    Corporate Director Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Weehawken, NJ
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Weehawken, NJ
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at Swatch in September 2013.

    Interview Details

    Applied via job website and received a call within a few days. However, I feel that my time was wasted as I was asked to come in for several interviews and when I was about to receive the offer and provided my salary history, I never heard back. I was subsequently reached out to by a headhunter for this same position who then mentioned that they were really not looking to pay competitively; which is fine. However, I would have appreciated if Swatch's corporate HR had given me that feedback and not just dropped communication. Everyone did seem very nice and collaborative and I may have considered a salary reduction had I gotten the opportunity to negotiate with them.

    Store Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in San Diego, CA
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in San Diego, CA
    Application Details

    I applied in-person. The process took 6 weeksinterviewed at Swatch in September 2011.

    Interview Details

    Was long and drawn out. I could not get ahold of the interviewing DM. Very unprofessional. They 'sorta' offered me the job but then didnt call back for a week and a half - even after repeated attempts and messages. I had written them off until they finally called. This is the perfect indication of how Swatch works. Everything is slow and HR overrides all the best candidates. Paperwork was CRIPPLING to the hiring process and they had no trainer so I had to go it alone by reading hours of binders/ trial&error.
