    Operations Specialist Interview

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 1 dayinterviewed at Oakley (Foothill Ranch, CA).

    Interview

    Phone interview first. I was told in a joking manner if I wore business attire I'd be shot. That was funny. This was a panel interview with 2 HR personnel and the hiring manager. They made me feel relaxed and asked standard questions. We went through each section of my resume. They asked for examples as asked me to be specific. They wanted to know how I identified with the brand as well. Like if I was into sports, etc. They asked what ERP systems I've used like SAP, etc. I felt good in the end.

    Product Line Manager Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Orange, CA
    Declined Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter – interviewed at Oakley (Orange, CA).

    Interview

    WASTE OF TIME. In short - I flew in for the interview, got the job offer, but it wasn't for the title/position I came in to interview for! The most off-putting, confused and unprofessional interview experience of my life. They changed the category they were considering me for DURING the interview (no heads up to me beforehand) and then offered me a completely different position/pay grade (lower) than originally discussed. I would have never gone through with the process if I knew what position they were really interested in me for. Super tacky and dishonest. This company has no class.

    Store Manager Interview

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 1 dayinterviewed at Oakley.

    Interview

    Vague questions. In an impromptu manner (literally out of the blue), I was introduced to the interviewer (Asst Mgr) and explained that I had never been in one of their stores (and therefore knew nothing about the company). She remained vague and was never specific on what exactly she was looking for in an answer. Felt like I was being "thrown under the bus." Not quite sure where this went wrong. Should I have taken my response in a different direction? I was conservatively dressed from a previous interview. Full dress suit. Their merchandise is more youthful, casual, and sporty. Dunno. Hope this helps someone else. It obviously didn't help me.

    Interview Questions

    • Let's say we were doing a "touch base" with a sales associate just coming in for their shift... What would you say to them about the store?   1 Answer

    Marketing Director Interview

    Anonymous Employee
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online – interviewed at Oakley.

    Interview

    Apply on their website, then do not hear anything until 10 weeks go by. Finally get an email about congrats we will talk to you. Have the initial call with the Oakley house recruiter, who doesn't know all that much about the position, let alone what skills, abilities it would take to excel in the position. Tells me she will know more in a few days when talking with the hiring manager. Don't hear anything back and a week later reach out via email and no response. Highly unprofessional, just tell me whatever your reasoning may be that you are continuing the search and respectfully part ways. Easier just to ignore people I guess.

    Intern Interview

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at Oakley.

    Interview

    I had two interviews. One of the interviews was at HQ in Foothill Ranch and another was over the phone. I thought they were very fair and the interviewer really asked questions that allowed me to talk about my best qualities. The interviews also had bits of casual moments where the interviewer asked me about my interests outside of school and work. I had my first interview right before the holidays, so it (understandably) took some time before I had the second interview, but after the second one, they were very fast on getting back to me.

    Interview Questions

    Negotiation

    I am mainly concerned about gaining experience, so I did not feel the need to negotiate my pay. They were open to discussing pay, even though I wasn't overly concerned about it. As for hours, they were extremely flexible and were willing to work around my school schedule.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at Oakley (Foothill Ranch, CA).

    Interview

    I submitted my resume online after seeing an opening on indeed. HR recruiter called a few days later. Set up a phone interview with the team for the following week. Team asked a lot of questions about current/past experience. Nothing out of the ordinary. After the phone interview with the team the recruiter called and set up a face to face in California. I wore jeans and a t-shirt to the interview, it was a super friendly laid back environment. Interviews were a similar feel, never felt under presser. Had the chance at the end of the interview to hit up the employee store and get an employee discount even though I didn't have a job offer! Super sweet discount! Phone call the following week from the recruiter with a job offer. Process was crazy fast and super smooth!

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 1 dayinterviewed at Oakley (Foothill Ranch, CA) in January 2015.

    Interview

    Interview is really cool. Oakley mandates onsite interview. Dressing casually is really important else you would be overdressed in Oakley (Trust me on this!!!) - First Round: Phone Interview - Second Round: Onsite Whiteboard interview (3 phases of 1/2 hour each, in a single day)
