I interviewed at Aritzia in July 2013.
Interview Details –
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!
Interview Question – 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 online and the process took 2 days - interviewed at Aritzia in May 2013.
Interview Details – 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.
Interview Question – 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
Reason 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.
Very Easy Interview
I applied through a recruiter and the process took 1 week - interviewed at Aritzia in February 2013.
Interview Details – 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.
Interview Question – What is your average sales per hour? Answer Question
Negotiation Details – Yes, I was offered a position at the end of a short interview with an above average hourly rate.

Interview Details – Spotted in store, approached for an interview. Interviewed on the spot with 3 managers, asked several easy questions.
Negotiation Details – It's a basic level job, don't expect much. I got paid $11 an hour which is fine.
The process took 6 months - interviewed at Aritzia.
Interview Details – Interview process was slow, taking months to complete and met with 5 people on 5 different occasions. I realized later this was because they are not only slow to make decisions, but because they continued to have change in leadership as well.
Interview Question – I was asked if I was able to follow a specific format for how to get things done. I thought the question was odd. View Answer
Negotiation Details – The negotiating phrase was frustrating because I wasn't dealing with the hiring manager, and leadership was in transition. Also, they wanted to negotiate severance pay at this time, which I found alarming (and later realized why).
