I applied online and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Michael Kors.

Interview Details – Applied online and got a call from the store manager about a week later. Initial phone screening lasted about 15 min. just asking what you're looking for, etc. I was then asked to come in for an in-person interview with the store manager and the district manager. Both very nice. Asked about previous management and retail experience. Last about 30 min. total. The third and final interview is an interactive in which you come into the store and they role play with current employees on certain situations, selling techniques, etc.

Interview Question – Nothing too difficult if you've worked retail before   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – No negotiation on compensation

Interviewed at Michael Kors

Interview Details – I had a brief phone interview with HR recruiter. At the same week, I went for interview with the recruiter and the department manager. The interview was very casual and easy. Both of interviewers are very nice and willing to answer all my questions. I got the phone call at the same day.

Interview Question – I was interviewing for the entry level position. they did not really ask any difficult or unexpected questions. Most of the time I was introducing myself and talked about what I have been learning in school.   Answer Question

Very Easy Interview

Stock Associate Interview

Anonymous Employee

I applied in-person and the process took 2 days - interviewed at Michael Kors in October 2013.

Interview Details – Hired on my first interview, easy process..

Negotiation Details – It was an offer I could not refuse. I just wished I had known that after the holidays all offers of advancement were forgotten, as many other people say, "MK uses employees, you have to give up your life during holidays" , but when they don't need you, after holidays rush is over, you can forget about true appreciation. Also there are no benefits available, except for employee discount.

Sales Associate Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate

I applied through a recruiter and interviewed at Michael Kors.

Interview Details – Interviewed through a recruiter. Interviewed with store manager for 30 minutes. She liked me a lot, offered me a sales position and a better pay than what i originally make. Then had to do second interview with the DM which is an interactive interview where they see how well you perform on the sales floor. Make sure you greet every single customer and try to sell something even though they do not tell you to. Also, dress like you work for Michael Kors and KNOW EVERYTHING ABOUT HIM!

Sales Associate Interview

Sales Associate
El Paso, TX

I applied through college or university and the process took 1 week - interviewed at Michael Kors in March 2013.

Interview Details – I applied online by sending my resume and cover letter to the e-mail address posted. I would suggest making the best of your resume by detailing your sales experience ( preferably high end retailers or accessories sales).

I was called in for an initial interview with the Store Manager. The questions were very typical retail interview questions. She asked me about my life and my hobbies, and why I wanted to work at Michael Kors specifically.

I was called two days later to come in for an "interactive", in which I role played as a sales associate with other employees. ( The idea is to have you as a "greeter" for the store, but the day I went in it there was not enough traffic). I would suggest being friendly, and know your stuff! It's not hard to google information on the brand, Michael Kors's culture and "6 essential" items he thinks a women should have.

Interview Question – Nothing too unexpected. Expect to dress up very nice. The girls that work there are all very fashion forward. Wear heels, makeup, and something that looks like it could be from the store.   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – I was offered the maximum pay. I have a lot of experience, they will try their best to work with pay so don't be afraid to ask for more if you have a lot of retail experience or a degree.
