    Accepted Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview


    I applied in-person. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Bata (Venice (Italy)) in February 2013.


    I went at the shop in Venice (Italy) and spoke with manager, I left my application and resume and after a month I received the first call. We scheduled the interview. One week later I was interviewed by the shop manager, she asked me routine questions about my career goals, my experience, how do I plan my future. Everything very informal and relaxed. After two weeks I received another call for a second interview, this time with the Senior Manager and a member of the Creative Team. This time the interview was more formal and we discussed about selling methods and problem solving.
