Model/Sales Associate Interview

Model/Sales Associate
Toronto, ON

I applied through a recruiter and the process took 1+ week - interviewed at Abercrombie & Fitch.

Interview Details Simple
Was recruited as I was leaving the store by the store manager who gave me the company card and told me to signup via the career website with the password to enter the site and then arrange for an interview time.
You can choose what time is best suited for you. Was interviewed in a 8-12 person group and then waited a week before receiving the position.

Interview Question – 1. Tell me about a time when you did something positive without direction from someone with a higher position
2. What does diversity mean to you?
3. What do you enjoy doing in your free time

Interview Details Ask a question about diversity, ask a question about something that was worked hard for to achieve.ask a question about overcoming a situation where there was trouble and how you overcame it. Group interview with very good looking people that are not always all that bright. If you have a good head on your shoulders u will do just fine.

Very Easy Interview

Sales Associate (Model) Interview

Sales Associate (Model)
Toronto, ON

I applied in-person and the process took 2 days - interviewed at Abercrombie & Fitch in December 2011.

Interview Details The interview process was pretty straightforward, if they approached you in store about being a model, then you're pretty much guaranteed the position as long as you don't come off as completely incompetent during the interview. The manager takes a group to a quiet part of the mall and asks question like "what does diversity mean to you?" and "why would you be a good fit at our store?".

Interview Question – "What does diversity mean to you?"   View Answer

Negotiation Details – There's no negotiation process. At a place like Abercrombie and Fitch where they hire at least one new employee every week and already has over 100 models in the system, they really don't give you a chance to negotiate.

Sales Associate (Model)
Rolling Hills Estates, CA (US)

The process took 2 days - interviewed at Abercrombie & Fitch.

Interview Details I called the store in my area to see if they were hiring. They provided me with a code and a website to grant me access into the system. I filled out the relatively generic application (asks about education, past work experience, etc.), and came in for an interview the following week. It is a group interview and the manager writes things down as you say them. They are mostly looking for positive and energetic responses rather than what you actually say.
