    Application

    The process took 2 daysinterviewed at Lacoste (Orlando, FL).

    Interview

    They do 2 interviews. They ask you a bunch of questions just to see if you're not crazy like they are. They ask you to name someone famous who inspires you. And what athlete inspires you. Dress nicely and use big vocabulary words even if you use them in the wrong way they probably wouldn't know. They're all airheads.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university – interviewed at Lacoste.

    Interview

    Interviewing process was very quick - after I applied, I heard back the next day. Someone from HR called for a phone screening, then I was brought in for an in-person interview, which was very brief. The interviewer briefly described the position, asked me to tell her about myself, why Lacoste, and if I had questions. I was probably there for 5 minutes, max (and not in a good way).

    Store Manager Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 8+ weeksinterviewed at Lacoste (Commerce, CA) in September 2014.

    Interview

    The hiring process was way too long. From start to finish it took well over two months. You have about 5 interviews and you'll be asked all the standard questions. They care about team development and customer service but most importantly results. You better have result in a high volume setting. I met a few good people along the way. I first interviewed with a very nice store manager from Ontario Mills and a very cool area manager. Last , I interviewed with the DM. She was very interesting. She was new to the company and didn't have much information regarding the process. She just sat there and listened and ask me If I would be open to taking the assistant manager position...WTF really. What and insult. I have worked very hard to get were I am. I have a degree and ten plus year of retail manager experience and you just discount everything and offer me an ASM position. I felt like telling her where to go. Needless to say, I declined the offer. The lesson I learned was there really are those DMs that will try anything to get top talent for cheap. Make sure you accept what your worth. Overall, Thank you Ken and briana you two are amazing. I'm sorry It didn't work out.

    Reasons for Declining

    They insulted my experience so they could get me for cheap. I know what I offer and what I bring to the table so be fair.
