    I have been working at Swarovski part-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Amazing manager and team work. Very good training to arm you with strong sales techniques (transferable skill).

    Cons

    My concession got closed down even though it was highly profitable. Management decided to become more "up-market", which is a real shame. I don't think it was a good tactic, looks like it'll lose out more than it'll gain from this move as it makes most customers feel unapproachable and the price level is not high enough to compensate for less consumers.

    Application Details

    I applied in-person - interviewed at Swarovski.

    Interview Details

    Handed in an application form to a store, I wasn't invited to an interview; however I was put on in a "talent database" so other stores could see my application.
    I got invited to an interview in another store, where typical interview question were asked such as:
    what do you know about the company?
    Tell us about yourself?
    Name a time when you've had to deal with a difficult customer.

    There was also some senario questions where you had to suggest products for specific customer groups.
