Assistant Manager

Interviewed at Guess?

Interview Details – I applied within the store the manager happened to be there and she took my application; by the time I made it to my car she called to set up an interview which was about a week later. The interview was a small group interview of 6 six people, it was very short and laid back. I heard back from them within a week with an offer.

Interview Question – all of the questions were pretty basic.   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – This was actually the toughest part because pay is ALWAYS negotiable even if they tell you it's not, IT IS never take the first offer. It took about an hour to reach an agreement but finally we did.

Assistant Manager Interview

Assistant Manager
San Francisco, CA

I applied through a recruiter and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Guess? in October 2010.

Interview Details – Since I was recruited, the interview process wasn't bad.

I first met with the store's manager had a 15 min interview, then was told about the company and the responsibilities of the position. A couple days later I met with the district manager, we had an hour long interview in a casual setting. The next day I got a call back saying that they were going to move forward with me in the position, and that they needed to conduct a background check. Once the background check was cleared, they made me an offer that I signed and agreed upon.

Interview Question – Why are you interested in working for a store/company you've never shopped at before? And do you feel it will give you a disadvantage in working here?   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – There weren't any negotiations

Assistant Manager Interview

Assistant Manager
Orland Park, IL

I applied online and the process took a day - interviewed at Guess? in March 2011.

Interview Details – After seeing an opening on-line for Guess in the mall, I sent my resume to the appropriate e-mail as listed on-line. The next few days I got a call to set up an interview. I met with (who I thought was the store manager), the Co-Manager. She asked me to fill out an application and agree to a background check. She interviewed me in the mall. She asked the basic questions, what do you know about Guess.. tell me about yourself..., tell me about a time when..., how would you handle... Then she asked if I had any questions. After asking my questions, she explained she was the co-manager and the store manager was off and wouldn't be back for a few days. She told me she would talk to the store manager and if they decide to go further I would be invited for a second interview. She also told me there were 3 different levels of management, assistant managers, a co-manager, and a store manager. The store environment was quiet, no customers, and neatly merchandised. The interviewer wore a mini skirt, knee boots, and a lace shirt. I may have been dressed wrong because I haven't gotten a call back, I wore a black suit, white shirt.

Assistant Manager Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate
Cincinnati, OH

I applied in-person and the process took 1+ week - interviewed at Guess? in September 2010.

Interview Details – I applied for the Assistant Manager position posted online in person and scheduled an interview a couple of days afterward. The interview seemingly went well and I was specifically told that, unlike other retail employers, G by Guess prides itself on treating employees and applicants respectfully. After the end of my interview I was told that I would receive a call within three days regardless of whether or not I would be given the position. A few weeks passed and I could really even care less to call them back.

P.S. I was told at my interview that an Assistant Manager is simply a glorified Sales Associate who coaches the Sales Associates with the latest promotions and goals.

Interview Question – Describe a time when you suggested an idea at a previous job which failed and how you learned from it.   Answer Question
