    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 1 dayinterviewed at Steven Madden (New York, NY) in February 2015.

    Interview

    Very nice and clear cut with what was expected of job position. Small dainty office in New York where all human resource papers were sent. I declined in the end because interviewer kept stressing the monotony of the job. Found that this was probably not the right place for me.
    However, the interviewers were really nice and understanding.

    Sales Associate Interview

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online – interviewed at Steven Madden.

    Interview

    If the store has not opened yet it will take place over the phone. Interviewer is very friendly and is looking for enthusiasm in your interview. Don't answer questions like "why did you choose Steve Madden?" With an answer like "because it's opening", you won't get the job. Be enthusiastic and know the product.
