    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took a week. I interviewed at La Senza in March 2011.

    Interview

    I applied in-person and got an interview the next day. It went well and after the interview she had me do another interview (on the same day) with a different manager from a different location. Normally, the next interview is supposed to be with the district manager next but, she was on holiday. I was offered the job the following day, pending references of course. The type of questions they asked were behavioural type.

    Assistant Manager Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Winnipeg, MB (Canada)
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at La Senza (Winnipeg, MB (Canada)) in June 2009.

    Interview

    Dropping off a resume at a store location is the best way to get an interview. Applying on La Senza's website or through another online job site means that your resume may not be seen at store level for a few weeks. Always ask to speak to the manager. If she is not available make sure to ask when she will be in. Best time to come in is Monday morning. Make sure you know why you want to work there. She will ask you! Open availability is key. This means weekends as well! If your initial conversation goes well she will set up an interview. If you are applying for a management position a 2nd or 3rd interview may follow.
