    I applied online. The process took a weekinterviewed at Hollister Co..

    Interview Details

    It was a group interview. Very quick, only got asked 3 simple questions. Very laid back. Not stressful. The manager didn't expect very thorough answers. I dressed as if I worked there. Wore Hollister clothes. Be friendly and outgoing to the other people being interviewed. That's mainly what the manager interviewing you wants to see.

    Hollister Floor Model Interview

    Interview Details

    Interview process involves up to ten applicants sitting in a circle talking about random / ridiculous things that seem irrelevant to a job interview. There is unnecessary pressure to answer and not sound ridiculous or "lame, " as this is a job for a high schooler to apply for.

    Negotiation Details
    No negotiation. They only pay minimum wage and only hire people they perceive as pretty or handsome.

    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 6 weeksinterviewed at Hollister Co..

    Interview Details

    I was asked in store to work there, gave them my info and left. 3 weeks later I still hadn't hear so I called in and they said the manager messed up and didn't give me some information. They gave me a website and I was called for an interview within a couple days. I went in for the interview 5 minutes early and was told that the manager was on break. I literally sat there for 30 minutes. Finally I got my interview and it was done in less than 10 minutes. I thought it was going to be a group interview but it was just me. I was called within a week and got the job.

    Impact Team Member Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Rancho Cucamonga, CA
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Rancho Cucamonga, CA
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Hollister Co. in November 2014.

    Interview Details

    I called the location I wanted to work at and the manager gave me the password needed to access the online application. Towards the end of your application, they have a few interview dates and times for you to pick from so you automatically get an interview. They don't call or email you as a reminder. My outfit was a cardigan, tank top, and distressed jeans all from Hollister, along with some flip flops. I arrived about 10 mins before my scheduled interview and they told me to hang around until the other people showed up for our group interview. It was me, a girl, two other girls and one boy. The manager asked us why diversity is important and told us to give an example of where you can find it. She also asked us what we did in a situation where we had to complete at task in short amount of time and it had to be completely accurate. I had already read interview reviews on Glassdoor so my answers were already embedded in my mind. Towards the end, I asked what an Impact team member actually does and how we could move into the model position. Don't get discouraged if you don't think you'll be hired based on looks. I'm black and the manager looked to be of Indian descent. I got a call a little over a week later saying I got the job. Definitely smile, make eye contact and try to get a couple extra words or questions in to leave a mark.

    Sales Associate (Model) Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Orlando, FL
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Orlando, FL
    Application Details

    I applied in-person. The process took a weekinterviewed at Hollister Co..

    Interview Details

    We started off waiting in the lounge until everyone arrived (since it was a group interview) and until the interviewing manager was ready. Everyone wore clothes typical of Hollister models (white or navy top paired with dark wash jeans and a plaid shirt or something of that variety). Then on a clipboard, we wrote our names and the job title we were interviewing for. Afterwards, we followed the manager to the food court where we had the interview (it was during store hours). The manager went around asking typical questions such as what word would your friend use to describe you, or experience based questions. The interviewer took notes as each of us answered the questions. Afterwards, we were free to leave and the interviewer told us that we would receive a call back if they find us fit for the job. I received a call a week later saying I got the job.

    The interview process was very straight forward, at the time I did not have much experience, but was able to get along just fine. The interviewer was more interested in seeing if I had communication skills and would be able to conduct myself in a professional manner.
