Plato's Closet is always looking for the cutest, most popular outfits; dress stylish (and fit your personality) to show how trendy and fashion forward you are.

I was a Manager for quite a while, and my interviews started with a phone call that asked a few questions pertaining to detailed availability, retail experience (not that you need it, it is just nice to have), and what your long term goal is in your career. After that it was an in person interview. I asked for interviewees to wear trendy clothing that you would wear on a dressy casual day. (Jeans with ripps were totally good!) I ran a very laid back interview in which I just got a feel for your intelligence level, work ethic, and went over your references that I previously called and asked what you might have thought they said about you to see if you knew how others perceive you because how customers perceive you is key in becoming successful in retail. If you came across as a complainer, someone that would be late, or someone that didn't seem dependable, the interview was over. If I felt you would be a good addition to the team, I would have you pick out two outfits (one mens and one womens) to get a feel for your style awareness. If it was good, I knew I could possibly consider you for a buyer position in the future. If I offered you the job we would start you on a three week trial so we could get a feel on whether we were a good fit for each other. If any drama arose, I would immediately let you go. Or if you didn't actually find that it was a good fit for you, you could leave without 2 weeks notice.

Hope this was helpful!

P.S. If your application wasn't filled out completely, you had more than 5 jobs in the last 2 years, or you gave less than the three required references, your application went immediately to the NO pile. I was looking for dedicated long term employees that I could eventually promote and train to be consistantly great.

Don’t be nervous. The interview is super layed back, quick and simple. Personally my interviewer was super sweet and made it like a nice conversation. The interview wasn’t super sophisticated it was more just of a get to know me type of thing.

You could wear/look any way you want. BUT the district managers made it very clear that they preferred people with no tattoos or piercings and favored employees who did not have them.

They require you to be on the same payroll as everyone else there so no.
