    I applied online. The process took 4 daysinterviewed at Hollister Co. (Mesa, AZ) in June 2015.

    Interview

    There are two interview phases as I'm sure you have been reading. The first one will be with the AM, Manager, or store manager depending of on many variables of scheduling and just life. Mine was a rare one and I had it with the assistant manager. He was awesome so that was cool. The second was the week after with the District Manager. She was awesome as well. The questions are mostly experience and tell me about a time you... So as long as you just take a deep breathe and relax you will be fine. The process has been a month now which most company's don't take that long if they are looking. Waiting to hear back :)

    I applied online. The process took 5 daysinterviewed at Hollister Co. (Los Angeles, CA) in June 2015.

    Interview

    soooo I was very excited about the interview, but the manager interviewing me had absolutely zero energy. i feel like she didn't give me a chance, even when i was dressed in hollister attire & i'm pretty (i think!) but her flat attitude was frustrating but i kept my smile. She ONLY asked me about fashion, then asked about DIVERSITY of course. I answered this talking about honoring differences & learning from people different than you. she informed me the correct answer was having people that LOOK different makes the customer feel welcome, when i thought the company was going away from looks being everything? When i asked her "can you tell me about the MIT program?" she said "well what do you want to know about it" & then i could tell she was NOT even considering me for this position. I didn't wanna work here anyways lmao Abercrombie company still sucks

    Interview

    I applied online, went to the hollister store on the day that my interview was (friday at 4pm). I got there 10 mins early and told an employee that i was here for an interview. The employee took me to the manager and the manager asked what my name was and what job i was apply for. I asnwered and then she had me sit in a chair and told me to wait for the 4-6 other people who were suppose to show up. i wait 15 and nobody showed up. Then the manager came and took me to a table outside of the store. We sat down, she handed me her clipboard that had a sign in sheet on it and told me to sign it (basically just stating that i showed up for the interview. Then she talked a little bit about herself and a fun fact about her then asked me to do the same. Then she asked me 4 interview questions.

    Interview

    I waited for 15 minutes after the scheduled time to be interview, which is honestly rude for the manager to do so. It was a group interview, but there was only one girl besides me. She asked us multiple questions and the interview lasted around 15 minutes. She asked us around 6 questions.

    Interview

    It was chill and the interview was short. The manager brought us outside the store and conducted the interview. There was 3 people in the group. The manager wrote down our answers as we talked. She was very nice, and also at a young age. People seem prepared so definitely prepared before you go to the interview.
