Just had 1st step and wanted to provide info b/c it was fresh in my mind. No offer, b/c just started the process. Will update. Update 08/20 Was not offered position.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Fossil (Orlando, FL).

    Interview

    Picked up an application, placed it a day later. Two days later got a call for an interview with the DM. Had one interview and offered a job on the spot. Interview lasted about 45mins- 1hr. DM was very relaxed/ confident and simply smiled and asked questions regarding management. Dug deep but overall look for personality and fit to the culture they want to portray to the customer

    Interview Questions

    Negotiation

    offer was higher than asking pay. They pride them self in leading industry in pay.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Fossil in August 2012.

    Interview

    The interview process involved 3 phone conversations. The first and final were by the District Manager. The middle interview was performed by the Store Manager. This process was based on a newly opening store, likely not the same format for an existing location. The District Manager was clearly pumping up the company to be the greatest thing ever, almost as if she was trying to make me feel like I should be considered lucky to even be receiving consideration.

    Hindsight being 20/20, I wish I picked up more on that at the time. There was also a clear emphasis on appearance and fashion. I understand there is a certain level of importance on that in Retail, but I would find out soon enough, that is about the first through fifth priorities at Fossil. That is again something I wished I would have picked up on then.

    Basically, the only other point of the interview process was convincing the interviewer that you could do a lot with a little (as in, no payroll).

    Interview Questions

    • There was no difficult question. Just be prepared to talk about exceeding expectations from an allotted budgeted hours perspective.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    No negotiation involved.

    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Fossil (Orlando, FL) in September 2013.

    Interview

    The hiring process was very simple it was a paper application which I got called back from and interviewed with one other person. From there I was invited to a panel interview with a couple other store managers and a district manager. Overall people seemed nice, interested, & professional.

    Interview Questions

    • There weren't many difficult questions as long as you know the business and how to motivate a team to sell and such. However, there were a lot of questions and all coming at once since it was a panel interview with at least 5 store managers and 1 district manager.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    Not much to negotiate since their pay is one of the best considering other retailers I know of in the Central FLA area.

    Assistant Store Manager Interview

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took a week. I interviewed at Fossil (Durham, NC) in January 2014.

    Interview

    Spoke with the Store manager for less than an hour after I submitted my resume. The SM gave me a list of questions that the District Manager would ask me during my phone interview, which was unexpected. I wasn't really challenged or asked any difficult questions, but just an overview of my previous work experience.

    Negotiation

    I was given a firm offer which I counter-offered. There was no negotiation so I took the offer.
