    Application Details

    I applied in-person. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Cotton On in January 2014.

    Interview Details

    I applied in person. I was told to come in a week later in which I had a group interview. That was very odd to me but it went fine. Then I was told by the hiring manager that she wanted me to interview for a management position. I got a call the following week to come in for an interview with the GM. The interview was a one-on-one with just the GM. I felt like it went smooth and was told I was going to get a call back within a two weeks. After two weeks I called and inquired about the position. I explained I never got a call back the position even though I was told that I would be notified either way. The assistant manager told me that the manager would call me back within the week. A week went by so I called again and was told that the position was already filled. I was confused on how I applied for a entry level position and was asked to apply for an upper level position and never got either one. And never got a call back. It seemed very unorganized and very unprofessional.

    Key Holder Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Miami, FL
    Application Details

    I applied in-person. The process took a dayinterviewed at Cotton On in December 2013.

    Interview Details

    I was hired on the spot, though my case was a bit different in that there were people from corporate there and I was dressed up in a suit asking if there were positions available. I think the manager was kind of forced to interview me on the spot simply to show that she could do it in front of her employers. The offer was extended that same day via email and a day or so later I completed my paper work to be hired.

    Interview Questions
    • There were no difficult questions. Why Cotton On? What previous retail experience do you have? How have you taught another person and how did they respond to your coaching? Basic Supervisor questions.   View Answer

    Interview Details

    It was a group interview. Asked basic questions such as why I wanted to work there, why I like the clothing, etc. Very laid back and the hiring manager was very friendly. I was called back with a job offer, but declined due to the fact that it wasn't certain that I would be hired on for a permanent job.
