    I applied online. I interviewed at Guess?.

    Interview

    Saw multiple people in one visit, which was great so I didn't have to drive back and forth for each interview. Turned that I wasn't qualified for the position but they referred me to the manager who was hiring for a junior graphic design position. I was already driving off the lot and the recruiter called me right back to interview on the spot.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at Guess?.

    Interview

    You must go through a few interviews, as is typical in retail. As long as you are respectful and confident but not cocky, you are off to a good start. You start with the DM and then the RM. I personally expressed my passion for the brand and made sure I dressed like I already had the job. I was offered the job a couple days after the last interview.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at Guess? (Los Angeles, CA) in March 2015.

    Interview

    I had two interviews and was hired within the month. Guess has high turnover, so getting into the company is not difficult. Be sure to ask very specific questions about what you will be doing. I found that my position was not exactly what I expected, though I was pleased with it nonetheless. Guess is very strict about being on time. If you are not a punctual person, do not admit it in the interview.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Guess?.

    Interview

    I got a call from HR a few weeks after submitting my application. She jumped straight into it and started asking me several basic questions- Why I was interested in working in retail/fashion etc. She then moved me onto the next round of interviews. I went into the office and did 3 interviews for 3 separate departments (CRM, Factor Planning, Retail Planning). None of the questions were out of the ordinary, however they do ask if you are familiar with using excel functions such as vlookups and pivot tables.
