    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Coach in February 2014.

    Interview

    I went in the store one day after seeing a sign outside indicating, "employment opportunities." I went inside and requested an application. A couple days after I submitted my application with an attached resume. An associate made sure I filled everything out and said I would be contacted soon. I never got contacted, but about 3 weeks later I went back in and submitted an updated version of my resume. This time, an assistant manager spoke to me and instantly looked over my resume. She was somewhat impressed and I had told her that I already had submitted an application. I never left a number on my resume, so I figured I'd call back a few days later and simply follow up. The manager said they couldn't find my application and that they were still searching for it. Keep in mind, my number wasn't on the resume, but I included it on the application which they somehow had lost. The next day I got a call from the manager requesting for an interview the following week after. This indicated that they found my application since my number was included on it. The interview went well, it was a group interview with another candidate. They went straight asking to fill out an availability form and background check, to attire expectations. I'm assuming I got the job? After discussing expectations, they went on asking me questions which were expected, they also discussed a brief history of the brand. It doesn't hurt to have some knowledge about the brands history since they may discuss this and it makes you stand out. Make sure you mention customer service, they may also ask questions relating to it. Over all, it went very well, the interview lasted a little over an hour. The manager then said that they have to submit the background check before they can contact me with further details regarding obtaining a sales associate position. To end it off, they asked me if I had any questions for them which I did, my advice would be that you should probably come up with some questions before you attend the interview. After about a week, I called back in monday following up with them requesting to see if they received my background check. They said they'd call back later on in the afternoon after a conference call that was going to be held later on. Finally, I got a call offering me the job, they actually wanted to give me more hours than they wanted so they asked me if they could move me over to a different store location. Overall, great experience, and everything in the process was very formal and had a good business tone to it. Definitely would recommend for others to work here.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Coach (Austin, TX).

    Interview

    The company prefers to do group interviews so it may be some time between dropping off an application/resume and hearing from a manager. Usually they will do a small impromptu interview with you when you drop your application off. This is to see how you well you communicate, and to see your fashion sense. Depending on how quickly they need new associates you will hear back from some one within a few days to possibly two weeks. After being offered the position you will go through 1-2 weeks of training, once again depending on the need for employees. Seasonal training is much faster than any other time period.

    Interview Questions

    • You will most likely be asked to sell an item to the interviewer. This may happen as early as when you drop off your application.   1 Answer

    Negotiation

    It didn't exist. I was told I would be making slightly less than what I asked for but not given details until after I was hired. From what I understand managers have a little more room to negotiate.

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took a weekinterviewed at Coach (Wrentham, MA).

    Interview

    Very simple hiring and interview process. I went in for a day of shopping, was offered an application, filled out said application, and was called back in for an interview. After I was critiqued for not wearing the typical "black and white" (I had one a red heels with my black and white outfit) as the dress code called for, I was asked a few questions about school (I was in high school at the time) and that was that. I was called back two days later and asked to come in for training two days later.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took a weekinterviewed at Coach (Miami, FL) in November 2013.

    Interview

    I dropped in to drop off my resume and the Supervisor called the Manager to interview me on the spot. It was around Thanksgiving so they really needed the help. The interview was held right there in the store during normal business hours among the customers. All of the staff were professional and pleasant. I was nervous as the Manager was a no-nonesense one. I got through the interview and they called me back to make me an offer!

    Interview Questions

    • The Manager asked me to sell her a bag on the spot. Wasn't prepared for this at all. Especially not working or specializing in hand bags. I made a few boo boo;s but they were willing to accept and work with me!   Answer Question
