    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5 daysinterviewed at Vince.

    Interview

    The hiring process went well, I was scoped by the corporate executives in New York to interview at the Los Angeles corporate store. I went in and interviewed with Gaby the following week and it was kind of award..... Once again another company who hires by the color of your skin and not the content of your resume. These people loved me over the phone because I sound like a white girl, but when they seen that I was black it was a turn off.

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeksinterviewed at Vince in January 2015.

    Interview

    There isn't a Vince. physical store yet. The new store would be opening in Camarillo Premium Outlets on Feb. 1 so we had our interview in a nearby Starbucks.

    I submitted my resume 3rd week of December and received a call on Jan 5. and had the interview the following day. The interview lasted for about 10 minutes. They were really nice and more of a getting to know type of interview. nothing very hard.

    They asked situational questions, too, so be prepared for that. After the interview, they said they'd give me a call.

    then a week after, I received an email saying that they have decided to proceed with another candidate.

    I like the fact that they gave feedback immediately after a week as some companies keep you hanging for weeks.

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at Vince.

    Interview

    It was very quick. As soon I submitted my resume, I got a call back within the two days. I met up with the district manager when she was in town checking out the new store. She was very nice. We basically talked about my experience with retail and outlet, and she talked about how the store would be run. An offer was made a week later but because there was another store opening in another city, I didn't find out what my pay and benefits are and I didn't want to accept unless I have it on paper until two weeks later.

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 2 daysinterviewed at Vince (White Plains, NY) in June 2013.

    Interview

    I was interviewed by the store manager who was amazing. However she is no longer with the company. It was more of a conversation than an interview. I just walked in the store and handed in my resume and got a response a couple of days later. After my interview, I heard back two days later and they told me I got the job. I filled out all of my paperwork the same day and started a week later.

    Interview Questions

    • It was more of a conversation than it was an interview. But they ask all of the basic questions. Like Why do you want to work at Vince? How do you clientele, and etc.   1 Answer

    Negotiation

    The base pay for a key holder is 11.50 for p/t and 12.50 for f/t. for the company. But they're willing to offer more, so I'd suggest to ask a few dollars higher.

    I applied online. The process took 2 daysinterviewed at Vince in January 2011.

    Interview

    The manager at the time seemed uneducated and not the most professional. I was asked basic interview questions that seemed printed offline, nothing challenging. The interview was a breeze, but mainly because I didn't take the store manager interviewing me seriously.

    Be sure and know about VINCE and convey what you like about the brand. Be prepared to discuss your numbers at previous jobs; sales goals, UPT, ADS, etc.
