  1. Hey everyone! I have a Coach group interview coming up in a few days for a part time position! anyone have any tips on how to do well and stand out while being appropriate at the same time! I mean what should I wear? What should I say? Anything else I need to know? Thanks!
     
  2. I don't have any tips for you, but I just wanted to wish you the best of luck!:tup:
     
  3. Me too!!
     
  4. Ooo exciting! I wish I lived close enough to a boutique to work at one part-time!
    Just be yourself, dress nicely and you'll do great I'm sure! Good luck!
     
  5. If you can, wear a white long-sleeved oxford button down shirt and black or grey pants or a black or grey skirt with black closed toed shoes. Be yourself! If you know a lot about coach to begin with, you won't have a problem getting hired. I work part-time in a boutique and really like it - but I do have to say that I am starting to buy too much! I do love the discounts, though! Good luck!
     
  6. Make sure you stand out in a group interview! Be friendly and smile and be extra polite. Also make sure you participate and show that you are outgoing. Good luck! You will do great!
     
  7. Yes - I agree with kabaker - definitely smile and show that you are outgoing - that will definitely help! Try not to be nervous - there were only 2 in my group interview - not all of the potential associates show up. Mine was very easy......
     
  8. good luck! :heart:
     
  9. thanks for the advice everyone! I really hope I get this job. Chimi, I just have a question! What are the part- time hours like anyways?
     
  10. Good luck! I hope you get the job. :tup:
     
  11. First of I would like to say good luck on your Group Interview. Is this for the Coach @ Square One? I live near there, I can't wait to go there and it's open 2 days b/f my birthday.

    Speaking as a manager (not for Coach, but I wish!), what I like to see from people who I am interviewing is good eye contact with the manager who is speaking to you,
    smile, and have a good attitude. It would also help to know about Coach. Check the website for any information that may help you with the interview. If you have questions, ask them. But I wouldn't ask about the pay and the discounts. I'd wait until they tell you about it.

    As for your attire, I would suggest a pair of dark coloured pants or a pencil skirt, a button down shirt and a pair of closed-toe heels.

    I don't know if this is of any help to you. Be yourself.

    Good luck!
     
  12. Tattersall, You can pretty much have the hours you need - but they expect you to be available during the times you put on your availability sheet. I sort of overcommitted myself when I first started - thinking I was 20 again! LOL! I don't know what I was thinking. I had to change my avail. sheet in January because I was just too worn out. I only work about 10 hours a week anymore - sometimes more and sometimes less. When you are learning things, though, it probably would be best to work at least 3 times per week if you can, though. That way it is much easier to remember everything. Just let me know if you have any more questions - I'll be happy to answer them.

    I haven't been on here in awhile - been really busy. Good luck!
     
  13. Good Luck! What a fabulous job prospect!
     
  14. You will have to ask the manager that question. Did you give them a set availability when you applied? Part-time can be considered 2-3 times a week for about 3-4 hours per shift. But definitely ask the manager.
     
  15. Another thing that Coach does - at least at my store and here in Texas is that they usually schedule you for 4 hour shifts or so....so keep that in mind.
