    Retail Sales Associate Interview

    Anonymous Employee in San Diego, CA (US)
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at Cotton On (San Diego, CA (US)) in November 2019.

    Interview

    It was a group interview at first, then they pull you one by one to get a better feel for you and to discuss the company expectations. Overall it was a decent interview, it does get hard to try to get a word in since the group may or may not be a large number of individuals. But as long as you exude an outgoing positive attitude the interviewer will most likely take note of you.

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Cotton On (Paramus, NJ (US)) in September 2019.

    Interview

    The process was lengthy. First the recruiter interviewed me. Than the regional visual. Than the 3rd interview was supposed to be the regional sales however he never called and missed the interview. (Right there I should have already knew what kind of company this is). Than they fly me to Miami (where I use my own funds for taxis which they say they would reimburse me ). The interview was 2 hours in which was 50% positive 50% trying to talk. up the company I had to follow up numerous times after interview. (Applicants should always have to follow up). I was never reimbursed for the taxis which recruiter stated In an email I would get back. This company lacks professionalism business management and following up. I wouldn’t interview with them again ever. All applicants don’t even bother. It’s a very negative company. All upper management lacks communication professionalism and respect. Don’t waste your time with this company. They will expect you to Do all the work. Not really care about work life balance. This company is a WASTE OF TIME.

    Sales Representative Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Paramus, NJ (US)
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at Cotton On (Paramus, NJ (US)) in June 2019.

    Interview

    It was casual and simple, the hiring manager was really sweet. It didn't feel like an interview, more like a conversation. She was young as well which was relatable. She seemed to just want to know a little bit about me to see if I fit the culture of the company. I would recommend just being yourself and fitting the company atmosphere.

    The process started off great- at end of interview I was told I would be moving on to interview with next step. I received a text from recruiter about salary requests then never heard back from recruiter. Wouldn't answer my calls, texts or emails.
