    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at H&M.

    Interview

    Applied online and got a call a few hours later asking to chat over the phone. Went through a 10-15 minute phone screening where they asked me about my availability and my resume then got invited to an in-person interview the next day. At the in-person interview I met 2 managers and they asked me pretty basic retail questions. The managers were really chill and made me feel super comfortable. After they interviewed me, they left the room to deliberate for a few minutes and came back to offer me the job and have me fill out paperwork.

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at H&M (Ottawa, ON (Canada)) in July 2016.

    Interview

    Applied for new store opening, had phone interview, went in for group interview, and again for activities where a team surveys your performance. The activities hosted are for example building a lego castle and towers with specific limitations in a team of 6, while constantly passing around a tennis ball like hot potato. The overall process was tideous, but it is to be expected when hiring for a grand opening.
