    Application Details

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

    Interview Details

    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.

    Interview Details

    The interview was interesting the SM Molly, was nice and very confidence about what the company was looking for in employee there. She explained how Soma difference from competitor, its not always about the sales but how you educated the customer on what bra or panty fix her need. 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.

    Assistant Store Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Chicago, IL
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 7 weeksinterviewed at Soma Intimates in May 2014.

    Interview Details

    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

    Interview Details

    First Interviewed with a store manager which was an extremely positive experience. Then got called either later that day or the next to set up another interview with the store manager that I would be working under, as well as with the DM. The second store manager interview was also extremely positive, then came the dm. She seemed super friendly and loved my experience and said she would be in touch. A week went by with no word, nor ever checking my references, so I called and they told me they decided to move forward with another candidate.

    Part Time Sales Lead Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Dallas, TX
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Dallas, TX
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Soma Intimates in April 2014.

    Interview Details

    I applied on-line and two weeks later received a call for an interview. I arrived for the interview ten minutes early and waited for roughly twenty minutes while the assistant manager wrapped up a series of phone calls. I applied for the Store Manager position and found out I was interviewing for the PT Sales Lead. I couldn't figure out why until she said she couldn't find my application in the system. I gave her my resume and she asked why I was looking for PT work when I was a store manager already, and then I learned the Store Manager position was already filled.

    I finished the interview anyway, though honestly it wasn't really much of an interview. She read from the list of requirements and responsibilities for the PT Sales Lead position and stopped every few bullets to say "yes, you have experience already in that," and had no questions for me. My entire interview was her reading the responsibilities for a job I didn't apply for to me. Not her fault, the 'system' lost my application for a job already filled, so yanno. She said she'd call me in an hour to come back in for another interview.
