    Sales Associate Interview

    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 days. I interviewed at Steven Madden (Chicago, IL) in May 2013.

    Interview

    One of the worst I've seen. It took me two days to get back in touch with the manager who called me. We set a date and time. I showed, but she didn't. She forgot, but she was on her way. After sitting in the store for a half hour, the assistant manager said she would interview me. After being asked 4 pre-written questions, she said "thanks, I'll give these to the manager and she'll interview you. "

    I didn't hear back from anyone for about a week. I had to reach out to the store. The manager, who never interviewed me, said they found someone more qualified. Now how is that possible when you didn't even see me? I really wanted to work for them, now I have no desire to even go near the company's product.

    Manager Interview

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at Steven Madden (Long Island City, NY) in July 2017.

    Interview

    To level set, I have researched reviews on (GlassDoor, Indeed). Like review sites, one has to take a grain of salt to see through things; there are so many negative ones - generally disgruntled employees venting though what keeps happy employees from posting I wonder.

    Anyway, the interview process for this LIC/HQ position was thus - recruiter to HR contact to interview(s). The theme I gathered from what they look for in a candidate is "fit" for their office culture in addition to one's background and skill set.

    Pros
    Location - LIC, near subway and LIRR lines (can't speak for buses)
    Friendly atmosphere

    Cons
    Parking situation - free valet parking available - just tip the attendant at least!
    Separate buildings - so might need to figure out which one you need to go

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at Steven Madden (Long Island City, NY) in April 2015.

    Interview

    Initially met with HR, had an in-person interview with one of the HR women. She took my resume and asked basic questions about past experience and "why Steve Madden?" and what did I see myself doing in 5 years, etc. She then explained the position to me and said that she would forward my resume to the hiring manager. A few days later, I met with the supervisor of the department that I was interviewing for and basically went through the same exact spiel.

    Super casual, but very straight forward. They really know who they're looking for, so if they ask a lot of questions about your background, it usually means they're very interested.
