    I interviewed in-person. The process took 3 days - interviewed at Guess? in August 2014.

    Interview Details

    Have my application to them on a Saturday, called me the following day for an interview that coming Tuesday. Interview lasted literally 2 minutes since the manager was in a hurry to find more employees. Asked me about my work experience and told me about expectations and what she needed. Asked me if I could do it and I said yes and she basically hired me on the spot. Background check took a day. Called me on Thursday to fill out paperwork and get started on training.

    Retail Sales Associate Interview

    Application Details

    I interviewed in-person. The process took a day - interviewed at Guess? in June 2010.

    Interview Details

    Hiring was conducted in a group of about ten people with one of the managers. A few general questions were asked for the entire group to answer at leisure (Questions like- how many different Guess stores are there? What are the latest fashions? Who is the CEO?). Knowing the answers to those questions gets you serious points in the interview. Then, everyone goes down in a row answering the exact same questions (why are you qualified for this job? what are your sales tactics? how will you succeed? why should we chose you out of this group?). Tips that I think help me get the job- I stayed after the group left to get a few words alone with the manager. I told her how important this job was to me, and I thanked her for the opportunity. Overall, do your research of the company before getting there if you want to be hired!!

    Interview Questions
    • Who is the CEO? How much money does Guess make on average every year?   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    I was not able to negotiate. I hardly understood what the manager was telling me- she was chewing gum and brought me to the area of the store where the music was blasting the loudest. I accepted the job without even knowing how much the salary would be, just because I was desperate at the time for employment. A word of advice- Guess stores are always very loud. Before beginning the negotiation process, ask to step outside, or be taken to the very back.
