Part Time Sales Associate Interview

Part Time Sales Associate
New York, NY

I applied online and the process took 1+ week - interviewed at L'Occitane in October 2013.

Interview Details – Initial communication was done with a store manager. I applied for one location and got a phone call from another New York location. I started off seasonal, so the interview process was fairly quick. My interview was with the store manager and then about 2 days later I got a phone call saying to come in and meet the district manager--sort of an orientation and I was able to pick one of a few stores to work at.

Interview Question – There wasn't anything to difficult or unexpected. The questions were typical like "What are some of your most positive characteristics?" and "Where do you see opportunities to improve?", etc.   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – I gave an minimum $/hr that I could work with and I was suprised that I got a fairly higher hourly wage than I originally put. I was quite pleased.

Sales Associate/Keyholder Interview

Sales Associate/Keyholder

I applied in-person and the process took 5 days - interviewed at L'Occitane.

Interview Details – I came in for an application and was interviewed on the spot. I felt like some of my answers were ignored and the manager was more interested in hiring me than what I had to say. After there was a Skype interview with the DM. At this point I forums the DM to be very condescending and considered not accepting the position after my encounter with her. The interview was very unprofessional and disrespectful on the DMs part.

Interview Question – Questions were fairly simple on the surface, but tone, phrasing, and desired answer were a bit tougher to discern   Answer Question
