    Assistant Stylist Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in New York, NY
    Declined Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Bergdorf Goodman (New York, NY) in May 2017.

    Interview

    Applied online and received a call the next day from HR and interviewed a couple days later. Interview with HR was easy, they said working in the store on the floor was like The Devil Wears Prada and if you wanted to move up to corporate you had to initiate that. After that, I went to the store and interviewed with the stylist who also said it was cut throat and basically that a lot of people weren't very nice. I was offered the position, but didn't accept immediately I asked if I could shift the hours by 30min they said they would get back to me and when I emailed and called people in HR and the stylist I was completely ignored.

    Applied online, once you are contracted by HR if they are interested in meeting with you, you are asked to take an online retail math test and a personality test.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5 weeks. I interviewed at Bergdorf Goodman (New York, NY) in January 2016.

    Interview

    Interviewed with a few different people. They all had really nice personalities and I felt good energy from each of them. Bergdorf's is 'Cream of the Crop' so it was quite shocking to find out how little they pay. A luxury retailer should be able to afford a better payout to their employees.

    Store Design Interview

    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at Bergdorf Goodman (New York, NY).

    Interview

    I applied online and HR person was extremely efficient, responding to me the next day. I first had an interview with this HR person, and it went very well. She then booked an interview with a Design Director the same week. This person was extremely unprofessional, I sensed an attitude during the interview and they didn't even send me a response back to my "thank you" letter.

    Extremely unprofessional. I hope they don't treat their business consultants and partners the same way.
