    Interview

    The interviewer just asked about my cover letter and resume, the process was just reviewing my cover letter and specifying the needs that were highlighted in order to qualify for the internship. I was very nervous, however the interviewer was very nice and understanding. She knew that this was my first time experience and took things to thought.

    Special Events Assistant Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Max Mara Fashion Group (New York, NY).

    Interview

    The interview process at Max Mara's corporate office was very off putting. It felt like they were just streaming people through trying to get it over with as soon as possible. In addition to my interview being short, the individual ahead of me also had about a 15-20 minute interview. The content of the interview itself was unique in that they only asked one question that pertained to the position, while the rest seemed like a quiz on the brand. It was a moment where I actually was overqualified for the role and had experience with each bullet point on the job description, but we never really even touched on any of that which was unfortunate. It seemed like they were less interested in finding a qualified candidate and more interested in finding an expert on the brand and its history.

    It's important for people conducting interviews to remember that they're in many ways being interviewed as well and representing the company as a whole. I found the interviewer to be quite cold and unfriendly. She seemed more like she was walking into a root canal than trying to find a perfect candidate for a great company. That makes it seem like maybe the company as a whole is not an enjoyable place to work, which based on other reviews doesn't seem to be the case, but is what she was conveying. Additionally, she came across as unprofessional, which is startling for someone who holds an HR position at a director level. I have yet to attend an interview where I wasn't warmly welcomed and offered a water or beverage, and experienced nothing of that sort, while she sipped on a soft drink. On its own not a huge deal, but in conjunction with everything else really added to the unprofessional, unwelcoming vibe.
