    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Levi Strauss (San Francisco, CA).

    Interview

    Phone screen, phone interview with hiring manager, in person interviews with peer, SVP, and director. They were extremely pleasant and it was one of the few companies I interviewed with that had a scheduled 15 minute break between interviews. Very informal and inviting atmosphere. There questions were very well tailored to the job at hand. I was disappointed by the fact that none of the interviewers took notes.

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral – interviewed at Levi Strauss.

    Interview

    After an initial phone interview, I went in multiple times and spoke with a few different teams to discuss a position that ended up going to an internal candidate months later. Each interview was only 20 minutes or so, but overall I spent a lot of time with the teams learning their culture and understanding the role before they made their decision.

    Interview Questions

    • There was a "prep" question to review and have a plan to discuss in the interview, but it was never mentioned in the interviews. The entire process was very "how do you think", instead of "what do you think" type of questions.   Answer Question

    Separate interviews to cover all cross functional partners that you would be working with. 9 in total for me including the HR person and over 3 separate days.

    Application

    I applied in-person – interviewed at Levi Strauss (New York, NY) in March 2015.

    Interview

    I went in for an open call. I filled out an application then I waited for about 30 minutes for the group interview to begin. The group interview had about 20-30 people. The managers were very nice and asked simple questions. Everyone had a chance to answer each question. Due to the number of people in the interview, you really had to make sure that your answers were different from others so that the managers could remember you. Overall good experience.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Levi Strauss.

    Interview

    Phone screen, two in office interview, one with lead associate and one with store manager, painless, very straightforward interview questions, hit the ground running, no training program. Nothing outside of the ordinary with a lower-level retail sales position. Hours are light when you first start, but they will load your schedule once you start to produce. Was able to set my own hours after 2 mos on the job.

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took a weekinterviewed at Levi Strauss.

    Interview

    Walked into the store and simply inquired the manager of any job openings. The manager quickly grabbed me an application and told me to turn it in as soon as i finished filling it out. I was immediately asked to return for first round interviews, which are conducted in small groups of 6-8, then followed by the second round of interviews - a short one on one interview, and a job offer via telephone. I was naive to immediately accept what I was offered out of excitement rather than negotiating for better compensation.

    Interview Questions

    • very typical interview questions with a few along the lines of "what super power would you choose and why"   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    Offer was over the phone and I was naive to immediately accept what I was offered out of excitement rather than negotiating for better compensation.
