    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Diesel (Boston, MA) in August 2013.

    Interview

    Resume or CV is delivered to the store, the area HR rep and the Area Manager. The initial interview was with the Store Manager. The interview lasted roughly 45 mins beginning with questions regarding my past employment along with successes and struggles with those companies. I detailed practices and initiatives that I engineered and in-acted while at my former companies and discussed my opinions and objectives for the role. We concluded discussing my vision for the business and what I look for in a potential sales associate.

    A week later I had a phone interview with the Area HR Manager and Area Store Manager. Many questions were similar to the initial interview with exception to questions regarding my training and teaching practices for my employees. the interview lasted about 30 mins.

    Interview Questions

    • What are your three worst qualities and why should we see them as a positive?   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    There was marginal negotiations as it was an interior promotion. I would suggest for anyone to push the offer a little but not to expect huge jumps.

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 5 weeksinterviewed at Diesel (San Francisco, CA).

    Interview

    The interview process is broken into 3 parts.
    First there is a group interview with other potential candidates. A general Q&A and introductions is how this interview begins. As you progress further, there is some slight role-playing where one person is a salesperson and the other is a customer. You end this interview singing a song about yourself using a predetermined group of words.

    The second interview is done with a manager within the department you applied to. Cut and dry interview. You proceed to do more role-playing as someone who works there.

    The final interview is with the store manager who asks you more questions and determines whether or not you might be a good fit for the company.

    The entire process took about a month and a half.

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took a dayinterviewed at Diesel (New York, NY) in April 2012.

    Interview

    When I Interview for Diesel, the recruiter failed to mention via email who my interviewer was or what type of interview was it going to be. Unexpectedly, I showed up to a competitive group interview of 20-30 other candidates. During the interview, the recruiter would have you work together in groups to demonstrate leadership skills.

    Interview Questions

    • The interviewer would have you present a scenario with 4-5 team players to showcase the best sales experience.   Answer Question

    Interview

    1. HR Contact
    2. Account Director Contact
    3. Interview with Account Executives for relevant team

    The interview process was extremely short. I was contacted by HR who then forwarded me to the Director for the account. I had a phone interview for basic screening and then a pretty informal in person interview with the team. Overall one of the easiest interviews I have experienced.

    (Translated from English)

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 1+ weekinterviewed at Diesel (Berlin (Germany)).

    Interview

    Ich gab meinen Lebenslauf persönlich ab und wurde kurz darauf zu einem persönlichen Gespräch eingeladen. Dies lief sehr locker ab. Zunächst hatte ich ein Gespräch mit dem Geschäftsleiter über meine bisherige Berufserfahrung, meinen persönlichen Verkaufsstil, etc. Danach sollte ich ein Outfit für einen bestimmten Anlass auswählen. Es lief gut, sodass ich für einen Probearbeitstag eingeladen wurde, an dem ich vier Stunden im Verkaufsraum arbeitete.

    I personally dropped my resume at the store and was called shortly after for a personal interview. This way very easy-going. First I had a chat with the store manager about my previous work experience, my personal way of selling, etc. Afterwards I should select an outfit for a certain occassion. It went well, so I was invited to a test day where I worked on the shop floor for 4h.

    Interview Questions
