Sales Associate Interview

Sales Associate
Cabazon, CA

I applied in-person and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Calvin Klein in October 2010.

Interview Details – Interview was very short, about ten minutes. They did not call references. I was hired right before the Christmas season, so I bet the interview process would be lengthier at a different time of the year. They told me that they never interviewed people who just dropped off resumes, only people who came in and asked to speak to a manager and had their application ready.

Negotiation Details – no negotiations. I asked what everyone else got paid and it was the same across the board.

Interview Details – 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.

Sales Associate Interview

Sales Associate

I applied in-person and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Calvin Klein in April 2013.

Interview Details – One manager interviewed me in the back, asked me about working with customers and helping them. My friend referred me to the store, and I needed two letters of recommendation to give to the managers. I'm not sure if they do the letters of recommendation anymore. A resume was also required. The store hires many high school-college aged students.
