I applied through an employee referral. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Aritzia (Seattle, WA) in December 2014.
The interview was brief, and to the point. No curveballs or difficult questions. She asked me a few questions and then explained the details of working at Aritzia. My interview may have been slightly different than average, because I had been recruited. There was only one interview, and I was able to start working right away.

I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Aritzia (New York, NY).
The application is online, and they get back to you generally within a week. It was easy setting up an interview time, and they asked questions such as "tell me about yourself", "why aritzia" and other general sales associate questions. Super friendly!

I applied online. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Aritzia.
Rather like high school. Very fake. Made catty remarks. Kept saying for me to be myself but also made it seem like she was judging me. She was beautiful but she also came off as a gold digger. Carrying a prada bag was a big mistake she seemed to like me more once she saw it.

I interviewed at Aritzia in July 2013.
I recently had my interview with Aritzia for a management position. Still have one more round of interviews to go. The people that interviewed me were all very friendly and it made the interview much easier. It was very professional and they answered all the questions and concerns I had with the company. From what I witnessed from people walking back and forth in the background, the atmosphere was very casual but everyone kept their heads down and nose to the grind. Seems like a good company to work for but we'll have to see if I get the position!
- First round is pretty general. Stuff like tell me about yourself, what do you know about our company and other basic behavioral type questions. Second round goes more in depth about your experience. Be prepared to give lots of examples of how you excelled in your previous job. Answer Question

I applied through a recruiter. The process took a week. I interviewed at Aritzia (New York, NY) in December 2012.
Aritizia had been recruiting me through LinkedIn and email for over a year. I finally decided to meet with the hiring manager. She asked me a lot about my average sales, but working at retail where sales were not tracked, it was hard to give her an average. I expressed that most of my experience was with restocking and merchandising and that is what I would be most interested in, but she nonetheless, hired me on the spot for a sales associate position. With my brief experience with the company, I think she honestly just had a quota to meet. Aritzia is all about numbers.
- What is your average sales per hour? Answer Question
Yes, I was offered a position at the end of a short interview with an above average hourly rate.

I applied online. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Aritzia (Paramus, NJ) in June 2012.
I applied online for a summer job for the new store that was opening in a nearby mall. I was invited to a group interview with the store manager and her assistant. It was an incredibly unpleasant experience, seeing as the two interviewers spent the entire time giggling with each other as our group attempted to answer their questions. At one point, it seemed like they were mocking us - it felt very high-school to me and I did not feel comfortable with the way they were treating us.
- We were asked to describe our style and why we wanted to work for the store, as well as our personal policies for quality customer service. Answer Question
Reasons for Declining
I received a much better offer from a different store. Even if I hadn't, I probably still wouldn't have accepted this job, considering the managerial staff seemed catty and unprofessional during the interview. It was very disappointing.

I applied online. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Aritzia (Toronto, ON (Canada)).
I applied online, got an interview shortly afterwards at their Toronto office on Spadina. There were many girls being interviewed that day by a few senior staff members. The woman who interviewed me was nice enough but I could tell that some of the less extroverted girls were very uncomfortable, even in the waiting room. I was very familiar with the company so I probably knew the right answers to the questions, but in general they were very easy non specific interview questions (i.e. "tell me about yourself", "why aritzia" etc.)

I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at Aritzia (Toronto, ON (Canada)) in August 2015.
Interview itself was very laid back, I got the meet and greet through a recruiter. The lady who interviewed me was the store manager and it lasted about 10 minutes. Questions were basic although I felt like there were specific answers she wanted. Overall, easy interview and it definitely helps if you do some research of the company beforehand and are interested latest trends in fashion. Currently waiting for the district manager to contact me back for the second interview.
