    Long interview process. I had 1 phone interview and I had to come in to the office twice. I met with a total of 6 people. I meant with all managers in my department and senior management.

    Planner Interview

    Anonymous Employee in New York, NY

    Neutral Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Coach (New York, NY) in February 2011.

    Interview

    Marathon interview. I met with 6 people for 30 min - 1 hour each (4 one-on-one interviews, and 1 panel interview), starting from 9am and I got out around 1pm. It was like a test of endurance and by the end I was exhausted. Each interview in itself, however, was not too difficult if you have endurance, and people who are smart and know fashion merchandising succeed. Also, Coach has really invested a lot into its systems and system training, so it's a good idea to emphasize your knowledge of excel, access, sql, sap, etc. Everyone who I met with is very personable and gives information readily, which is amazing since I met with people at all levels, from the Planner level to the Executive VP.

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Coach.

    Interview

    Ultimately, the hiring and interview process went very well; however, my experience is probably different from almost everyone else's as I was applying for a position out of state. I had a number of interviews - initial conversation with the store manager, a more formal telephone interview with the same store manager, a face-to-face interview with a store manager in my area, a telephone interview with the District Manager and then another interview (though very brief) with the store manager of the store I would ultimately wind up joining (though I did not realize this at the time).

    Interview Questions

    • Questions were very typical for a retail management position. 1) Tell me about a time you developed someone for a promotion/ fill your position?   Answer Question
    • Tell me how you manage having to complete multiple tasks at once?   Answer Question
    • Why Coach?   Answer Question
    • How do you like to lead? How do you like to be led?   Answer Question
    • Where do you want from Coach?   Answer Question
