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

    No previous test before interview. Go through my resume and talk about my experience during the interview. All they care about is your attitude for sales. They said they offer very well benefit for employer. It's hard to be the employer, though.

    I applied through college or university - 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!

    I applied online - interviewed at Salvatore Ferragamo.

    Interview Details

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

    Interview Questions
    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.

    Application Details

    I applied through other source. 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.

    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 Questions
    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.
