    Average Interview

    Application

    The process took 6 days. I interviewed at Calvin Klein (Fort Myers, FL) in April 2015.

    Interview

    Manager found my resume on job board and contacted me via email. Interviewed with her later that same week. Interview lasted two hours and included the typical interview as well as a questionnaire that evaluates your honesty/morality. I'm female and I wore a black t-shirt with a black cardigan, dark denim, and black shoes. Minimal jewelry and natural makeup and hair. Dress code for the store is all black, so I wouldn't recommend wearing denim. Questionnaire is tricky, be very cautious when taking it. It is also timed.

    • Have you ever had to deal with a difficult customer?   Answer Question
    • Two of your friends at work ask you to help them steal something, would you do it? If no, how would you convince them not to steal?   1 Answer
    • Do you typically root for the villain?   1 Answer

    Negotiation

    I was able to negotiate my salary. Just be confident in what your worth but also understand salaries are by the volume of the store and they need to stay in the green after paying you. Just ask what the pay scale would look like for someone with your level of experience. If the manager really likes you they'll fight for the rate you ask for.

    I applied online. I interviewed at Calvin Klein.

    Interview

    It was pretty straight forward. Obviously, the more holidays you can work the better and they are looking for you to work weekends. They want to make sure you are able to communicate with customers and provide quality customer service. Do not apply for a job of you can work less than 4 days a week.

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Calvin Klein in October 2014.

    Interview

    I was contacted by a recruiter via LinkedIn. I had a brief phone interview with them at a scheduled time. Based on this interview we scheduled a time for me to come in for a first interview with the woman whom would be my direct manager in Print Production. When I arrived for the first interview I spoke with the recruiter for approximately 20 minutes. Then the woman came in and we spoke for about 10 minutes. At this point we decided to have a second interview. For the second interview I would be meeting the VP of Print Production. I spoke with this woman for about 5 minutes. After this the recruiter and I spoke for about 20 minutes. My problem with the process was the recruiter. He was assuring me I was a top candidate, etc. I feel like he was just wasting my time and didn't have enough guts/honesty to tell me that I wasn't exactly what they were looking for. In the end I spent most of my time talking to this recruiter, who was very nice but actually had no part in the actual hiring decision.

    Interview Questions

    • Most questions were directly related to the job posting responsibilities. I found nothing to be off the mark or extraordinary.   Answer Question

    I applied in-person. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Calvin Klein.

    Interview

    I walked in casually to see if they were hiring. Luckily, the general manager happened to be in. He handed me an application, and told me to come back for an interview. The interview went smoothly. I also took a personality questionnaire to see if I qualified for the "floor supervisor" position. I passed! And I've been employed with this company for about 3 years now.
