Model/Sales Associate Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate  in  Miami, FL
Anonymous Interview Candidate in Miami, FL
Application Details

I interviewed through a recruiter. The process took 3 days - interviewed at Gilly Hicks.

Interview Details

Sometimes you will be recruited by a manager or another sales associate within the store and will ask you to complete an online application or you can go into the store and fill out an application on a computer; it takes about 15 minutes to fill out the application but make sure you have your desired hours to work already planned out to make the process easier & faster. After that they tell you to come in on either a Tuesday or Friday for the interview.
Interviews are in group form and they ask you to describe their store/company style, what diversity means to you, and to describe yourself; they'll also chat with you about yourself to get a better feeling of who you are as a person. It's good to dress nicely, not too casual, but you don't need to wear a suit either. Appearance-wise, make sure you show off your best physical features and try not to wear too much crazy makeup or seem to outrageous--Keep everything natural-looking basically. Women are hired as models (sales associate) or impactors but males can only work as impactors.

    I interviewed in-person. The process took a day - interviewed at Gilly Hicks.

    Interview Details

    I was recruited in the store by a manager and she gave me a private interview right away even though I heard they usually hold group interviews. We went out into the mall and basically just chatted for 15 minutes. It didn't seem like an interview. She hired me on the spot and then I was given a free uniform.

    I interviewed through a recruiter. The process took a day - interviewed at Gilly Hicks.

    Interview Details

    Pre-req's: come to the interview wearing clothing as close to the current AAA's (employee uniforms) as possible. If you're unsure, your best bet is something similar to dark-wash jeans, a fancy white tank, and flip flops or neutral chucks. If you were recruited, you will more than likely be hired. The hiring process is heavily based on your looks, honestly.

    Group interview: simple. The manager asks questions and you answer. Be FRIENDLY. SMILEY. They love them bubbly associates.

    Questions asked were things like, "How would you describe yourself?" (outgoing, friendly, organized) "How would your friends describe you? (personable, agreeable)"How would you describe the company?" (comfy, classy) "What is diversity to you?" (being different) "Why is it important?" (we want to reach out to everyone!) "Tell me a time you helped an unsatisfied customer"

    When they ask you if you have any questions for them at the end, it's always great to ask them what they love about working at the company.

    I heard back from the manager a day after my interview, but it can take up to a month for them to contact you, I've heard.

    Good luck!

    Application Details

    interviewed at Gilly Hicks in December 2009.

    Interview Details

    I was recruited from my college and was asked to come on a Friday. It was a group interview about 8 people total. The type of questions they asked were about diversity and they'd give you a scenario and ask what you would do. After the interview I got a call about 2 days later and accepted the job. Afterwards they give you a date of when to go in for your orientation and its paid so thats good.

    I interviewed through a recruiter - interviewed at Gilly Hicks in November 2010.

    Interview Details

    Interviews were based on choosing a time during the application process to be talked to in groups. Questions involved your views on success, diversity, workplace environment, have you had previous work experience, etc. If hired you get to choose your availability every two weeks online and they provide your work clothes (the cost is deducted from your paycheck).

    Dress in "Abercrombie" type clothes...Jeans and a cute top are perfectly acceptable as this is a more laid-back casual store and atmosphere.

    Interview Details

    Got recruited whilst shopping in a mall, exchanged details and was asked to come in for a 'casual' interview a couple days later. It was a group interview with 5 other girls (1 applying for impact and the rest applying for model) and we each got 3 interview questions followed by a talk on their 'looks' policy.
