    Interview

    Met with the manager in the back of the store. The manager was professional, but personable. The interview wasn't too long. Questions were pretty standard for retail. Asked you to share situations you encountered that show ability to deal with difficult people.

    Communications Interview

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Coach (New York, NY).

    Interview

    I had a screening with HR. I was asked basic questions and was told my information would be passed along to the director of the department. A week after speaking with HR, I received notification that the director would like to interview me for the opening. A few days later I had the interview with the director and can you say very bizarre. Initially I was asked four basic questions (straight up text book). What are your strengths? Tell me about yourself? Why Coach? After those basic questions, I was asked if I had any questions. I was shocked because I anticipated more questions and definitely more in-depth questions. Nevertheless, I assumed the director wasn't that experienced interviewing so I didn't hold that against the person. However, the interview took a weird turn after that. I asked my questions and received four word answers. I changed my researched based questions to soft ones, like, " Why do you like Coach" assuming I was boring the director with my previous questions. Yet, I was still getting four word answers. At that point I threw in the towel and thanked the director for the interview. The director didn't even counter with next steps and I knew I didn't have the job so I didn't even ask for next steps. This interview was a waste of my time. I feel like the director was just interviewing me to reach a quota. Yet, in the back of my mind I feel like my ethnicity had a major factor in the lack of engagement.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. I interviewed at Coach (Locust Grove, GA) in April 2017.

    Interview

    Apply online or in store. Bring resume as an added touch. They call you in for an interview usually with the hiring manager. If they like you they will ask for you to go on a second interview usually with the store manager. The whole process can take up to a month if they are not fully yet in their hiring stage to hire you ( they stall by saying we are still reviewing or we will give you a call back in the next week). It does not mean they will not hire you or they are not interested , it solely just means they have to be granted the okay to finish up the process and hire you .

    Interview Questions

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Coach (New York, NY) in March 2017.

    Interview

    Honestly, after interviewing the young lady from HR, I had no interest in pursuing this position. She was very passive, a lot of "so" "um" "like" was involved which was not helpful in the interview process. She was probably in an entry level position because I did not have an enjoyable experience interviewing her. No desire to work for Coach after this interview.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at Coach (New York, NY) in March 2017.

    Interview

    We were placed into a large room and departments were set up like a career fair. Little information was given for the positions offered and the interview process. It felt like a mess and after standing there for hours on lines it was exhausting.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Coach (Wrentham, MA).

    Interview

    It was very easy; they seem a bit desperate for employees because I was asked to join without an interview. I waited a good 2 months before even being started though.

    Creative Department Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    No Offer
    Negative Experience

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Coach.

    Interview

    I was supposed to have a phone screen on a Monday afternoon. This phone call was set up after a couple of emails to figure out when it could work for both, as usual. But the recruiter never called me.

    I sent her an email after this, asking if we could reschedule (assuming that she had forgotten about it or that she was very busy). I was totally being understanding and asked her in a very nice way. I've never got a response. I sent a second email later that week just asking if the position was still available and, again, she never got back to me.

    The experience was very shocking and discouraging since I had been referred by a friend who worked there by the time.
