    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at Fossil.

    Interview

    My first interview was with the store manager and the second was with the district manager on the phone. The process was easy and relaxed. I told them about myself and why I felt I was fit for the position. It was easier having been a sales associate wanting to be promoted because I already knew a lot about the company's culture and values.

    The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Fossil.

    Interview

    Everyone was late. No respect for time. Yes. This is a watch company. But time is of no value. Each interviewer mentioned meetings always start late and end late. The higher up the food chain the less time matters.

    Brand Specialist Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Richardson, TX
    No Offer
    Negative Experience

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Fossil (Richardson, TX) in October 2017.

    Interview

    HR reached out via email to schedule a phone interview. Phone interview went well, HR was super nice and friendly. They called me in for an in person interview and I met with 2 people from the department. I thought it went really well and I connected with the team and HR said they would update me on my status within a few days. I called to follow up the next week and still have not heard back. A generic email or phone call saying I was not selected would have been appreciated from a company I thought was professional.

    Sales Associate Interview

    Anonymous Employee in New York, NY
    Accepted Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. I interviewed at Fossil (New York, NY).

    Interview

    I had a group interview with about 5 other people. After waiting for the others to arrive the manager took us to the back room for the interview. Pretty typical group interview, they asked a question and went down the line as we answered. They might ask you to pretend to sell a product to them if the group is small. They were really friendly and tried to make us feel more comfortable as we were clearly nervous.

    Customer Service Representative Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Richardson, TX
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Fossil (Richardson, TX) in October 2016.

    Interview

    The interview was very laid back and took about 20 min. You interview with two people and are asked very basic customer service representative questions. They want you to be yourself and not wear something too formal. All in all if you come in with a positive attitude I think most anyone could get through the process at Fossil.

    Assistant Manager Interview

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Fossil (San Francisco, CA) in September 2016.

    Interview

    Got a call from the store manager the day after posting my resume online. Had initial phone interview then was invites to interview with store manager and regional face to face. Manager kept in contact through out the process prior to meeting. Interview face to face was pretty basic, nothing irregular. Felt as though a connection was made, I was even asked what my salary expectations were. They told me that it wasn't to far out of a possibility. Was told by both interviewers that I would here back by the following Wednesday. No follow up happened. Kept in limbo. Fossil mamagers: I believe that if a candidate respected your time to answer emails, return phone calls and actually show up for the interview, please show the same respect and let the candidates know either way if they did or did not get the postion. Unprofessional behavior.

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at Fossil (Dallas, TX) in September 2016.

    Interview

    Brief interview screening, moved to 2nd interview with 2 managers from the department. Overall experience was great. The staff was warm and welcoming, high energy and seemed to really love what they do. I signed in and went theough 2 interviews at their job fair and recieved offer in 3-5 days. When they asked me if I had any questions, I asked about the watch I was wearing and how they would handle a smaller repair. They explained the process then offered to have it fixed for me while I was in the interview. This just goes to show the level of customer service they have and the length they will go to keep their customer base. I am excited to start working for them!
