    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Burberry in March 2017.

    Interview

    Received an internet invite to schedule a phone interview 2 weeks after applying. Interviewer called me 15 minutes late. She was very dry and unenthusiastic. Didn't feel like I wanted to work with her after such a brief conversation. I did well for the most part but knew from her tone that I didn't impress her. She said she would contact me within the week. Sent a follow up the next week and still no answer.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Burberry in September 2016.

    Interview

    I applied online and was contacted by the general manager one week later. We scheduled an in-person interview date. On that day, I met with both the GM and then with the assistant manager. The interview lasted a little over 1 hour. Afterwards, I was told that I would receive a call within a week if Burberry decided to move on with the hiring process. I received a call 5 days later. The manager said the regional manager wanted to schedule a phone interview with me. I had the phone interview two days later and it lasted for approximately 30 minutes. This interview was shorter but more in-depth. The regional manager seemed very curious about my clientele experience and what it meant to me. The day after the phone interview, I was called again by the GM and was offered the job.

    Interview

    After the initial application you are asked to answer a few questions on video. Father which you go to the assessment centre. Should you complete this you then attend another interview with the store manager. The process is long and slow.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Burberry (Austin, TX (US)) in September 2016.

    Interview

    I submitted my resume online and three days later I received a phone call to schedule an interview. The initial face to face interview took about an hour and a half. Followed by a 30 minute phone interview a week later. Many of the questions were based off of your own personal and work experiences and how you handled specific situations. Other questions involved hypothetical situations, availability, and company knowledge. It was important for them to know I had training with client care and excellent communication skills, verbal and written. It was certainly lengthy but necessary.

    I applied online. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at Burberry (Boston, MA (US)) in August 2016.

    Interview

    Be careful! Burberry leaks your information to your current employer. So crappy. Super low efficiency through the whole process. Maybe too busy leaking interviewees' personal information.
    Thank god I rejected the offer and my current employer offered me higher salary.
    Thanks to Glassdoor.com, knowing that Burberry's wage is so low.

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at Burberry.

    Interview

    I first spoke with a recruiter who told me a little about the role and Company overall. She did explain that it was an intense work environment, which I am used to. Asked many questions to get to know me and my experience. She then connected me with the District Manager who I met - asked me a series of questions from an Interview Guide. Great energy - he was very charismatic. Last I met with the SVP of retail ... he solidified my desire to join the brand. He was intelligent, articulate and had a great vision for the Brand and where he wanted to take it.
