I applied through an employee referral and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Guess? in March 2009.
Interview Details – First had me fill out a bunch of paperwork in the main lobby. I met with the hiring manager in a conference room. He preceded to ask me a whole bunch of difficult scenario questions. He jotted down each of my answers. It took about 30 min. But it was tough. Weakness, strengths, how would you get a long with others.

I applied in-person and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Guess?.
Interview Details – Went in the flagship store and asked for an application from the hiring manager. He was so nice too. I filled in the application and gave it in the next day. Before I knew it, I was asked to come in for an interview. It went okay, it was a group interview. The second time they called I was so surprised I was asked to come in again. Still no offer I'm still in the waiting game. But remember to follow up

District Manager Interview (Negative Experience; Average Interview)
I applied through an employee referral and the process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at Guess? in August 2012.
Interview Details – I was contacted by a Regional Manager who I had a thorough phone interview with. Then I had a thorough (and typical) interview with HR. The Regional stayed in contact with me and both said that they were very interested in me and wanted to have a face to face interview and compare me with one other candidate. 2 weeks went by and they finally returned my call saying that they weren't going to interview me but instead they hired they other candidate.
Sales Associate Interview (Positive Experience; Easy Interview)
I applied through an employee referral and the process took 2 days - interviewed at Guess? in June 2011.
Interview Details – I thought that I was the best in the group interview, however i neer got a call back so I called them repetitively and they kept giving excuses that there were too many events going on so they couldn't contact their interviewers. Horrible.

Retail Sales Associate Interview (Neutral Experience; Average Interview)
I applied in-person and the process took 3 days - interviewed at Guess? in June 2011.
Interview Details – Most places I apply to either take forever to call you back, or after the interview take forever and/ or sometimes never to call you back.
I turned in my application to the store on paper after asking for the application all in the same day, and the next day someone called to set up an interview for a week later.
The interview was held outside of the store, at a table in the Shops of Wailea. The first thing she did was ask me if I was still in school, implying that I look really young.
First off she asked, do you like Guess?, very casually, and so I replied "Of course!" and how they are my style, but that was it, expecting that they would ask 'Why am I applying to Guess' later in the interview. I never got another chance to express my passion and desire to work there, so maybe that's what impeded my chances. I have no retail experience, and she asked about my last job and responsibilities. She asked a few behavioral and situational questions, and she even asked, "How long would it be before you greet someone in the store?"
At the end of the interview she told me that she felt it was a very good interview and she said she felt it went really well.
The next day they called to say they hired another person. Although I didn't get the job I was appreciative they called me back so soon to let me know. Some companies here are so rude and unprofessional. Others would say they would call you to let you know their decision, but they all just leave you hanging, not giving you the courtesy to let you know they went in another direction.
At first I thought they didn't hire me because they thought I was too young. I called to ask and the answerer told me since they didn't interview they didn't know, but that it must have been to no fault of mine, and that I was probably ideal as well, just a conflict of availability, or sales experience or not.
Later, when I went shopping there one day, and there working was a new girl, ironically someone my age that I went to school with for years with.
Store Manager Interview (Neutral Experience; Average Interview)
I applied in-person and the process took a day - interviewed at Guess? in November 2010.
Interview Details – When I sat down, the interviewer seemed not very interested. She made small talk for a while and did not ask preformance based questions. I had a lenghthy phone interview 5 weeks prior. She did not reach out to confirm the one on one that we going to have. I still showed up that day. I got the vibe that she may have chosen someone else for the position but did not want to tell me so she just went through with it. That was my impression.
Sales Associate Interview (Neutral Experience; Easy Interview)
I applied through other source and the process took 6 days - interviewed at Guess? in March 2011.
Interview Details – I just had the interview today, and the manager who interviewed said we would hear back by her by the end of the week. Overall the interview was simple. There were about seven girls, some of which had just walked into the store to fill out an application, and were given interviews on the spot. She stated that Guess was looking for a person that "looked" the part, and could be their ultimate 'Guess Girl". Since the questions she asked weren't pertaining to the job itself, im assuming she will be giving 2nd interviews based off appearance mostly.
