I applied online and the process took 1 week - interviewed at Levi Strauss.

Interview Details – The interview was very relaxed. I had a one on one interview, which surprised me as many of the reviews i have raid stated that the first interview is in a group format. The manager asked me about myself and then proceeded to ask about where i get style information from, why did i choose Levis, and what i look for in a good shopping experience. He then opened it up to me to ask him any questions i may have. This was my first interview and i was quit nervous going in to it, but the manager was not pushy and stiff and this took a lot of the edge off.

Interview Question – We call all of our employees "stylists", wheter in stock or sales. Why do you think we call them "stylists"?   Answer Question

I applied online - interviewed at Levi Strauss in June 2014.

Interview Details – Submitted application online, got called for an interview about 3 days later. It was a group interview with a few other people and they asked about 5 simple questions total. Their was two workers conducting the group interview, they were very friendly and relaxed. After the interview they called us back one at a time and told us what was going to happen next. They told me they'll give me a call in a few days to set up a second interview with the assistant manager. A month later they finally called to set up the second interview.. I'll edit this once i go to it.

I applied online and the process took 1+ week - interviewed at Levi Strauss in May 2014.

Interview Details – The interview was in the back room. Super informal. Just me and the manager asking questions about me. They asked "Where do you get your fashion from?" "How do you handle the customer?"and my previous retail experiences such as "What do you have experience in? The front and being on the floor or back doing stock?" "Where are you most comfortable?" The atmosphere of the store was very laid back and I felt comfortable in the store and could see myself working there. In the end, after another 5 days when the background check was cleared, we couldn't negotiate to an agreement on pay and had to pass on the job.

Interview Question – "Where do you see yourself in 5 years?"   View Answer

Reason for Declining – Pay. =/

Interview Details – I applied and the process to get an interview took about 2-3 weeks. They called and scheduled it. I went in with a group of about 7. It was very laid back and everyone took turns speaking. The interviewer asked only 4 questions that are almost too simple. Just make sure to smile at the interviewer and other people around you. I was offered a job on the spot.
