    Application

    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?
