and it was very easy. The HR person reads a list of questions and asks that you answer them with a scenario that you experienced. I was hired on the spot.

IF you're lucky enough to have someone come up to inteview without complaining, it is very simple and easy to comprehend. Majority of the questions are open ended so even if you've never held a job or came from another industry, you'd be able to answer the questions based on experience or common sense.
