    Seasonal Sales Associate Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate  in  New York, NY
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in New York, NY
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Lacoste in November 2013.

    Interview Details

    I had a phone interview before this and it was easy and was told to attend a interview.I went in and saw three people. Two of the people interviewed me at the same time. Before we started I decided to give them my resume and was asked if I spoke another language because I attended a class for another language. One of them made a joke when I said no "2 to 0" which was rude, as if it was a competition for the interviewers. Once we started it everything went smoothly and the questions were easy. But once we were done, I knew I didn't get the job right there.

    Emailed them then went in to leave a resume. I heard back over the phone after about one week. They offered me an interview in which I went in and meshed well with the management.

The following day I received a phone call with a job offer to start immediately.

    The process took 5 weeks - interviewed at Lacoste.

    Interview Details

    I applied online and I got a call back for an interview about three weeks later. I scheduled my interview for the following week. The interview was casual, we just sat on some couches inside the store. I was asked very basic questions such as what was the best customer service experience I ever had and what were my best and worst qualities. Nothing too hard for an interview. I heard back with an offer about a week later. There wasn't any negotiation though, the offer was take it or leave it.

Nothing hard at all. Mostly about past experiences and what would you do in a difficult situation. It might have took a week or two for the paper work to go through.
