    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Crate and Barrel (Toronto, ON) in November 2019.

    Interview

    My interview process went well. I applied online for their hiring event, and went to the event to apply in store too. I also had employee referral and was greeted by an assistant manager immediately and had a casual, relaxed interview. The interview took place in-store on the sales floor. They asked me a few questions about myself, and typical customer service/retail questions and scenarios. I was hired on the spot.
