Analyst Interview (Neutral Experience; Average Interview)
I applied online and the process took 3 days - interviewed at Oakley.
Interview Details – I interviewed with two people back to back. The first person was very thorough in explaining duties, procedures, and team synergy. The second interviewer put up a wall from the get-go and rushed to get out of the interview. I wanted to ask more questions about the company and position, but was cut short. Both interviews combined took 1 hour.

Marketing Representative Interview (Positive Experience; Average Interview)
I applied online and the process took 3 weeks - interviewed at Oakley in March 2013.
Interview Details – The hiring process consisted of a skype interview, a phone interview with regional manager, and a face to face interview with regional manager, national manager, and talent acquisition manager. Very casual interview, t-shirts, jeans, flip flops were the attire. The final interview which was the face to face also included a presentation that the applicants had to prepare. We were all given a pair of sunglasses and were to make a presentation that we would give to any of our accounts.

Human Resources Interview (Negative Experience; Difficult Interview)
I applied online - interviewed at Oakley in May 2014.
Interview Details – This was an extensive interview process. Initially, I had about a 30 minute screening interview with the Recruiter. She was great! She told me she would share her feedback with the hiring manager and if they were interested, they would interview me. I got a call a few days later and was set up with a phone interview with the hiring manager. That was about an hour and it was pretty difficult. I was asked a lot of situation type questions and it was hard to hear her at times because it sounded like she was driving and doing things (doors opening & closing, etc). The phone interview was around 5:00pm after work.
After this, I got called in for an in person interview. I was set to meet with 5 people from 8am - 10am. Once I got in, I was initially interviewed by 2 people for 30 minutes. Again, they asked similar questions to the ones I answered over the phone. I was then interviewed by 2 other people for 30 minutes. After that, I was told I was done and rushed out of the building. I was done an hour early and didn't meet with the last person I was supposed to meet with. Seemed a little unprofessional to me. I figured they had decided I wasn't a fit but they should have addressed that I wouldn't be meeting with the last person instead of just rushing me out.
After that, I never got a call or anything from the recruiter.
Interview Question – All of the questions were "Tell me about a time when..." or "What would you do if...." Answer Question
Manager Interview (Positive Experience; Average Interview)

Offer made the following week via telephone.
Interview Question – Tell us how you would you would react if your business plan was rejected Answer Question

Customer Care Representative Interview (Neutral Experience; Easy Interview)
I applied online - interviewed at Oakley in March 2014.

Organizational Development Coordinator Interview (Neutral Experience)
Interviewed at Oakley
Interview Details – This process was especially intense and grueling. Also it was extremely long! I went through a telephone interview, in person interview, and then came back to do three 1/2 hour interviews with people in the department followed by a 20 minute presentation on a topic in the field. It was not enjoyable and I think it was a lot of resources wasted for the company.
Interview Question – Nothing-- just a tough presentation as they seemed pretty insistent that it matched their culture as well as being informative and showing you know your stuff Answer Question
