    Ecommerce Marketplace Support Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Bioggio (Switzerland)

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2+ weeksinterviewed at Guess? in March 2015.

    Interview Details

    They called me to invite for an interview.
    The process took 3 weeks. There is before an interview with the HR and after another interview which is more or less the same of the first one (but with a manager).
    IT'S VERY EXPENSIVE GO THERE. SO ASK FOR A REFUND OR NOT GO.
    The managers are not nice, there is a woman which is very aggressive and they feel herself "verycool" but is not true.
    Be yourself, be always self confidence. Guess is not an innovative company.
    Don't show that you don't like work in the middle of nowhere or they will not hire you.
    It's very difficult get the place of Guess in Switzerland. I feel unconfortable they are very "old style" company. I don't recommend them to anyone.

    The interview was very easy. I went in for an aplication and got an interview on the spot! I met a few of the managers and they were super nice.. The interview took about 15 minutes! The manager didnt ask many questions he/she just asked me to put together an outfit for a specific event and that was really it!

    Application Details

    I applied online – interviewed at Guess?.

    Interview Details

    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.

    The first round was a group interview. It was really chill and kind of fun. The manager asked who we admired in the fashion industry and why we were wearing the outfits we choose. After that you got called for a one on one with the hiring manager to talk about salary, hours, stuff like that.

    Application Details

    I applied in-person. The process took a weekinterviewed at Guess?.

    Interview Details

    It was a group interview (me and two other girls) held very early in the morning before the store opened. We filled out a form and were being observed to see if we were talking to each other. Manager came back and said that she hoped we got to know each other while we were filling out forms because we were going to have to state 5 things about the other person. She walked away and gave us 5 more minutes. After this she asked us what do we do, where do we see ourselves in 10 years from now. She was friendly, she observed what we were wearing, retail experience is a must.
    Of course she asked us "Why Guess?" ..
    She did not state how much they pay at this job (came to find out its $9 for NY locations, no commission.
    Then she stated what we would expect from us, it was a little harsh for one girl who never worked retail, i remember she said "Do you have any idea what you would be getting yourself into? This is not like (referring to the girl's current job)." i felt bad for her =/.

    Seasonal Sales Associate Interview

    Application Details

    I applied in-person – interviewed at Guess?.

    Interview Details

    I applied in store about two weeks ago and they called me for an interview soon after. I studied a lot for this interview by using the questions here and came prepared to answer them all. However, once I got there the woman was really nice just asked me why I wanted to work for GUESS, made me fill out an application form with references and previous roles and now I'm waiting to hear back about a background check. Praying that I get it but the waiting process is the worst part. I'm only doing seasonal work though, so for the rest of you I'd recommend knowing the company and definitely studying beforehand :)

    Interview Details

    First there was a group interview, where a worker asked us questions like what are we most passionate about, what is one word to describe ourselves, and how would we greet a costumer. After this I received a follow up interview with the manager where she asked why I would be a good fit, what would I do if someone higher up was doing something wrong, what would be my selling strategy, etc.
