    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Marlton, NJ
    Application Details

    The process took 4 daysinterviewed at Guess? in December 2011.

    Interview Details

    Right from the beginning all of the workers were friendly and upbeat. I could tell right from the start that it was a great environment to work in. The first interview was a group of myself and two others being interviewed. It was a lot of fun. They had us put outfits together, talk about what kind of outfit you would pair with a shoe, etc. it showed me that they want to hire people who really do have a passion for the clothing line and I loved that. The next inter view was the next day and this was a one on one interview. They asked good questions and the manager was just like everybody else, nice, friendly and upbeat. Just seeing the work environment there made me anxious to start the job. And the amazing clothes and awesome discount as well. After that they did a background check which took a day and a half and I got a call with the offer. I took it and now I start on Tuesday. It was a great interview experience and it is an amazing company. Can not wait to start.

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Phila, PA
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Phila, PA
    Application Details

    I applied in-person. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at Guess? in August 2011.

    Interview Details

    I filed out an application and received a call within two weeks to come in for an interview. I had my first interview with the co-manager. He liked me and I had my second interview with the store manager about a week later. The second interview was more like a personality assessment, the store manager asked questions about my prior work experience but mainly focused on getting to know me personally to see if I would be a good fit for their store. She was really down to earth. They ran my background check and I started two or three weeks after my second interview.

    They offered me the same amount I was making at my previous job as a manager. I wasn't complaining about going from keyholder to sales associate and receiving the same pay rate so I accepted their offer, no hesitation.

    Retail Sales Associate Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Wailea, HI
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Wailea, HI
    Application Details

    I applied in-person. The process took 3 daysinterviewed at Guess? in June 2011.

    Interview Details

    Most places I apply to either take forever to call you back, or after the interview take forever and/ or sometimes never to call you back.

    I turned in my application to the store on paper after asking for the application all in the same day, and the next day someone called to set up an interview for a week later.

    The interview was held outside of the store, at a table in the Shops of Wailea. The first thing she did was ask me if I was still in school, implying that I look really young.

    First off she asked, do you like Guess?, very casually, and so I replied "Of course!" and how they are my style, but that was it, expecting that they would ask 'Why am I applying to Guess' later in the interview. I never got another chance to express my passion and desire to work there, so maybe that's what impeded my chances. I have no retail experience, and she asked about my last job and responsibilities. She asked a few behavioral and situational questions, and she even asked, "How long would it be before you greet someone in the store?"

    At the end of the interview she told me that she felt it was a very good interview and she said she felt it went really well.

    The next day they called to say they hired another person. Although I didn't get the job I was appreciative they called me back so soon to let me know. Some companies here are so rude and unprofessional. Others would say they would call you to let you know their decision, but they all just leave you hanging, not giving you the courtesy to let you know they went in another direction.

    At first I thought they didn't hire me because they thought I was too young. I called to ask and the answerer told me since they didn't interview they didn't know, but that it must have been to no fault of mine, and that I was probably ideal as well, just a conflict of availability, or sales experience or not.

    Later, when I went shopping there one day, and there working was a new girl, ironically someone my age that I went to school with for years with.

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at Guess? in May 2011.

    Interview Details

    There was a lot of back and forth on the phone before a time and date was set. When I met with the Dm I was shocked at what she was wearing. I understand that Guess is fun, sexy and young but lets keep it classy. I was very distracted by her nails too. It was very quick and uneasy. It almost felt rehearsed.
