    Part Time Sales Associate Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Toronto, ON (Canada)
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Ardene (Toronto, ON (Canada)) in July 2016.

    Interview

    I applied online and got a call after couple of days for a face to face interview. The interviewer was very friendly. She gave a brief information about the company and the role. Then she asked about why do you want to work for ardene? What is customer service mean to you? How do handle a dispute with a co worker? What do you do if you see someone stealing money? The interview went well and she asked me to call the store sometime the next week. Its been three weeks now and I can not get hold of her. She is never available on the phone. They should be at least informing the candidates if they are not selected or at least attend their call and say that you are not selected. I find it very unprofessional.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at Ardene (Toronto, ON (Canada)) in July 2016.

    Interview

    So I arrived on time to the location and the manager just came out and we sat outside on a mall bench. The interview questions were quite stereotypical, and not like my previous one at all. So I ended up sounding quite stereotypical as well in my answers (My opinion). She asked 5ish questions and it was really quick. After completing the her questions, she asked if I had any questions. And that was it.

    I met up with the store manager and she was great. The interview went by smoothly and I felt very comfortable throughout the process. She asked me basic questions that were easy to answer. It wasn't super formal, she had a laid back attitude and a good personality. I would highly recommend applying here, it's a good first job to have.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at Ardene (Winnipeg, MB (Canada)) in May 2015.

    Interview

    Sat outside the store and was asked a few basic questions about previous experience and why Ardene. I was interviewed by the store manager so the process was quick. If you are interviewed by the assistant or third key first, you will have a second screening by the store manager before you are hired.

    Interview

    Easy and quick. Regular interview questions. Pretty much only asked behavioural questions, just your typical stuff. Also asked questions about availability and if you've had previous retail experience. They prefer if you do, however they are willing to train if you don't.
