    Sales Associate Interview

    Anonymous Employee
    Declined Offer

    Interview

    Initial communications were professional, respectful of me as a potential candidate (among many possible ones), and prompt. The interview process was equally professional and was not done in a rushed or impersonal manner. It was evident that they cared that the person they hired would get along well with his/her colleagues, would take pride in his/her work and meet all expectations for professionalism.

    Payroll Coordinator Assistant Interview

    Anonymous Employee in New York, NY
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    The process took 1 dayinterviewed at Esprit (New York, NY) in June 2011.

    Interview

    Met with two separate people, the group head and the woman I would actually be the assistant to. The Group Head was very professional, asked typical questions. This part went fine, we talked for about half an hour. The woman I was to assist spent an hour and a half with me, in which I probably only spoke for 20-30 minutes. Something about me clearly bothered her, because she kept going on and on about how great she is at her job, as if trying to prove something to me. She also called me out on wearing heels 2-3 times in a very condescending tone. I'm sorry, it's an interview, aren't you supposed to wear heels?? Especially when interviewing for a fashion company? They weren't outlandish either, they were nude pumps...Was relieved I did not get an offer, it would not have worked out well for me to work directly with this awful woman.
