    Graphic Designer Interview

    Neutral Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Saks Fifth Avenue.

    Interview

    1. Phone Interview with HR
    2. In person interview with a Design manager
    3. Design assignment
    4. In person interview with the creative team to discuss assignment

    The process was long and over all it took around 3 weeks to hear the result. The creative team didn't seem to care so much about your background or personality. They were mainly focusing on your design and presentation skills.
