Sales Associate Interview

Sales Associate
New York, NY

I applied in-person and the process took a day - interviewed 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.

I applied online and the process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at Cole Haan.

Interview Details – 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

Store Manager

I applied through a recruiter and the process took 3 weeks - interviewed 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 Question – 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.

Freelancer Interview

Freelancer
New York, NY

I applied through a staffing agency - interviewed at Cole Haan in October 2013.

Interview Details – One interview with two designers, one was the manager. They were both very professional, had good questions, and followed up with me as they said they would.

Interview Question – What category did I prefer working with the most? Dangerous question, because, they are hoping you'll say what they need the most.   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – Went through an agency, so they probably paid twice as much as I got from the agency..oh well, but it was great to work with them, even at a reduced rate.
