Merchandising Assistant Interview

Merchandising Assistant
Monroe, WI

I applied online and the process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at Swiss Colony in April 2013.

Interview Details – i had 1 phone interview that was a general screening process, then the second interview was with merchandising management. Questions were fairly general, more about possibilities then actual merchandising knowledge

Interview Question – honestly this was the easiest interview I have ever experienced, I do not think they expected to have someone apply for this position that had any merchandising background/degree   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – Negotiate more, I think my original offer was too low with my education level

Customer Service Representative Interview

Customer Service Representative
Hannibal, MO

I applied in-person and the process took a day - interviewed at Swiss Colony in August 2010.

Interview Details – I applied at Swiss Colony because it wa the only company hiring at the time. I went into their offices and filled out the application on paper, then redid the application on a computer and completed a small assessment, then it was a tour of the facility before I sat down with someone for the official interview with what I thought was a Human Resources employee but later found out it was a CSR like myself, after the interview I was told that I'd hear from them shortly and it was weeks before I heard from them. Then I was told it would be 6 weeks before I would start the position.

Interview Question – Can you please describe to me one of the most rewarding experiences you've had doing this position at another company?   View Answer

Negotiation Details – There was no negotiation phase for this position. They don't offer you a chance to negotiate for a position or pay. They want bodies for the floor and if you want a full time position, forget it.

Director, Creative Services Interview

Director, Creative Services

The process took 3 weeks - interviewed at Swiss Colony in August 2011.

Interview Details – Intially had an interview with the HR person that went OK. She was not informed of the exact details of the postion, so was not able to answer many questions to gear up for a second interview. Second interview was with two V.P.s. I felt like I was very prepared for the interview but was blindsided by questtions that were not clearly communicated in the job description. I wish I had done more research on what the challeges were for the department through past or current employees. Was called two week later saying they were not moving forward with the interview process.

Interview Question – `What was the last time you helped implement and create a new process   Answer Question
