    Planning Interview

    Anonymous Employee
    Accepted Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Guess?.

    Interview

    I got a call from HR a few weeks after submitting my application. She jumped straight into it and started asking me several basic questions- Why I was interested in working in retail/fashion etc. She then moved me onto the next round of interviews. I went into the office and did 3 interviews for 3 separate departments (CRM, Factor Planning, Retail Planning). None of the questions were out of the ordinary, however they do ask if you are familiar with using excel functions such as vlookups and pivot tables.

    I met one on one with the Store Manager for my first interview. My second interview was with the Store manager of another location. My third interview was over the phone with the District Manager. The questions were all very direct and to be expected.

    I applied in-person. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Guess?.

    Interview

    I applied in an actual store for a management position. I happen to give my application to a hiring manager and he told me that I would be contacted shortly. Sure enough, 30 minutes later the District Manager called me and wanted to set up a personal interview! I met with the DM and she gave me a very relaxed and thorough interview. I was offered the job 1 day later. She even paid me more than I expected coming from a much larger company. I trained for 1 week and they paid me for that time and were very thorough with the company's expectations.

    Associate Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Atlanta, GA
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I interviewed at Guess? (Atlanta, GA) in April 2008.

    Interview

    Right from the beginning all of the workers were friendly and upbeat. I could tell right from the start that it was a great environment to work in. The first interview was a group of myself and two others being interviewed. It was a lot of fun. Just seeing the work environment there made me anxious to start the job. And the amazing clothes and awesome discount as well. After that they did a background check which took a day and a half and I got a call with the offer. I took it and now I start on Tuesday. It was a great interview experience and it is an amazing company. Can not wait to start.

    Staff Accountant Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Los Angeles, CA
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Guess? (Los Angeles, CA) in July 2017.

    Interview

    This was a so awful and worst interview experience I ever had! I applied online and got a phone interview first. The HR told me that they do sponsor H1B visa for a international student and think I am a great fit for this position based on my background and scheduled an onsite interview for me. I went to their LA office for interview with two people. One is the Accounting Manager and another one is the Supervisor. When the interview started, the first thing they said is they do not sponsor work visa for international students. I was so shocking and angry! Why they provided me totally different info and why can't they communicate well in advance. Then they let me write down some journal entries and asked some so weird and confusing questions like do you know why we asked this question. Then I told them my thoughts and they just laughing and keep asking why do you think so? Really? Whatever I answered, the manager just had a strange expression and never gave back her feedback. During the entire process, I did not feel respected. At the end of the interview, the manager told me they need three weeks to make a decision. But I never heard back until now! This is a so terrible company!
