    Assistant General Manager Interview

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took a weekinterviewed at Burberry.

    Interview Details

    I applied online, and shortly afterwards received a phone call to set up an interview on a Monday at 2 PM. I arrived at the store and was greeted by an associate who went to tell the manager I had arrived. The associate returned and told me the manager was on the phone, and I should wait on the customer bench. I waited there for another 10 minutes. Another employee came up and introduced herself as the floor supervisor. She gave me a paper application, clipboard and pen and told me to sit on the bench and complete the application. I did so, then proceeded to wait as she and other associates walked past me, focusing on tasks like filling the floor. The associates did not seem happy and were not engaging with customers at all. When it reached 2:30, a full half hour after my interview time, I got up to leave. The first associate asked if I was all set and I told her "Please tell the GM the interview was for 2:00. If she respect me as an applicant, I don't expect she would respect me as an employee. I then left the store.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took a weekinterviewed at Burberry in September 2013.

    Interview Details

    After a lengthy telephone interview, I met with two managers with the Seattle Premium Outlets Burberry store. Their personalities were complimentary but did not fit the "typical" overeager, hyper salesperson for a high end store. They impressed me with the package offered!!! After being out of retail for several years, I was amazed. The store itself was nicely packaged and the sales associates were friendly.

    I applied online – interviewed at Burberry.

    Interview Details

    Because I could not make it into the office, I was able to have my interview via Skype. It lasted about 30 minutes, with basic questions about past experiences, how I handle stressful situations, etc. Prior to the questions and answers, I was given an extensive overview of the position and company overall. The interview was both informative and helpful.
