    Application

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at Lacoste.

    Interview

    Interviewing process was very quick - after I applied, I heard back the next day. Someone from HR called for a phone screening, then I was brought in for an in-person interview, which was very brief. The interviewer briefly described the position, asked me to tell her about myself, why Lacoste, and if I had questions. I was probably there for 5 minutes, max (and not in a good way).

    Assistant Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Atlanta, GA
    Declined Offer

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at Lacoste (Atlanta, GA).

    Interview

    Submitted my resume via a Craigslist ad response. Received an e-mail 2-3 days later about setting up a phone interview. This was short, and actually was less of an interview besides 1-2 questions and more of setting up a time to come and interview in person. The in person interview was 2 days later. While waiting for the hiring manager, a French businessman came in (Lacoste originated in France) and did not speak much English. The employee struggled to tell him a price, and I used a tad bit of French (basic from college course) to tell him the price of the sweater. The employee seemed to have an attitude about me helping but the hiring manager came out a few moments later and we went to the back. She asked me about previous work experience as well as life and career goals. She didn't speak much about the actual assistant manager position other than telling me about the employee discount and wardrobe allowance. I think she may have already had it in her head to hire me. She called a day later but I had already accepted another position a few hours before. Overall I think the company is nice!

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 8+ weeks. I interviewed at Lacoste (Commerce, CA) in September 2014.

    Interview

    The hiring process was way too long. From start to finish it took well over two months. You have about 5 interviews and you'll be asked all the standard questions. They care about team development and customer service but most importantly results. You better have result in a high volume setting. I met a few good people along the way. I first interviewed with a very nice store manager from Ontario Mills and a very cool area manager. Last , I interviewed with the DM. She was very interesting. She was new to the company and didn't have much information regarding the process. She just sat there and listened and ask me If I would be open to taking the assistant manager position...WTF really. What and insult. I have worked very hard to get were I am. I have a degree and ten plus year of retail manager experience and you just discount everything and offer me an ASM position. I felt like telling her where to go. Needless to say, I declined the offer. The lesson I learned was there really are those DMs that will try anything to get top talent for cheap. Make sure you accept what your worth. Overall, Thank you Ken and briana you two are amazing. I'm sorry It didn't work out.

    They insulted my experience so they could get me for cheap. I know what I offer and what I bring to the table so be fair.

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Lacoste (New York, NY).

    Interview

    Got contacted by HR for a phone interview. Goes over resume and why you are applying for the position. I guess he liked me enough to schedule me right away for an on-site interview. Basic questions there as well. Why do you want to be in retail? What are your strengths and weaknesses etc.
