    Sales Associate Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Declined Offer

    Interview

    Initial communications were professional, respectful of me as a potential candidate (among many possible ones), and prompt. The interview process was equally professional and was not done in a rushed or impersonal manner. It was evident that they cared that the person they hired would get along well with his/her colleagues, would take pride in his/her work and meet all expectations for professionalism.

    Interview Questions

    • Role play on the sales floor where I had to do my best to engage the manager and persuade her to buy an outfit.   Answer Question

    Payroll Coordinator Assistant Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in New York, NY
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

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

    Interview

    Met with two separate people, the group head and the woman I would actually be the assistant to. The Group Head was very professional, asked typical questions. This part went fine, we talked for about half an hour. The woman I was to assist spent an hour and a half with me, in which I probably only spoke for 20-30 minutes. Something about me clearly bothered her, because she kept going on and on about how great she is at her job, as if trying to prove something to me. She also called me out on wearing heels 2-3 times in a very condescending tone. I'm sorry, it's an interview, aren't you supposed to wear heels?? Especially when interviewing for a fashion company? They weren't outlandish either, they were nude pumps...Was relieved I did not get an offer, it would not have worked out well for me to work directly with this awful woman.

    E-Commerce Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Ratingen (Germany)
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Esprit (Ratingen (Germany)) in January 2017.

    Interview

    The first step was to create a presentation, which I successfully passed to the interview phase.
    After a first email saying how I could go to the Headquarters for the interview, a first chance of heart and my interview should be done via Skype.
    Then, interview got cancelled and a new email was sent around 2 weeks later rescheduling it.
    On the day of the interview, I receive an email saying they were sorry but the position was filled internally, without the recruiters knowledge. No phone call or a more personal email, just a general email saying I would be part of their system for the 12 months, in case a new position came up. I have never seen such a lack of respect in a process.

    Easy Interview

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Esprit.

    Interview

    very easy interview
    standard questions about your background and job history
    very few situational questions
    if you interview in the store you may be asked to try and sell something to the manager on the spot but overall they just want to know that you can make sales targets so if you have previous experience with that definitely mention that in the interview

    Manager Interview

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Esprit (Sydney (Australia)) in March 2012.

    Interview

    Paper stage (online)-> Group Interview-> 1:1 interview with area manager -> reference check -> offer. Was quite laid back, the HR person was very helpful and always kept you updated. Questions were not too hard as long as you prepared for them and did you homework.
