    Part Time Sales Associate Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at La Senza (St. John's, NL (Canada)) in October 2013.

    Interview

    I applied online, took three weeks or so, then they called to set up an interview the next day. It was a group interview ... they don't tell you this ahead of time, but there is about six of you being interviewed at once, and you don't all get a chance to answer the questions unless you kind of jump in. So although the interview atmosphere itself is laid back, it's kind of difficult to make yourself stand out in a positive way. BE AWARE: the dress code at La Senza is all black, try to match this for your interview. They like blazers and black boots. (Wish I had gotten that heads up!)

    Interview Questions

    • What is your favourite store (other than la senza) and why? Have you ever had a really good or really bad shopping experience? What is your favourite La Senza product?   Answer Question

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at La Senza (Dartmouth, NS (Canada)) in October 2011.

    Interview

    I went to the mall with a handfull of resumes and started handing them out. I wasn't going to go into la senza because I did not want to work with only girls. However, my boyfriend convinced me to go in and I did and talked to the manager who happened to be there. I handed her my resume and she informed me that they were holding interviews every tuesday and thursday, since the holiday season was approaching. I went in on Tuesday and it was a very laid back interview, but since it was a group interview I made sure I stood out. I got a job offer the next morning.

    Interview Questions

    I applied in-person. The process took a week. I interviewed at La Senza in March 2011.

    Interview

    I applied in-person and got an interview the next day. It went well and after the interview she had me do another interview (on the same day) with a different manager from a different location. Normally, the next interview is supposed to be with the district manager next but, she was on holiday. I was offered the job the following day, pending references of course. The type of questions they asked were behavioural type.

    The amount they offered were higher then what I had thought.
