Social Media Intern Interview

Anonymous Employee
Los Angeles, CA

I applied online and the process took 2 months - interviewed at BCBG in March 2014.

Interview Details – You apply online, form their they will contact you whether you have the right experience or not. There was a phone interview, but they don't tell you when they're going to call. Everything is very disorganized. They call you when they have time. After the phone interview they will call you again unannounced about a 1on1 interview. If you don't get that call you or e-mail you back within two weeks you didn't pass. Once you get your interview they say they will e-mail you the next business day about your acceptance or decline (2 weeks in reality). They will call you if you get it, received a call 2 weeks later.

Interview Question – They had no questions for me, they kept talking about what they do and not what they wanted out of an intern. Make sure you know the company and what brands are under the bcbg logo. Know the designers, know the creative directors of the company, and basically understand the overall personality of the brand. How does your experience relate to what an intern at bcbg would do?   Answer Question

Interview Question – Pretty much a standard interview.   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – They pay pretty well, but they have to b/ c as you'll soon learn, it's a difficult place to work.

Design Intern Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate
Los Angeles, CA

I applied online and the process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at BCBG in March 2013.

Interview Details – I submitted my resume online and received an email later to schedule a Skype interview (since I'm not in California I guess?) The interview was pretty easy, just asked what I did before on previous internships, expectations for the job, what I ultimately want to do etc. Received an offer on the same day! yay!

Interview Question – Are you considering any other companies? (I know this is an easy one but it caught me off guard and let's be honest we all apply to TONs of places...)   Answer Question

Reason for Declining – Cali is just too far.... also the bad reviews are a little terrifying

Fabric R/D Interview

Anonymous Employee
Los Angeles, CA

I applied online and the process took 1+ week - interviewed at BCBG in January 2010.

Interview Details – multiple interviews. Sometimes making you wait in the lobby for over an hour.
The VP is the final interview, but she often misleads you to your actual job. She says you usually dont work weekends, but in my experience thats not true. Usually 4-5 saturdays a year.

Interview Question – questions are generally very easy. the more you can express about fabric knowledge - especially technical, the more $ you will get.   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – There was little to no negotiation room. its a take it or leave it mentality from BCBG. If you wont accept, their thought is 'there is always another girl waiting to get her foot in the door - and for less then we can pay you'.

For raises, they generally give you a 6-8% bump. enough to keep you hanging in, but barely livable.

Fashion Designer Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate
Los Angeles, CA

I applied through other source and the process took 2 days - interviewed at BCBG in November 2009.

Interview Details – I went through a phone interview screening with someone from Human Resources and was asked to e-mail some of my recent work examples. I was then asked to come in for an interview at their Headquarters in Vernon, CA. I met with two people from HR who were very informative and friendly. They looked over my portfolio and discussed what I was looking for and what the director felt I would be a fit for. I was then asked to prepare a special project and come back for an interview with the director. Unfortunately, I had to cancel the interview and was not given the opportunity to reschedule. They told me they had many positions open and one they had been looking for six months. I feel they were very honest and straight forward about the positives and negatives of working for their company. They didn't sugar coat things, which I appreciated.
