    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 applied through a recruiter. The process took a weekinterviewed 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.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2 daysinterviewed 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.

    Interview Details

    Applied online and recieved an email about a week later saying that I had an interview with the store manager in two days. I went in and I guess the manager was unaware that she was interviewing people that day. Long story short, I ended up reapplying in person and haven't heard back yet.

    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 daysinterviewed at Aritzia in November 2014.

    Interview Details

    I went into Aritzia to browse like usual and struck up a conversation with one of the employees there, this lead to chatting with several employees. I mentioned how I would enjoy working there and they all encouraged me to apply. That night I received a text about an interview the next day. I didn't get a response on the time so I went in the next day and asked about the interview. The manager didn't have time but wanted to interview me, so we did a impromptu interview that was 5-10 minutes long. She was very understanding since I told her I would not be able to work Boxing Day - early January, which is a blackout period. She would have hired me on the spot, but we concluded that she would talk to the HR department, and I would either start ASAP until Boxing Day, or start in January when I returned. Either way I was offered a position on the spot. I'm not sure if I was considered an in-store application, or employee referral, as the girl I had met that day personally "referred" me to the manager though I didn't know her.

    *I did wear Aritzia clothing, not sure whether or not that makes a difference. I suspect that through observation (unless you apply online) they have pretty much decided whether or not they'll hire you before the interview based on your first impression (aka style haha)

    Interview Questions
    • I was only asked one question other than availability, etc.
      Tell me about yourself?

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 daysinterviewed at Aritzia.

    Interview Details

    My friend who works at aritzia referred me for a job. Manager called me and asked for me to come in for an interview the next day. Waited in the seating area of the store for about 15 minutes until she was finished with her tasks. Interview was very easy and relaxed. Made her laugh a few times and felt it was going well. She hired me on the spot. What you are wearing is very important and I feel she decided whether she was going to hire me before we even talked. I wore all aritzia clothing and I think it played a big factor into me getting the job. Only complaint is that while I was waiting all the sales associates working were giving very dirty looks. Other than that a great experience!

    Interview Questions
    • Nothing too unexpected. What inspired you to become interested in fashion, how would you describe your personal style, tell me about yourself etc.   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    No negotiation. She asked what I was being paid at my current job and I said $11/hr. She offered me $13/hr and I excepted.

    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3 daysinterviewed at Aritzia in October 2014.

    Interview Details

    A friend provided a recruiter with my information, and I was as contacted by e-mail to meet for an interview. A couple days later I met up with the recruiter and we chatted for no longer than 5-10 minutes. It was fairly casual with basic interview questions like "tell me about yourself, etc." I got hired on the spot.

    You need to show personality and dress fashion forward. You do not necessarily have to wear Aritzia's clothes to get hired (as others have stated), you just need to "look Aritzia."

    Interview Questions
    Negotiation Details
    She asked which locations were most convenient for me and what I was expecting for pay. I got my desired location and pay.
