    Interview

    I applied online through their website and was asked to go in for a very easy, very short interview with an assistant manager, where I was offered the job. To be fair, they were really needing people at the time.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Soma Intimates (Macon, GA) in October 2016.

    Interview

    It was a great interview process. The hiring manager was very informative & forthcoming. Once you finish talking with the manager & getting to know each other you will move on to a "mock sale". You take about 15 minutes walk around & pick out some thing you like then you are going to pretend the hiring manager is a customer & sale the lovely things you have picked out. (if you haven't had any sales experience they are really understanding& will work with you) I work with great group of women. Our team is very diverse & supportive. It was an easy process I got a call within two weeks with a yes of course & I gladly accepted.

    Part-Time Sales Associate Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Woodbridge, VA

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at Soma Intimates (Woodbridge, VA) in September 2016.

    Interview

    They gave me a scenario that a customer was going to the Bahamas for her one year anniversary and I needed to pick out items for the customer to take with her on her vacation. After that, the store manager took me to the back and asked me general questions about past experiences with customers. But since this would be my first job she had to tweak them a bit. It was an easy interview overall. The only issue I had was that you have to meet a sales quota and she said that store wasn't very busy so it makes it hard to do that. And I also did not like that she said the girls that work there usually only work 4 hour shifts. The salary is basically minimum wage and you get a bonus if you meet your sales quotas but I found the situation to be a bit too stressful for me and it would be hard to make money if you're only working 4 hours a day for a few days per week. She offered me the job on the spot but I had another interview elsewhere and told her I would need a few days to think about it.

    Reasons for Declining

    I wasn't happy with the salary and she told me the store only gets about 10 or so customers per day so it makes it hard to meet the sales quotas.

    I applied online. I interviewed at Soma Intimates (The Woodlands, TX) in August 2016.

    Interview

    Was one on one and is was simple. I was interview by one of the key managers. This store is high volume most of the year so we stay busy. I went into the store an ask about the positions that were available and the store manager gave me a card to put my information on. The next day she sent me an invitation to take a test and fill out the application.

    I applied online. I interviewed at Soma Intimates (Houston, TX) in August 2016.

    Interview

    Short and unprofessional. The manager complained the whole time and barely asked any questions. I tried to show my best side but ended up saying next to nothing. It took almost two hours.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 6+ weeks. I interviewed at Soma Intimates in June 2016.

    Interview

    The interview with the new manager was pleasant. She was very excited about her new role, but we began talking about how her goal was to restructure the team because right now, it was a "mess". I immediately thought drama and was concerned. She discussed her plans of the restructure and it struck me as if there was probably going to be a ton of micromanaging going on. After giving it a lot of thought, decided I did not want to be part of a rebuild when I didn't even know what was there before.

    Interview

    Same as anywhere. No trick questions. Just why do you want to work here, what is your experience. I met my new manager at a local coffee shop. The store had not opened yet so it was fun to set it up as well. If you have retail experience it should be no problem to get a job at Soma.

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Soma Intimates in January 2016.

    Interview

    It was a very laid back interview. The lady just asked me to tell her about myself. It was more of a conversation. She asked my availability. But we never talked pay. The lady said I would hear from her by the end of the day but I didn't. She called me back almost a week later with an offer. I would have accepted but once I asked her about the pay, I declined.
