I applied through other source and the process took 3 weeks - interviewed 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.
I applied in-person and the process took 5 days - interviewed at Fossil in September 2013.
Interview Details – You first have to speak with the Store Manager and if that interview went well you will have second interview with the District Manager. After you have your second interview you will be contacted by the Store Manager to see if you got the position or not. Be prepared to know about the company and culture!

I applied through an employee referral - interviewed at Fossil in February 2010.
Interview Details – They make you interview first with the core members of the business, then pass you along with several other corporate managers who have no say within your actual position. Can be nerve racking at times
Interview Question – The questions are not hard if it has to do with the business you are in. Answer Question
Negotiation Details – I really wasn't able to negotiate. They didn't seem open to it. So that's why I grabbed the offer.
I applied in-person and the process took a day - interviewed at Fossil in August 2012.
Interview Details – I was sending in one of my watches when I thought, "Everyone here is pretty nice and I love watches, why not apply?" So I asked if they were hiring at the time. I was given an application, returned it in person, and was schedule for an interview via phone. Came in and had an interview in the center of the mall in those comfy chairs. I was called and offered a position a day or two later.
Interview Question – Weren't any. Was a pretty standard customer service interview. Answer Question
I applied in-person and the process took 1+ week - interviewed at Fossil in September 2013.
Interview Details – The hiring process was very simple it was a paper application which I got called back from and interviewed with one other person. From there I was invited to a panel interview with a couple other store managers and a district manager. Overall people seemed nice, interested, & professional.
Interview Question – There weren't many difficult questions as long as you know the business and how to motivate a team to sell and such. However, there were a lot of questions and all coming at once since it was a panel interview with at least 5 store managers and 1 district manager. Answer Question
Negotiation Details – Not much to negotiate since their pay is one of the best considering other retailers I know of in the Central FLA area.
I applied online and the process took 2 days - interviewed at Fossil in August 2012.
Interview Details – The interview process involved 3 phone conversations. The first and final were by the District Manager. The middle interview was performed by the Store Manager. This process was based on a newly opening store, likely not the same format for an existing location. The District Manager was clearly pumping up the company to be the greatest thing ever, almost as if she was trying to make me feel like I should be considered lucky to even be receiving consideration.
Hindsight being 20/20, I wish I picked up more on that at the time. There was also a clear emphasis on appearance and fashion. I understand there is a certain level of importance on that in Retail, but I would find out soon enough, that is about the first through fifth priorities at Fossil. That is again something I wished I would have picked up on then.
Basically, the only other point of the interview process was convincing the interviewer that you could do a lot with a little (as in, no payroll).
Interview Question – There was no difficult question. Just be prepared to talk about exceeding expectations from an allotted budgeted hours perspective. Answer Question

I applied online and the process took 3 months - interviewed at Fossil.
Interview Details – Started off with basic phone interview. Had a follow up interview in the office with 4+ people on the team. Had a second interview with several more people. I felt the process took forever but the actual interviews weren't bad. It was more like having a conversation.
Interview Question – Why fossil? Answer Question
Negotiation Details – Offered what I asked for.
I applied online and the process took 5 weeks - interviewed at Fossil.
Interview Details – The hiring process seemed to take a very long time. From the time I submitted my application online to finding out if I got hired or not was about 6 weeks. Unfortunately I was no offered a job for the sales coordinator position, but HR did offer me to come in and interview for another job I did not initially apply for. This is a reason why I'd love to work for Fossil because if your not hired for one position they'll offer another. This process may take up to an additional 2 weeks.
