    Application Details

    I applied in-person. The process took a dayinterviewed at Cole Haan.

    Interview Details

    I had an interview but it seemed like it was just a courtesy or for show. The HR person who interviewed me when I went to corporate didn't seem interested in me or helping my career. they had their nose in the air like I should stay at retail but that is not reflective of everyone else or the company.

    The whole interview process was pretty simple. I applied online and get a call a week later and set-up an interview. The questions were pretty simple. They do look at how your dress so dress up, show your style but nothing over the top.

    Store Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Cole Haan.

    Interview Details

    I was recruited by Cole Haan. I was not familiar with the company at that time. My first phone interview lasted over an hour and focused on my customer service skills and on how I manage people. At that time an in person interview with the District Manager was scheduled. The interview with the District Manager went well. The focus was again on customer service and management style but loss prevention was added. I had 3 more phone interviews with the area manager, HR, and the head of store operations.

    Interview Questions
    • There weren't any questions that were hard or unexpected.   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    I was offered via phone after business hours so it was theoretical. "If I was to offer you a position at this rate of pay starting on this date would you accept?" I said yes and we agreed to meet with an official letter 2 days later. I was offered what I was asking for so I didn't feel the need to negotiate.
