    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter – interviewed at Prada (New York, NY).

    Interview

    Got a phone call from a recruiter about the position. Waited a very long time to hear back after they sent my resume out. Got confirmed for interview. It went well but then never heard back even after I sent a thank you email the following day. A week later I was told they had actually filled the position on the same day of my interview.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter – 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

    Many interviews, first with HR, then Flagship Deputy and then flagship director.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 6+ weeksinterviewed 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.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person – interviewed at Prada (London, England (UK)).

    Interview

    I went into one of the boutiques and handed in my cv! Within a week received a called from someone from HR who said come in for a interview to head office. Went along to interview and seen someone in the waiting area who was there for thee interview also. Spoke to her briefly but she didn't want to say much, as I told her I'm here for interview also. she told me she was waiting to be interviewed for 2nd stage as she just had an interview with the 1st person so straight away I realised there would be different stages there and then. The HR person called me in. I had the impression already that they knew what they were looking for. He asked me questions about my previous role, why I had left that role, why prada, when I think of prada what do I think, what's the difference between prada collection and mui mum collection? Etc! I answered the questions to the best of my ability but I guess it was not good enough, he replied to me saying that he would get back to me within two weeks to tell me for a 2nd stage! But for me I knew straight away I was not successful because the girl in the waiting area already told me that all the stages would be today! But clearly they guy was having me on which I thought was unfair and misleading. I left the building abit angry and knew I wasn't going to get the role I cried all the way to the train station. A few weeks gone by and I received the "unfortunately you were unsuccessful at this time..." Bla bla bla it upset me because he wasn't being truthfully with me in the 1st place.

    Visual Merchandiser Interview

    Anonymous Employee in London, England (UK)

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at Prada (London, England (UK)) in May 2014.

    Interview

    I was headhunted through Linkedin. Asked if I was interested in working for Prada, submitted a current CV, was invited to an initial interview at Head Office with the recruiter and manager was successful then invited for a 2nd round practical interview at a store. Then never heard back from them. An overall positive experience which was made extremely negative. When I had made my way for the 2nd round, I was given a call just as I reached the store to say that they had to rearrange for the following day. Which was already frustrating when you are working and having to book days off. The practical felt very pointless as the recruiter and the manager did not look interested throughout the whole interview from start to finish, despite a positive first round. I had my interview with another candidate and this was to "save time". We had to merchandise a wall, select an outfit for a typical Prada male then select 3 classic Prada pieces that every woman should have. I felt that this was already a losing battle as they seemed to be talk to the other candidate more and it was very intimidating as this was done prior to the opening and the shop staff were all standing on the side watching. I never heard back from them and I e-mailed the recruiter 3 weeks later asking for feedback as I assumed the role was filled and I received a blanket message "we felt all the other candidates was stronger". A few months later I was informed that the role was given internally. Which made the whole recruitment process effectively a waste of time.
