Mens Visual Stylist Interview

Mens Visual Stylist

I applied online - interviewed at Bloomingdale's in July 2014.

Interview Details I was contacted after filing out online application to make an appointment online. It allows you to choose an upcoming time slot to come in for interview. I made an appointment for the following week. Arriving early is good (to calm yourself & collect your thoughts).

I was met by two recruiters who asked a few questions. Then they informed me that, if invited back, that I would only get show my portfolio in the next stage (they were NOT the Bloomingdales managers I needed to see).

The next day I was asked by that recruiter to email him some of my portfolio, which I did. He did confrim receipt and that he'd pass it along.

 I am still awaiting word.

Interview Question – "Tell us about a time when you had a disagreement with your coworker?'   Answer Question

Luxury Linens Sales Associate Interview

Luxury Linens Sales Associate
New York, NY (US)

I applied in-person - interviewed at Bloomingdale's in June 2014.

Interview Details It's a group panel process. Bunch of people were sitting in a cold room with two HR people. One is responsible for asking related questions and the other one sends out the background check chart. After the group panel, the HR person asked people come to her office one by one according to your information.

Interview Question – Maybe perhaps I didn't have related sales experiences, so it's kind of hard to talk about how to deal with your directors and your coworkers.   Answer Question

Reason for Declining – It doesn't fit my schedule.

Visual Merchandiser Interview

Visual Merchandiser

I applied online and the process took a day - interviewed at Bloomingdale's.

Interview Details Bloomingdale's conducts group interviews for the first round of interviews for this position, which I was unaware of until I arrived. The difficult thing about that is that you are all asked the same question, so if you are answering second or third it becomes a challenge to be unique in your answer. They ask some informal questions like, "Where do you get your fashion inspiration" and "Walk me through dressing a mannequin--is it male or female? What is its name? What is it wearing? Where is it going?" As well as more formal ones like "What did your employer say about you in your last performance review?"

Interview Question – "What do you expect from a company?"   View Answer
