    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Burberry.

    Interview

    Because I could not make it into the office, I was able to have my interview via Skype. It lasted about 30 minutes, with basic questions about past experiences, how I handle stressful situations, etc. Prior to the questions and answers, I was given an extensive overview of the position and company overall. The interview was both informative and helpful.

    A paid internship is hard to come by. I did not negotiate - the pay is standard for all interns.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Burberry in May 2014.

    Interview

    My interviewer contacted me over the phone and asked a couple quick questions, mainly a resume rundown. He then asked if I could come in for an interview in their office. The interview was pretty strait forward, mainly behavioral based. My interviewer asked for my Microsoft office proficiency. Not a very difficult process by any means.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Burberry (Tulalip, WA (US)) in September 2013.

    Interview

    After a lengthy telephone interview, I met with two managers with the Seattle Premium Outlets Burberry store. Their personalities were complimentary but did not fit the "typical" overeager, hyper salesperson for a high end store. They impressed me with the package offered!!! After being out of retail for several years, I was amazed. The store itself was nicely packaged and the sales associates were friendly.

    Average Interview

    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.

    Assistant General Manager Interview

    Negative Experience

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Burberry.

    Interview

    I applied online, and shortly afterwards received a phone call to set up an interview on a Monday at 2 PM. I arrived at the store and was greeted by an associate who went to tell the manager I had arrived. The associate returned and told me the manager was on the phone, and I should wait on the customer bench. I waited there for another 10 minutes. Another employee came up and introduced herself as the floor supervisor. She gave me a paper application, clipboard and pen and told me to sit on the bench and complete the application. I did so, then proceeded to wait as she and other associates walked past me, focusing on tasks like filling the floor. The associates did not seem happy and were not engaging with customers at all. When it reached 2:30, a full half hour after my interview time, I got up to leave. The first associate asked if I was all set and I told her "Please tell the GM the interview was for 2:00. If she respect me as an applicant, I don't expect she would respect me as an employee. I then left the store.
