    Two interviews, one with both managers(both managers are very friendly and fun to talk to) first was a group interview the second was a one on one. Asked the normal question about past jobs, what I like as a customer/ associate to see happen in the store, stealing, and about yourself. The vibe is super friendly and up beat.

    I applied in-person. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Fossil in August 2014.

    Interview Details

    Applied in-store and set up an interview on the spot. Met with the assistant manager a few days later. She asked pretty standard questions; describe a time you dealt with a difficult customer, what does Fossil mean to you, what does Fossil represent, why do you want to work here...basic stuff. Then she had me demonstrate a sales experience with another worker. About a week later I got a call for a second interview with the (brand new just in this week) store manager. Met with him (outside when it was 100 plus degrees) and he just asked me the same questions and said he was trying to figure out the store and what its needs are.

    Sales Associate Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Grand Prairie, TX
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Grand Prairie, TX
    Application Details

    I applied in-person. The process took a dayinterviewed at Fossil in May 2014.

    Interview Details

    This was my first job interview ever, and it was a group interview of 4. It was not a very good one because you can tell the hiring manager was more engaged on certain people and did not give everyone a fair amount of time to talk before moving on. We interviewed in the back room of the store and employees kept coming in and out, and it was very distracting to the whole process. The interview was about an hour long because she told too many story time.

    I got a rejection email about a week later.

    I applied through other source. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Fossil.

    Interview Details

    I submitted my application and within two weeks was called for an interview. I had a pretty low-key interview within the shopping mall as the retail store, asking such questions about what customer service means to me, which other stores Fossil customers would probably be likely to shop in, etc etc.

    Negotiation Details
    No negotiations.. I was just graduating high school and was looking for a basic part-time job to fund college expenses.

    Application Details

    I applied in-person. The process took a weekinterviewed at Fossil in January 2014.

    Interview Details

    Spoke with the Store manager for less than an hour after I submitted my resume. The SM gave me a list of questions that the District Manager would ask me during my phone interview, which was unexpected. I wasn't really challenged or asked any difficult questions, but just an overview of my previous work experience.

    Negotiation Details
    I was given a firm offer which I counter-offered. There was no negotiation so I took the offer.
