Sales Associate Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate  in  Towson, MD
Anonymous Interview Candidate in Towson, MD
Application Details

I applied in-person. The process took 1 week - interviewed at H&M.

Interview Details

Walked in the store and asked if they were hiring/had an application. Filled out app in the mall and dropped it off shortly thereafter. Made a follow up call a few days later and spoke with a manager who sort of gave me an unofficial interview to go over work experience. We set up an interview from there a few days later. Typical questions: why did I want to work at H&M? What was I studying in school? Past work experiences? Pretty standard stuff. It's a retail job so just have a great attitude and wear something cool. Got an offer a few days later.

    Had a phone interview then was told to go in store for an in person interview. The interview was relaxed and wasn't difficult. I was told that I would receive a call after they finish my background check but I never got a call back.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 1 week - interviewed at H&M in July 2012.

    Interview Details

    Submit application and resume online, then there is a phone call with basic questions asking about availability and brief previous experience. H&M requires open availability on weekends. If company is interested, they schedule an in person interview. There can multiple in person interviews and you usually are with two people, one being a member of management. At any point in time these in person interviews can turn into a job offer. If not, the company's HR department will contact you via email that you did not get the job.

    Interview Questions
    • All interviews can be different since its based on which store and who is conducting the interview but large volumes stores will ask detail questions about how you manage you time and how you would problem solve different in store situations.   Answer Question

    Interview Details

    I applied online and didn't hear back for 3 weeks. Finally I got an email from recruitment about a job fair at the store so I went to that and had a quick interview with an HR person. After that I received a call about a week later to come interview with the store manager. I was offered a job on the spot. The whole process took a little over a month.

    Application Details

    I applied online - interviewed at H&M in July 2012.

    Interview Details

    Excessively long and unnecessary interview process. Took 3 interviews and months before I was actually hired. Got misleading information several times and was given the run around for weeks at a time. The whole process was just unnecessarily long and inefficient. They made it very difficult on me to get the job.
