    Interview

    It was very comfortable and almost informal, there was one other person interviewing with me - a group interview of sorts. The store manager and an associate manager were interviewing and we all were sitting in a circle. They asked us both questions and sometimes would ask one question for one of us or they would ask the same question to us both. They wanted to know what kind of experience we had and if we were able to conduct ourselves socially, and feel comfortable talking to customers. One major point they made in our discussion was how we would handle a stressful and difficult situation, such as a distressed or angered customer. The only negative part of the experience was the not knowing an answer immediately, and actually taking several weeks before I got one. Happily it was yes, but I felt it took more time than was necessary to get back to the candidates in letting them know their status.

    Interview Questions

    • If a customer was angry about something, whether it be the product or the service they received, how would you handle such a situation in a way that would not violate the rules for treating customers and yet still provide a solution.   1 Answer

    I applied in-person. The process took a weekinterviewed at Coach in November 2014.

    Interview

    I walked in and asked if they were hiring and if I could get an application. They handed me one and invited me to fill in out in the store. Upon completing my application, I handed it to a person (not sure if she was a manager or not). She immediately asked me if I would like to come back that night for a group interview. Of course I said yes.

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took a weekinterviewed at Coach in October 2014.

    Interview

    So, on a Friday afternoon i walked into a local Coach store at my mall I'm currently working in and asked for an application. The girl handed me one and i brought it back 15 minutes later with my resume and references. She looked over my application and asked if i had previous retail experience (which i did) and asked if i speak another language ( i do: fluent in Korean and currently learning Mandarin). She said she would turn it in into the store manager and she'd give me a call. 2 days later i got a call asking if i could come in that week for an interview. At the interview she just asked me questions about my career goals, current employment, and if i was up for working with Coach. She went over the dress code and what is expected of me, by the end of the interview i basically knew i would get the job. I got a call today with an offer for a Sales Associate position!!

    I applied in-person. The process took 6 daysinterviewed at Coach (Minneapolis, MN) in September 2014.

    Interview

    I had two interviews in person and one by phone. I was asked a lot of questions about my prior employment,how I got along with co-workers, why I want to work for coach and why I like to sell. My final interview was with the district manager who was very professional and I felt she actually listened to me and cared about my answers. Just be yourself,don't fake it. If you are a true fit for Coach they will feel it and so will you.
