    Assistant Brand Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Los Angeles, CA (US)
    No Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Topshop (Los Angeles, CA (US)).

    Interview

    I applied three days after the position was posted. I received an immediate response from the coordinator a week later for a phone interview. They then scheduled an interview with the ABM the following week. The interview went great, however, the ABM doing the interview was a bit stand offish and talked mostly. She expressed I was a great candidate for the position and would notify within a week. I never received any notification of an offer or a decline to offer. I have an amazing resume and exceptional experience, yet the company did not feel necessary to update the interviewers about the outcome for weeks to come, even when calling for an update.

    Interview Questions

    • Having an ABM who lacks energy and exude intimidation hold the interview. In addition, they expressed there is very small room for growth with the company. I still love the brand, however, I believe the person conducting the interview was not the appropriate choice.   Answer Question

    Administrative Assistant Interview

    Declined Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Topshop (San Diego, CA (US)) in November 2015.

    Interview

    I saw the hiring ad for various Topshop position at Fashion Valley (San Diego) and decided to apply to the back of house position since I had more office, inventory, and cash handling type experience. About a week later I received an email inviting me to open recruitment day. There were three other people there during that time, it was pretty easy. Just an initial screening and basic questions about how many hours we wanted to work, what position we were interested in, current situation, etc. A few days later got an e-mail asking for a second interview. This time there was around 10 people, it was a very group oriented interview. The first part was just filling out a lot of employment type forms, most people were there for sales advisors. About half an hour later we started the interview. We had to get in pairs and introduce one another, then did a outfit build group activity where we got a scenario for a client and had to pick an outfit from rack and then present why we chose that outfit, and finally had to go around and use an adjective to describe the perfect Topshop employee and why. Overall it was a very easy-going interview and very relaxed. This was on a Monday and after not hearing back on Friday, I e-mailed asking for an update. The general manager informed me that HR had already tried contacting me and thanked me for letting her know. I was unaware of this, but apparently my voicemail wasn't set up right so I had been missing messages. Once I set it up I saw I had three missed voicemails from HR. After I realized this I called back on Monday and apologized, but was hopeful I had gotten the job since they were so interested in calling me. They took my information and said they'd talk to the general manager and call me back. Never got a call back, so I don't really know what happened. It was my fault for messing up, but I wished they would have just told me the position had been filled or some courteous excuse like that instead of making me think I still had a chance.

    They require very in depth answers. There’s two interviews that take place. The second interview is longer and is more focused on the position you’re applying for. They let you know if you’ve been rejected through email or HR will call to negotiate about your position.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Topshop (Aventura, FL (US)) in January 2018.

    Interview

    Group interview with about 8 other people. It was a mixture of people thar applied for various positions, but they called us all in for a hiring event to only hire two people for a shoe sales floor position. Complete waste of time. Nonetheless, interview was laid back. Everyone fed off of the others' energy. Simple questions.
