    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Buffalo Exchange (Eugene, OR).

    Interview

    There were three interviews: phone call, in the store floor, with store manager. In the phone call interview, it was very relaxed. I was asked a couple questions such as: why do you want to work for Buffalo? Why do you think you're a good fit for the store? The second phase was they have you go to their store and have you pick out 3 items you would buy for them and 3 you would pass on. After, they gave me a questionnaire on attributes I think I have. The third phase was a formal interview with the store manager and assistant manager.

    What I hadn't realized was how serious this company takes fashion. They expect you to learn it outside of work. Know the trends, dress accordingly, breathe/eat/absorb fashion and at the end of the day for me, I just needed a job.

    Interview

    You have 3 interviews. My mgr set up an interview literally when I came in to apply, which was nice. feels like everywhere in NY you have to wait like three months for them to call you back. The first one was about me. The second one was to pick some things on the floor. the third was to offer me the job.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Buffalo Exchange (Eugene, OR) in June 2016.

    Interview

    I completed all 3 parts of the interview in one day. The store was very busy and the the first 2 parts of the interview were done in the middle of all the chaos. They seemed interested, but called the next day to say they would not be moving forward with the process. Definitely not my favorite interview ever.

    Entry-level Buyer Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Buffalo Exchange (Astoria, NY) in May 2016.

    Interview

    Interview happened over the course of 2 days and lasted 30-45 minutes each time. The interview took place in the middle of store, so it was a little awkward standing there with all the customers walking around. The first time, I was shown a selection of 5 clothing items and asked which I would buy and which I would reject and why. I took a personality quiz and was asked to return the next day.

    When I returned the next day, I was asked to select 3 items from a dress rack that would sell quickly and 3 that wouldn't. The interviewer said that they would call me in a few days, but never did.

    The location was pretty spacious and it seemed like the coworkers got along. However, this isn't a job for somebody who isn't okay being with their feet all day.

    Interview Questions

    • Describe a time when you gave excellent customer service.   Answer Question
    • What are some trends that are in this season and some that are out?   Answer Question

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Buffalo Exchange (Portland, OR) in April 2016.

    Interview

    I applied in person, a manager asked me a couple fashion questions then gave me a 2nd interview date. At the second interview I met with a different manager and she made me choose between items I think would sell quickly and not so quickly then she provided me with paper work to run my references, background etc. finally I was called for a THIRD interview where again I choose from clothes that sell fast and not fast then he said they would contact me within 72 hours. its been over a week and no call. I finally decided to call and a different manager said they decided not to move forward with my interview. No one called me, no one left me a voicemail advising me about their decision. Honestly I am glad I wasn't hired because the lack of organization and communication is awful. Dodged a bullet on that one.
