Store Manager Interview

Store Manager

I applied through college or university and the process took 4 weeks - interviewed at H&M.

Interview Details – The process was long. About 3 to 4 weeks. Apart from the first two initial interviews, no one seemed prepared after that point. If your interview is at 8 a.m., get there at 7:45 a.m. and expect to be interviewed at 8:30 a.m.

Interview Question – Half of the interview questions were unrelated to the work. Questions seem more to be about finding out someone's level of pleasantness rather than what and how they are able to contribute o the company.   View Answer

Negotiation Details – It was very quick. The job offer interview may have lasted about 20 minutes.

Xánthi (Greece)

I applied in-person - interviewed at H&M in May 2013.

Interview Details – I applied on the internet with my cv and a cover letter attached, they called me about 4 days later and we arranged an interview for the next week. After the interview they told me that I would be informed in the next 2 weeks either for a positive or negative answer, however, I got an email two months after! The interviewers were a store manager from another city and an assistant, they weren't from HR, they were negative from the beggining and absolutely not professional.

Interview Question – unexpected?what's my horoscope!seriously!And I had my full birth date on my cv. They didn't comment on anything else about my application but they asked me this!   Answer Question
