    Sales Associate Interview

    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at H&M (Milwaukee, WI) in May 2015.

    Interview

    The freaking application was the hardest part. Part of the application was dealing with math analogies and word associations. The math part I could understand, but some of it was not related to the retail field; like how long a car is worth after depreciation of 20 years. And the word associations were from some words I have never even heard of.

    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at H&M (Toronto, ON (Canada)) in August 2014.

    Interview

    Interview was difficult to get. I applied twice and had many friends rejected as well. After the phone interview, I met with my manager and was asked lots of questions, there were a couple I had to think about for a second. My interview was also being supervised from someone in head office which made me more nervous. I would say my interview was about 40 minutes however talking to my coworkers their were much shorter.

    Shop Manager Romania Interview

    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at H&M (Deva (Romania)) in June 2015.

    Interview

    The interview process was really interesting. Phone interview, face-to-face and then a group interview with a series of tasks to complete in order to evaluate our abilities. HR responsible and 2 shop managers were present all very positive and fun. The problem is that after all these interviews none of us was selected, all was for nothing as they already had someone in mind. They wanted to bring another colleague (from another city) to run the shop. Just a great loss of time and hopes. I am sorry that we had such an encounter with this respected retailer, hope it will not happen to any of you.

    Part-time Sales Advisor Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Budapest (Hungary)
    No Offer
    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at H&M (Budapest (Hungary)) in September 2012.

    Interview

    The first interview was a phone interview about some personal information, and they asked some questions about how I imagine myself at their company, what I think my job will be like. It was very surprising, that I actually didn't know that it was an interview, the lady only told me at the end of the conversation. The second part was a group interview, we were about 12-13, they separated us in two groups. There were 3 tasks that we had to solve, the first was organizing clothes in the correct order and check if everything was ok, the second was shopwindow-dressing, the third was making decisions together about important questions, and it was over when everyone agreed. The third interview would have been a personal interview, but unfortunately the didn't call me back.

    Neutral Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at H&M (Athens (Greece)) in April 2013.

    Interview

    I applied for a Visual Merchandiser position at H&M. They called me and had my first phone interview a few hours after I sent my cv.Then called me the day after for a follow-up interview.I was interviewed by the head of visual and an HR manager.The interview lasted 1 hour and they seemed pretty excited. Two days later I had a callback and asked me to go directly to a store for some skills tests.There I met with the visual of the store and went through a few tests.Before I was even home,an hour later she called me for another interview the day after.For my fourth interview,there was a manager and another head of visual if I remember correctly.They told me that this was the last interview and they will either call me for an offer If I got the job or email me If I did not within two weeks. It's been almost 3 weeks and haven't heard back yet. Saying I'm sick to my stomach would be an understatement as I thought I had the job and now I pass my days starring at my phone,wondering what happened.
