    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at kate spade.

    Interview

    I applied online and a few days later was called to set up an in-person interview. They asked me a few questions on the phone before we set up the interview. I went in and interviewed with the store manager. After the first interview I had a second interview with a store manager of another store over the phone. After the second interview I had a final interview, again over the phone, with the district manager for the store I'd be working for. Then I was called a few days later and offered the position. The whole process took about 2.5 weeks and each conversation lasted about an hour or more.

    Interview

    The Pr manager seemed very impatient, like she had better things to do. The hr coordinator was very friendly and we had a great conversation. I never received a call which is very unprofessional for a company of their stature. The experience could have been better.

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at kate spade (Orlando, FL) in June 2017.

    Interview

    I applied online and was called by the store manager a few days later where I did a short phone interview and then was asked to come in for an in person interview. It was a 1:1 interview in the back room where I was asked basic retail questions such as why I wanted to work there, why I liked the company, customer scenarios, etc. The interview was very relaxed and lasted around a total of 30 minutes. Make sure you have your references up to date and let them know that they'll most likely be contacted.

    Exactly one week after my interview, I was called back and offered a position.

    Assistant Store Leader Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in New York, NY
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at kate spade (New York, NY) in June 2017.

    Interview

    The interview was standard and nothing out of the ordinary. I had a second interview and was told I'd be contacted by the district manager. After a couple of weeks I heard nothing and reached out via email to inquire about the status of the position and got no response. This lack of follow up with a candidate that took the time to interview twice is completely unprofessional and I would've expected better communication. I have several years of management experience. I've conducted a lot of interviews and would never lead someone to believe there'd be follow up, fail to contact them and not respond to their email inquiry.

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at kate spade in April 2017.

    Interview

    The interview was fairly easy. It was a group interview. There were four of us. The Store Leader interviewed us. She was hiring thirty new sales associates for a new Kate Spade Outlet that was opening in a few weeks ahead. She asked just a few questions for example, do you have retail experience? How would you provide good customer service? What does the brand mean to you and what makes you want to work here?

    Difficult day and works, but this job can provide you a great customer service experience, and also that can improve your patience, reliability and responsibility. I like this sale job, even not make too many money, but it is still a good job. I hope some day I can improved.
