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.

    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.

    Application Details

    I applied in-person. The process took 1+ weekinterviewed at Fossil.

    Interview Details

    Applying:
    I went in person to pick up an application one day after class (when I had a cute outfit on, from previous experiences shopping I noticed their employees always dressed well). I then brought the application back the next day (with another cute outfit) but with only one reference (they ask for three), I asked the assistant manager if one was acceptable or if she would prefer more and she indicated that three were needed, so I came back a few hours later with the references to hand it in.

    Interview:
    A few days later I got a call from the store manager to set up an interview for a few days later. I wore white pants (not jeans, but not dress pants) and a blouse. I arrived at the store a few minutes before the interview and the manager walked me out to a table out in the mall for the interview. He asked the usual questions such as "Why Fossil?" "What would you do in _____ situation?". He then mentioned that he thought I was well suited for the job, but would need to wait until he managed to contact my last reference before giving me a call about the job.

    A few days later they called me to tell me I had gotten the job! During that phone call they told me what they were willing to pay (more than I had asked for!) and we then set up training dates.

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took a weekinterviewed at Fossil in October 2012.

    Interview Details

    I began the process actually window shopping in the store. One of the managers asked if I wanted to apply for a job and I did. 2 days later, I was called in for an interview with 2 of the managers. They made me feel very comfortable, but they asked difficult questions to make sure that I would fit in the Fossil team. They're looking for personalities that would be good in a team, as well as with customers. Positive attitude is a MUST!
