    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Levi Strauss (Los Angeles, CA) in October 2017.

    Interview

    Got a call from the store manager wanting to set up an interview and he told me to come in wearing my best Levi's attire. Came in and it ended up being a group interview. Basically we went in to the back and we sat down and the interviewee went around and asked us to introduce ourselves and say something interesting about us, then he just asked us some generic interview questions and told us more about the company and what we'd be doing. It was a very relaxed setting and was really chill.

    UI Developer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Declined Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at Levi Strauss in August 2017.

    Interview

    My interview process was pretty simple and involved a lot of communication with the recruiter. You will also be required to sign a document saying you won't accept interviews or offers for 10 days while you are in the process.

    1. Phone call with recruiter discussing more in depth my experience.
    2. Email sending resume and asking me to transcribe my experience.
    3. Group call with recruiter and head boss recruiter going over the role and why I would be a good fit.
    4. Another phone call and numerous emails back and forth with recruiter
    5. Group video call technical interview. This was about a 45 minute conversation asking me questions about the technologies on the application. It was very fair.
    6. A final interview with the hiring manager was supposed to take place, but was replaced with the recruiter last minute saying they were willing to hire me just for less money.

    That was the process. I will say that on day one of talking with the recruiter I stipulated what my rate would be and before we began the entire process made sure it was within their range or for us not to proceed. After they talked to the powers to be it was agreed this was fine. It would be after a 3 week process on step 6 they would offer me less than what I stated on day 1. It was not a substantial amount less, but was more of a principal reason I was upset by this.

    Product Development Interview

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Interview

    I felt the process in scheduling the interview was organized and very detailed. The room I had the interview in was very comfortable with a couch, tv, etc. I was quite impressed. Where it got very unprofessional was the follow up. I e-mailed my recruiter multiple times asking for the status and I never got one reply. As of today, I still haven't received any e-mails saying they decided to choose a different candidate and I interviewed with them 2 month ago. This is too bad as this recruiter represents Levi Strauss, so she makes this company look unprofessional. I have been in the industry for many years and rest assured I have told people within the industry my negative experience.

    • The issue weren't the questions, but the recruiter and her follow up skills.   1 Answer

    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Levi Strauss (Castle Rock, CO) in July 2017.

    Interview

    I walked in, saw this tall guy standing there, he was the first person I saw. I told him that I had applied and that there was an interview scheduled at four. Was pretty early. So he told me that the office was busy and to wander around the store or something, because he'd find me when he was ready. So I did. They were having a huge sale. I made a mental note of where the things were and such. From what I saw, everyone was very relaxed and staff was really helpful. Made a mental note of what they were doing and what they were wearing, wondered if it was Levi's. So then we went in the office in the back to interview. It was interesting. Then he asked me to go out and choose an outfit for him or myself, then basically sell it to him. I was sooo nervous, but that part helped me get my thoughts together.
