    Interview

    There was an extremely large pool of applicants, and I knowing someone who worked at the company helped get my resume to the top of the pile. I heard back a couple weeks later and went in for an interview. It was very standard and straight forward. If you speak clearly and positively, you'll do well. In addition to this, dressing well for the interview and knowing current trends is very important.

    Interview

    Apply online at hm.careers . com then they'll call you for a brief over the phone interview about availability and why h&m. Technically, that would be interview 1. Interview 2 is a more personal interview with the HR, and they ask you similar and more in depth questions. Then a third interview is a job offer.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at H&M in February 2017.

    Interview

    First I had a phone screening with one of the district managers which was about 10 minutes. Just simple questions about work history, availability and why you wanna work at h&m. After that she scheduled an in person interview immedialty and I was scheduled for it in 5 days. The second interview was with the other department manager and she basically asked the same questions but wanted more detail and wanted to learn more about my work history. I then filled out a background check paper and the first department manager called me to schedule a second in person meeting. She asked me about my availability and offered me the job that same day. We then went over wages and paperwork.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at H&M in February 2017.

    Interview

    Technically 3 interviews. The first one is a 15 minute phone call. I've had about three different ones for different locations so I pretty much caught on: the first one was awkward and I guess it depends who you speak with and what their vibe is like. Asked questions like why you wanted to work there availability and pay...then offered me an interview. The second phone call I had for another location was much harder to be honest. She asked me if there is anything I would change at H&m and what would it be. The third one from the other location was a lot more relaxing and fun. It all depends who interviews you. Same questions.

    Then there's the face to face. I didn't go to the first two locations but went to the last location and it was fun. It was one on one and really relaxing. Filled out background information and five days later got a call for a third interview a couple days later.

    The third interview really isn't a interview more like a you got the job and filling out paper work.
