    Average Interview

    Application

    The process took 4 days. I interviewed at French Connection (Las Vegas, NV (US)) in September 2009.

    Interview

    I was already an employee of French Connection when I applied for this position. Since I had informed Management on my interest in managing, when an Assistant Manager position became available in one of the neighboring stores was asked if i wanted to interview with the Regional Manager and i was glad too. 3 days later when she was in town, I met up with her and the Store Manager and was pleasantly surprise on the great personality they both had, I never felt uncomfortable nor like i was being tested. They asked a lot of questions about my job history and some personal questions to get to know me. Right away, i was asked to approve a background check and if that returned clean they would be delighted to have me work with them. 3 days later i received a call from the Store Manager to tell me that i had passed the background check and wanted me to start right away.

    I never negotiated since I was already working for the company and my raise was going to be more than $4 per hour, I was happy. For future interviewers, Never be over confident, they like people that are down to earth and that are proud of what they do.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at French Connection (London, England) in October 2019.

    Interview

    Very informal at first with the manager of the role. Just asked to talk through my cv and then if I had any questions about the role. I was then introduced to the head of production and he asked some very strange rapid fire questions and somewhat invasive - such as are you dyslexic?

    Sales Assistant Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in London, England

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. I interviewed at French Connection (London, England).

    Interview

    I applied in person and they called me the day after to make an appointment for an interview. The interview itself was very quick, just some easy questions. They asked me to come on a Saturday afternoon for a 3 hours trial. When I arrived they didn't teach me anything and they just left me on the shopfloor. I did my best but I had the feeling that nobody was looking at me. At the end they said "thanks, we will let you know", but they never did. I think that the manager wasn't around that weekend and they needed a person to cover their breaks. Unprofessional.
