    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 daysinterviewed at Soma Intimates in September 2014.

    Interview

    I was interview by the head store manager then the associate store manager. The SM(store manager) was very nice and calm, which made the process seem very quick and easy, as well as the ASM who laid back. By the end of the interview(took an hour) both were referring to what I would start off doing,which insured me that I would get the job. The ASM showed me how to do a bra fitting and ask me if I ever worked(no work experience) but once I mentioned my volunteer work and my curent position in a committee she seemed to accept that. It took two days before they called me with the job offer which I accepted.

The interview was group of just myself and other girl. We explained are background in retail and why it meant so much too possible work for Soma. Also she asked us what was our most satisfying and challenging experience; as well as how will we handle three customer when is only one of us in the front (one customer is at the register, the other is very anxious to checkout, and the third customer is asking for a bra fitting) . We asked her as a group what did she look for in an employee. She simply told us an employee who is willing to help the customer and work self efficiency with little help when needed.

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 7 weeksinterviewed at Soma Intimates (Chicago, IL) in May 2014.

    Interview

    The whole interview progress took 7 weeks between phone interviews and face to face, although the interviewers were professional, they were very poor in communication. I had to call several times to see what was going on. Although the told me I was still in the running, in the end they didn't even bother calling me to let me know they had offered someone else the job. In that aspect I would say very unprofessional.

    Interview Questions

    • None of the questions were very difficult, was a pretty simple interview, both the manager and district manager read questions that they had on a sheet in front of them.   Answer Question
