New York, NY

The process took 2 days - interviewed at Topshop in November 2009.

Interview Details – first round consisted of a basic phone interview, very straight forward. Then HR will ask you to come into their new york city office for a group interview. At the time I applied, everybody that applied in my group (6 people) made it to the sales floor. The interview consisted of team games and mini projects about topshop's brand and image, such as magazine colleges of a certain fashion trend.
