    Assistant Designer Interview

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 1 week - interviewed at Elie Tahari.

    Interview Details

    This is for Tahari ASL, not Elie Tahari. Went on a interview there and was asked to come in to work for three trial days - without pay or stipend offered at all. The tasks were simple enough but management seemed very all over the place. Unorganized and work space was very cramped.

    Interview Questions
    • Kind of unusual that I was asked to work for free for a few days as a trial run. Should have at least offered to cover travel expenses especially since I was not from the city at the time.   Answer Question

    Store Manager Interview

    Application Details

    I applied through other source. The process took 1+ week - interviewed at Elie Tahari in February 2014.

    Interview Details

    I was interview by the Area Manager who is over the territory. She was very bright & courteous. I have been interviewed by Executives, VPs and CEOs and I have to say this was probably one of the most professional and in-depth interviews that I have had.
    I was then called for a second interview with her Manager which was also a good experience. Elie Tahari has the right people in these positions.

    Interview Questions
    • Really, no hard questions if you had the experience that they were looking for. You could just tell that they wanted the "right" fit.   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    Salary is a little less than what I wanted, but they have a strong bonus structure and a great clothing allowance. As well as, I liked the people interviewing me who I would be working for, which is invaluable to me.

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Elie Tahari.

    Interview Details

    HR contacted me via Linkedin. The process was very positive. After meeting in person with HR, I had to schedule a follow-up interview with senior management. I came back for an in-person interview with that person as well.

    Interview Questions
    • Neither the HR person nor the senior manager had a lot of experience in the position I was interviewing for. I supplied a lot of numerical data to prove my success in previous companies.   Answer Question

    Interview Details

    Must have portfolio. Quite easy interview process. Managers have no idea about design so when they hire they dont even ask questions. They only want to look at pictures.

    I applied online - interviewed at Elie Tahari.

    Interview Details

    I got a call for a phone interview. Next I met with members of the team, haven't heard anything so I thought I didn't get the job. Two weeks later I was called back in to meet the team. The supervisor was traveling so I had a meeting scheduled with her a week later. Another week after that I was called in to meet an executive I was going to support. Heard I got the job 3 days later
