    Model/Sales Associate Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Honolulu, HI
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at Gilly Hicks (Honolulu, HI).

    Interview

    I was recruited at my University campus prior to going to the interview. Before going to the interview you go online and choose a time slot which fits your schedule. The interview was conducted as a group. There were two managers who conducted the interview together. The asked a few pretty basic questions and everyone took turns answering the questions. I wasn't a fan of the group interview since it just seemed like everyone repeated what the previous person said. If you want to stand out, you should try to come up with a more unique response.

    Anonymous Employee

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took a week. I interviewed at Gilly Hicks.

    Interview

    The interview was a group interview, where they ask you questions like "what does diversity mean to you?" Overall, the interview is easy and the questions are more about your personality. They don't particularly care if you have experience, but more of if you are a "good fit" and can represent the Gilly style. Basically be happy, smily, super friendly, and cute.

    Model/Sales Associate Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Miami, FL

    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at Gilly Hicks (Miami, FL).

    Interview

    Sometimes you will be recruited by a manager or another sales associate within the store and will ask you to complete an online application or you can go into the store and fill out an application on a computer; it takes about 15 minutes to fill out the application but make sure you have your desired hours to work already planned out to make the process easier & faster. After that they tell you to come in on either a Tuesday or Friday for the interview.
    Interviews are in group form and they ask you to describe their store/company style, what diversity means to you, and to describe yourself; they'll also chat with you about yourself to get a better feeling of who you are as a person. It's good to dress nicely, not too casual, but you don't need to wear a suit either. Appearance-wise, make sure you show off your best physical features and try not to wear too much crazy makeup or seem to outrageous--Keep everything natural-looking basically. Women are hired as models (sales associate) or impactors but males can only work as impactors.

    Impact Team Member Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Tukwila, WA
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Gilly Hicks (Tukwila, WA) in June 2013.

    Interview

    I walked into the store and asked how to apply, so I got the code and signed up online for Tuesday. I wore all GH stuff to my interview, so a white top and blue cardigan and flip flops, but since they only sell sweats I decided to wear Hollister jeans, cuffed. Make sure to arrive early so you make a good impression. In my interview there were 3 people including me, 2 people applying for the Model position and then me for Impact. I had worked for Hollister for a year beforehand, so I knew all of the questions for the Model position, but the Impact ones were different. Know a good time when you worked as a team with other people, and one time when you were pressed for time on a task but still had to do a good job. Then of course, know why diversity is important in the workplace. Be bubbly and smile a lot, and be confident in your answers.

    At the end of my interview the manager said she'd call us in a week when we got the job. They called me that Saturday and said orientation was on Sunday at 9. It was a little stressful to wait that long, especially with prior experience, but I guess getting the job in the end was all that matters. You get one free outfit when you go to orientation.
