    Associate Account Executive Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in New York, NY
    No Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at The Jones Group (New York, NY).

    Interview

    It was for the Kasper Group. Phone interview with HR manager, then in person interview with the hiring manager. The interview went well and was invited to interview with his peer which also went great. I never heard back from them since then. I reached out to the HR manager but she left the company a week after my interview. So no one followed-up with me despite countless emails to the 2 hiring managers and other HR managers. Very unprofessional for a well-known company. A courtesy email would have suffice.

    I applied through other source. I interviewed at The Jones Group.

    Interview

    After a phone conversation was asked to come in for an interview by the head of technical design. As we knew each other before from being in the same building it was basically routine. I was taken on a tour of the floor, introduced to several employees and shown where I would sit.

    Sample Coordinator Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at The Jones Group.

    Interview

    I met with who would be my current boss and the vp of e-commerce. They had both been there 10+ years. Very friendly and easy to talk to. The vp had just come back from living in Rome for the past 5 years so I tried to connect with her on that. It's really important to try and connect on things you have in common with your interviewers. Definitely makes me feel more comfortable when on any interview. Since it was my first interview for a job in the fashion industry I was unsure of what to wear, but ended up going with a black suit and colorful shirt. Also, they asked me a lot of questions about the brand's website and things that I thought could be improved on, so I was really glad I studied up!

    Interview Questions

    • I find that the really difficult are the ones that everyone asks like "where do you see yourself in 5 years" or "what do you hunk are your weakest qualities"   Answer Question

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at The Jones Group.

    Interview

    Took too much time. Met with lots of people on the day of the interview and took a lot of time away from my current job. Next time I would plan to take a whole day off in order to complete the interview.

    Interview

    Pretty Simple. You meet with HR and right away with division head who seeks employee. Probably no more than 2 interviews before finding out if position is yours. If hired must complete a drug test.

    Interview Questions

    Negotiation

    No negotiation. Tried for extra week of vacation but company did not agree.

    No need to negotiate. I received what I asked for understanding I would be the part time associate which required less on my part in regarding the total operation of the store. It felt great to have someone understand my abilities and offer me what I asked for without hesitation!
