Customer Care Representative Interview

Customer Care Representative

I applied online - interviewed at Oakley in March 2014.

Interview Details – First i was contacted for a phone interview to see how you sound on the phone. Next was the 1:1 interview which is super laid back. Jeans and t shirt are perfectly fine. They asked a few questions and said I would hear back by the end of the week but after several emails and phone calls I wasn't contacted until almost 2 weeks later with a no.

Interview Question – Why do you want to work for Oakley?
Tell me about a time when your day to day work environment drastically changed.
Tell me about a time when you were faced with a difficult situation and found an easy outcome.

Organizational Development Coordinator Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate

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

Sports Marketing Manager Interview

Sports Marketing Manager
Foothill Ranch, CA

I applied online and the process took 3 weeks - interviewed at Oakley in December 2013.

Interview Details – Answered a opening in Monster.com. HR called within a week to set up a phone interview. HR asked basic questions about my resume. Went in for an interview a week later. Met with HR for an hour and then the hiring manager. HR interview was more in depth on work history and experience. Hiring Manager interview went off the rails quickly when I was asked if I was a Christian. I guess I answered wrong, the next question was, "do I have any questions about the position", which I did, but got vague answers. Then I got the, "well thanks for coming in" line, and was shown the door. HR interview 1 hour, hiring manager interview 6 minutes. That should be a record.

It looks and sounded like an awesome place to work. Everyone seems smart, and they work hard and play hard. HR felt I may be a little over qualified, but who isn't these days. Very casual dress, interview in t-shirt and jeans.

Interview Question – This one is a no brainer, "are you a Christian?"   View Answer

Sales Associate Interview

Sales Associate
Foothill Ranch, CA

I applied online and the process took 1+ week - interviewed at Oakley.

Interview Details – Lots of in depth questions, mostly giving examples of scenarios where you met a need or solved a problem in past jobs. I think some questions they look to see if you will trash talk past employees/employers, they make sure you have a positive attitude.

Applied online, a week or two later I had a phone call asking me to come in for an interview. Was called the week after to let me know I was offered the position.

Interview Question – What was one boss or manager that you did not like or get a long with and why   Answer Question
