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!

    Interview Details

    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.

    Application Details

    I interviewed online. The process took 2 days - interviewed at Aritzia in June 2012.

    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 Questions
    • 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.

    Sales Associate Interview

    Application Details

    I interviewed through a recruiter. The process took 1 week - interviewed at Aritzia in December 2012.

    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.

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

    Interview Details

    Highly recommended to get a referral from someone who already works there. Dress stylish and show your smarts and personality. I had 2 interviews: one with the associate manager and one with the store manager. Asked what my personal style is, what trends i like and to demonstrate selling my own handbag. I was hired on the spot.

    I dropped off my resume at Aritzia, and received a call the next day to schedule an interview. Went in a week later to speak with the Floor Manager and was asked a few questions. The conversation was very pleasant, and we chatted for a while about my resume and other random things.
