    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at Sabon (New York, NY) in March 2017.

    Interview

    I sent an application to their HR and received a response the next day. Soon after, I was scheduled for an interview in their plush Soho office. I arrived early, and the HR head had me wait in the conference room. About 10 minutes after we were scheduled to start, she entered. She was mostly pleasant, and the interview was conversational. After a few minutes, she informed me that she would move me along to the next step, which was to attend a product and ingredient training. I was given the details swiftly over email.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Sabon (New York, NY).

    Interview

    If you are desperate they take you, only apply to this job if no one else on the planet will hire you. HR emails you, and they hire anyone and everyone because they are always understaffed since they treat their employees like garbage. Anyways, after emailing you, you go to an interview with HR and then you go to a product and ingredient training which FYI if you fail you still get hired, that just shows how pathetic and desperate they are.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Sabon (Chicago, IL) in July 2017.

    Interview

    A few weeks after emailing my resume and cover letter, the manager called to set up an interview. It lasted about 15 minutes. He asked basic questions about my experience (I had no retail experience, just restaurant), why I wanted to work there and then I had to roleplay selling him a pen which was a little nerve racking but fine.
