Sales Advisor Interview

Easy Interview

Application

The process took 3+ monthsinterviewed at H&M in April 2015.

Interview

Applied 6 months ago. After inquiring about my application for a few months I finally was approached by a manager for an interview. The interview was pretty simple. One-on-one. I was asked to fill out a background check: usually that's a good sign so all seemed well. 5 weeks past and each week I would call or stop by the store for a follow up. I received a voicemail stating that my information would be on file for a few months in the event that something opens, but that there were no available positions. Yet the store was hiring for multiple positions according to the career section on their website and the hiring ad in the main entrance of the store. Sounded more like a rude way of saying they didn't want to offer a position.

    Interview

    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.

    Application

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

    Interview

    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 Questions

    • They give you a situation and ask you which items you would do in order.   1 Answer

    Negotiation

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

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at H&M in May 2013.

    Interview

    I put in an application on line and called in and asked to speak with a manager. Built report with her, kept calling back asking about he status. Walked in and turned in a résumé on top of this and chatted with the workers a bit. Called back a few days later to talk to the manager. Eventually landed a phone screening with the hiring manager, that went really well. Called him back a few days later and he set up an interview the following week. Went in to that interview and did well. Called him a few days later again and he set me up an interview with the store manager, that went awesome and I got offered the job on the spot.

    Interview Questions

    • During the first interview the manager read a list of values and asked me to pick out two that resonated the most with me. It wasn't hard, I had just never encountered that before.   1 Answer

    Negotiation

    No negotiation was needed for me, they pay extremely well and I'm very happy.
