I applied online and the process took 1+ week - interviewed at Salvatore Ferragamo in July 2014.

Public Relations Intern/Internship Interview

Public Relations Intern/Internship

I applied through college or university and interviewed at Salvatore Ferragamo.

Interview Details – I applied for this internship through a career fair that my school had hosted. I met with Carolyn Ocean, HR Director, for a first round interview/screening. She asked me to tell me about myself, why I wanted to work for the company, what do i know about the company and what can I contribute. Carolyn was fairly serious and came across as someone who preferred answers that were quick and to the point!

Sales Associate
Troy, MI

I applied online and interviewed at Salvatore Ferragamo.

Interview Details – I interviewed w/hr and the general manager for the Troy store. The boutique was just opening.

Interview Question – I don't feel like any questions were difficult   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – There wasn't really any negotiation. At the time the boutique opened pay was $12 an hour for full time employees plus 5% comm. By the time I left the hourly rate had been reduced to $9 an hour and 4% comm. 401K match was offered when boutique opened but then cut by the time that I left. I feel that organization was going through a lot of growning pains when I left but that now things are on the upswing.

Miramar, FL

I applied through other source and the process took a day - interviewed at Salvatore Ferragamo in December 2008.

Interview Details – I was so excited about an interview with one of the most highly regarded companies in the fashion industry. I prepared for the interview with great enthusiasm. From the moment I walked in, the first impression was not good. I didn't even get a firm handshake. The two men interviewing me were both extremely standoffish and stuck up. They did not give me a chance to ask questions about company details and proceses, nor about the position. They seemed very unsure of what they were looking for.

Interviewed at Salvatore Ferragamo

Interview Details – we met for a brief chat and it was very informal. as I didnìt hold any work experience and was applying for an intern job, I suppose they were not expecting me to prove my skills, they just wanted to see if I was smart and could do the job.

Interview Question – I did not find the interview difficult.   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – very simple, as it was an intern job the salary was just a small refund, and I did not expect something more than that.
