    Application Details

    I interviewed through other source. The process took 1 week - interviewed at The Children's Place.

    Interview Details

    I was heavily recruited and finally met with the DM about upcoming position for new store manager. I felt my interview with the DM was breeze ( more a conversation), their was no Regional Manager available so I had a phone interview with HR. I got a call immediately following my phone interview with an offer.

    Interview Questions
    • I have never been asked about my family during an interview. It was off the record of course but it was genuine and felt as if they appreciated associates/leaders that understand family is important and a key role in their success.   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    upfront I expressed that I was very happy and i would not leave for anything less that a set amount. I was offered $1.5 more an hour and was pleased that before my job had started that my leader would go to bat for me.

    I interviewed online. The process took 1+ week - interviewed at The Children's Place.

    Interview Details

    The first call was from the HR recruiter who was very professional and pleasant. It was a very nice interview where it looks like we were sharing experiences. She ask me so many questions (behavior/operational) that I don't remember all of them but I do know that I talked more than I usually do.

    Interview Questions
    • It came when I had a face to face interview with the District Manager. He asked me about the companies that I have work before and when I started to answer the question he suddenly started talking about the company he had work for. It was a very awkward conversation because I ended up asking him question to keep the 'conversation' flowing.   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    We have considered to offer you $$$.
    (It was $2,000 more than the minimum that I requested therefore I accepted the offer)

    Easiest interview ever. A lot of situational but basic questions. All they really want to know is how much crap you can do in a small amount of time.

    Application Details

    I interviewed through a recruiter. The process took 1 week - interviewed at The Children's Place in March 2012.

    Interview Details

    First two interviews I had were over the phone with two different district managers the third interview was in person with the district manager and regional manager. I was recruited by a district manager and asked to apply online, the application has a personality test that tales at least 30-45 minutes and it is ridiculous to try and post your resume. I received a call a few hours after I submitted my application and that was my first phone interview, it was about 30 minutes long.
