    FT Sales Interview

    Anonymous Employee
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at Prada.

    Interview

    There was an initial phone interview in which we then decided to meet in person. The manager met me (late) at the meeting spot. She just asked general questions about what I currently do and what I knew about Prada. She then proceeded to ask me who were some great employees at my current employer-so she could scope them out on LinkedIn.

    Interview Questions

    • Answered questions about my current job such as what were our dollar amount plans for the month, personal sales goals, getting into specifics that she knew were wrong to ask. UNPROFESSIONAL.   1 Answer

    Sales Assistant Interview

    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Prada (Bal Harbour, FL) in November 2014.

    Interview

    was told to apply through their current temp agency (24seven) I honestly didnt really have a full interview, just a quick talk, in person, when I went to apply. I actually went seeking a Sales position since that was my background. I met the manager, and after waiting around for a while, we spoke very briefly. I left thinking I was applying through the agency for the sales position I applied for. However, it wasnt until my first day that i actually found out what I was really doing (sales assistant) but I stayed regardless thinking it would be a good opportunity

    Many interviews, first with HR, then Flagship Deputy and then flagship director. The first interview went though my basic experiences, my motivation for the company and where I want to go with them.

    Intern Interview

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 6+ weeks. I interviewed at Prada (Central District (Hong Kong)) in February 2015.

    Interview

    I went through two rounds of interviews and an excel assessment for this part time intern position. First round was an interview with a HR manager. Typical Qs: why Prada, why this industry (because it's not related to my university major), explain your employment history, what do you think of the job and the working environment, etc. Nothing special. Second round was an interview with line managers (supposed to be three people, but two of them were not free so I ended up with an one-on-one interview. Again, pretty typical Qs. The manager explained the job duties again and check with expectations. After the second interview, I stayed to complete a 30-min excel assessment, which was mainly about pivot table/ chart skills, familiarity of excel functions. Overall friendly and smooth.

    Interview Questions

    Negotiation

    The salary rate is a bit low compared to other companies. They said it's the standard intern rate for them...not quite able to negotiate on this.
