I interviewed in-person. The process took 3 days - interviewed at Guess? in August 2014.

Interview Details

Have my application to them on a Saturday, called me the following day for an interview that coming Tuesday. Interview lasted literally 2 minutes since the manager was in a hurry to find more employees. Asked me about my work experience and told me about expectations and what she needed. Asked me if I could do it and I said yes and she basically hired me on the spot. Background check took a day. Called me on Thursday to fill out paperwork and get started on training.

    I interviewed in-person. The process took 1 week - interviewed at Guess? in October 2010.

    Interview Details

    I went into the Guess store at my local mall and asked for an application. They didn't have any on hand so the Assistant Manager on duty asked the sales associated on the floor to go in the back and print one. I filled it out and returned it that same day. I received a call the following day asking if I could come in for an interview. I was interviewed 3 days later with that same Assistant Manager who gave me the application. The interview was very casual. It was really just a conversation allowing him to get to know me. A lot of the questions were about my hobbies, school, past experience and availability.

    The interview was rescheduled twice. The manager was not friendly at all. I was not comfortable talking to her. She also asked to walk to random people and make friends with them (awkward)..

    Look the Part
    The success of most retail stores is all about appearances: the look of the merchandise, the look of the store and, most importantly, the look of the people who work in the store. Dress for the interview in a manner similar to the people who work at the store. If you are interviewing for a job in a clothing store, wear the store's clothing. This tells a potential employer that you have not only done your research but also can speak honestly about the product to a customer.

    Know the Product
    If you don't have experience with the product or don't currently use it, do some research. Go into the store and take a look at their product line. This will prepare you to answer questions in an interview. For most retail job interviews, particularly sales, you will be asked questions about the products in the store. Visit the company's website to learn about their product history or new products slated to be released.

    Show Who You Are
    Retail is a fast-moving industry because there are so many competitors. Motivating a customer to purchase an item and return to your store can be difficult. Retailers are constantly hiring new staff due to high turnover. Show that you are up to the task by being enthusiastic during the interview. Allow your personality to show. Concentrate on your strengths; it's OK if you don't have experience in every area. For example, if you don't have an extensive amount of sales experience, focus on your customer service skills and your willingness to learn more about direct sales.

    I interviewed in-person. The process took 1 week - interviewed at Guess? in May 2012.

    Interview Details

    The process of interview was pretty easy for me, I ask for an application and on the spot was told that someone would call me for an interview and days after I received a call, maybe because it was an urgent need for associates. Came in on interview day and did a two part interview, questions and then styling type quiz, with another interviewee.

    I interviewed through college or university. The process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Guess? in October 2012.

    Interview Details

    The company had come to a job fair at my school so i filled out and application there and a week later i got a call about an interview the next morning
    the interview was for 10:30 and was a group interview (which was never mentioned)
    There were 10 of us and the manager interviewed us out side the store at some benches in the mall it was early so there weren't many shoppers
    the whole thing lasted half and hour and was very simple and laid back
    she mainly just went over what they accept , out job description and the dress code
    then she went around and asked each of us the same question which was " out of everything i just told you about the job what part do you think you will do the best at or are most excited about doing "
    then we got to ask questions and it was over
    she said we would hear back with in 5 -7 day due to the wait of the background check
    Right now they are hiring about 300 people since the holidays are coming up (it is seasonal position)but alot of the time if you do a good job you get hired permanently
    UPDATE:
    A day later I got a call offering me the job and I accepted
    I go to fill out paperwork next week

    I interviewed in-person. The process took 2 days - interviewed at Guess? in March 2008.

    Interview Details

    Very straightforward interview process, come with a positive, fun, and dynamic attitude to win the hearts of the hiring managers. Dress semi-casual, it is a fashion retailer so you have to show some sense of coordination and style with your 'interview outfit'
