I applied back in the summer for this position, after weeks of getting email requests every few days asking me to apply. Once I did, crickets. Nothing. I also looked on Claire's website at open jobs, and nowhere could I find any mention of this position. (You may have more luck with a response if you post this in the merchandising forum)
Claires did take it in house. There are still openings available. They may not be where you live. I can pull your application if I had your name and tell you if anything is available near you. These are part time employee positions.
