    Application Details

    I applied in-person. The process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Fossil in August 2014.

    Interview Details

    Applied in-store and set up an interview on the spot. Met with the assistant manager a few days later. She asked pretty standard questions; describe a time you dealt with a difficult customer, what does Fossil mean to you, what does Fossil represent, why do you want to work here...basic stuff. Then she had me demonstrate a sales experience with another worker. About a week later I got a call for a second interview with the (brand new just in this week) store manager. Met with him (outside when it was 100 plus degrees) and he just asked me the same questions and said he was trying to figure out the store and what its needs are.
