If you would prefer to search and apply for jobs through Ann Taylor's hiring website, you are certainly welcome to do that as well. If you do choose that method of application, don't forget to come back and tell us about the application so we can help you keep your job search organized.
If you want to get a job at Ann Taylor, you will need to apply online -- no paper applications are being accepted at this time.
Before you can apply for a position online, you will need to create an account on their hiring site. Creating an account is simple, and requires only a username and a password. This is extremely convenient, especially when compared to the lengthy registration process that many employers put you through.
Once you create your profile, you will have the opportunity to upload your resume. If you have a resume prepared, you should definitely take advantage of this opportunity, as the system will automatically pull out key components of the resume and pre-populate many of the fields in the online application for you. This is a great feature, and a real time-saver. If you don't have a resume, don't worry -- you can still enter in all of your information manually.
The bulk of the application is designed to collect your personal information. You will need to provide your name, address, phone number, email address, level of education, and work experience. You must provide at least one previous employer to proceed beyond the employment history section.
After you enter all of your personal information, you will need to take an assessment. Ann Taylor estimates that the assessment will take you about 30 minutes to complete, so you should make sure that you will have that much time to dedicate to the application before you begin.
You will have a maximum of 50 seconds to answer each question during the assessment. The questions are designed to learn more about you, so Ann Taylor can determine whether or not you would make a good fit with their organization. To give you an idea of what to expect, here are a few example questions:
"If you are made an offer, what will be the primary factor in your decision to accept?"
"How much do you get done in a day?"
"When people ask you questions, how do you know what the person wants, what they are really getting at?"
"When others ask you to do things you consider wrong, what do you do?"
The assessment can be mentally draining at times, but do your best to stay focused. You should always do your best to answer each question honestly, but if you are stuck on a particular question, take a moment to think about why Ann Taylor has chosen to ask it. What are they trying to learn about you through the question?
After you complete the assessment, you will have the opportunity to provide up to three references. At the very least, you must provide their name, phone number, and length of time that you have known them. Entering at least one reference is required. Professional references are preferred, but personal references are ok as well if you don't have any work history.
At the end of the application, you will have the chance to upload your resume and cover letter. If you have these documents prepared, you should definitely upload them. It can be hard to stand out through a standardized job application, and a carefully crafted resume and cover letter can help you present yourself in the best light.
If you apply through StartWire, we'll provide you with automatic updates on your application status. You'll always know if an application has been read, and if you're still being considered for the position you've applied for. Sign up now
