    Part-Time Supervisor Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 1+ weekinterviewed at Lucky Brand Jeans.

    Interview Details

    I emailed my resume and cover letter to the store, and I got a phone call to set up an interview the next day. My interview was with the SM, and she began the interview with the typical 'tell me about yourself.' I started by telling her my current job experience, my past work experience, why I was interested in the PT Sup position, and what I was looking for in the future (developing within the company). She then asked me more specific questions about my current position. These questions revolved around my personal and store's KPIs, holding myself and employees accountable, and coaching. We also did role play scenarios for coaching an associate and engaging with a customer using product and with out product. After my interview, the SM called me to schedule a phone interview with the DM. The questions were about work experience & KPIs.

    Seasonal Sale Associate Interview

    Application Details

    I applied in-person. The process took 1+ weekinterviewed at Lucky Brand Jeans in October 2014.

    Interview Details

    I walked in the store and asked for the manager and asked if Lucky Brand Jeans was hiring. Mind, dressing up stylishly when asking for a job is noted by the manager. The store manager introduced herself and gave me her card. She told me to call her as soon as I applied online (she gave instructions on how).

    For the interview I dressed fashionably relevant and professional, including Lucky Brand accessories and lookalikes. The store manager interviewed me, and she was very nice and enthusiastic. She asked questions about what would I do in specific customer related situations and how my skill sets would factor into retail. Some of those questions also included how I work autonomously to make the work load more efficient (not just client related). Lastly, she asked why I chose Lucky Brand. By doing your research on the company history, evolution, core values, and charity may give you the bump you need. Knowing Lucky Brand product, especialy the jeans, gives you points.

    It was Seasonal Sales Associate, so you merely discussed scheduling. However, if I hadn't gotten a new full time job during the season, I would have continued working there after the season as part-time. They love great energy, be the customer's friend and personal stylist, and make your goal sales, and you have a good chance of staying on.

    Seasonal Sales Associate Interview

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took a weekinterviewed at Lucky Brand Jeans in October 2014.

    Interview Details

    I was very excited to get an interview at Lucky Brand especially in such a nice outdoor mall. I wore a blue three quarter sleeve shift dress and dressy sandals and arrived only about five minutes early because my bus was late.

    I was paranoid about not arriving ten-fifteen minutes early and out of breath from rushing, but when I went to the cash wrap to say I was there for the interview at 4pm, the sales associate barely acknowledged me and and said I was early and that the manager would be with me in a little while.

    So I walked around the store a bit, and after about ten minutes of being awkward, I sat on one of their chairs to wait.

    Another candidate walked in late and the sales associate I spoke to said the same thing to her. She sat down next to me and we began talking. After another ten minutes or so (around 4:15 now), she asked me when my interview time was, and hers was 4pm as well.

    We waited.
    And waited.
    And waited.

    The snooty sales associate said not once, not twice, but THREE times that the manager would be finished soon.

    At 4:48, the hiring manager emerged from the back room without an explanation and directed us to go outside for the interview even though it was 90 degrees with blinding sunlight. Another girl arrived just at that moment and the hiring manager didn't even seem to notice that she was almost an entire hour late.

    So we sat outside while she stood in front of us about five feet away (and awkward distance when you're in the middle of a busy outdoor mall with lots of noise). So we're all squinting, sweating, and having to almost shout to be heard. The manager seemed weirdly condescending and judgmental, like she wasn't going to give any of us a chance in the first place.

    She asked us questions about Lucky Brand and our previous experience, and asked if we knew how much money our previous jobs made per hour. Somehow, the other two girls did, I had no clue but she didn't seem to notice that I didn't answer.

    At one point during our interview a man with a DSLR camera began taking photos of us and she turned around awkwardly and rolled her eyes and behaved very immaturely about the whole ordeal. She looked about 28 but acted like a stuck up teenager. The entire thing was extremely unprofessional and off-putting.

    After about fifteen minutes of questions she said she would be interviewing more applicants for the next two weeks so to not expect a call until then and then she just walked away. She didn't seem interested or invested in the process at all and it was a big disappointment.
