Sales Advisor Interview

Sales Advisor

I applied in-person and interviewed at H&M.

Interview Details – If you are applying make sure you call them and ask for the status of your application.. The interview process is quite simple. Phone interview with basic questions of previous experience. Then round two where they call you and sit down with you. If you've written college papers then this should be a walk in the park. Questions about what makes you the right person and hypothetical situations as well.

Interview Question – They give you a situation and ask you which items you would do in order.   View Answer

Negotiation Details – Best paying retail job when you cant find a real job after college.

Interviewed at H&M

Interview Details – I applied at the web side almost a month ago and I haven’t received a response of any kind, I would appreciate a faster response from them so that you don’t waste your time just waiting for a call or an e-mail. It seems for me that they don’t really need somebody.
