    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Fossil.

    Interview

    Had a call from a corporate recruiter who chewed up almost an hour of my time asking standard behavioral questions. At the very end, asked up compensation expectations and did not have a clear idea of what the range for the role was or what Consulting salaries are post MBA. Recruiter did not seem to really know what the job requirements were.

    Customer Service Representative Interview

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Fossil (Richardson, TX) in April 2018.

    Interview

    The Process: I applied via LinkedIn, was contacted for a Phone Screen by a Recruiter, and after I passed the Phone Screen, I met with the Hiring Manager and a Team Leader at their Richardson office. All of this occurred within a period of 7 days.

    The Good: The environment was positive and welcoming. When you first enter the building, you really do get a sense of how laid-back the environment is. To my surprise, 95% of the employees seemed incredibly relaxed... And if I had been wearing a gorgeous Sweater, hipster Blue Jeans, and Converse sneakers, that would have been just fine, as long as it adhered to their definition of what's "trendy."

    Moving along, IMO, the interview was better than most.

    The Hiring Manager wasn't disrespectful, nor did she act as if I didn't matter.

    But..., it wasn't an ideal interview.

    The Bad: I didn't like the interview was set up, nor did I like the way that the Associate Team Leader was constantly staring at me, as if she was constantly assessing me. That within itself, made me feel uncomfortable as if I didn't measure up.

    The Ugly: Despite their original promise, I wasn't given a tour of the office (that within itself let me know that they did not want to wast their time with me). Even worse, the Recruiter and the Hiring Manager failed to offer feedback about the interview after they had promised to do so. As a matter of fact, the Hiring Manager seemed perturbed that I'd emailed her a thank you note, and the Recruiter was no better.

    In the end, I did not get the job but perhaps given their penchant for layoff's and a lower rate of salary, this wasn't the right fit for me.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Fossil in February 2018.

    Interview

    I got emailed by a recruiter asking to set up a phone interview! We set up a time to talk and the phone interview was about a half hour. They told me it would be a week or two but I never heard back so I am assuming they went with different candidates to do the video interview although my job application on the site hasn't been closed out.

    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.
