Vans Interview Process
I applied at Vans for the post of Sales Associate through an online application. The process took one week and I was interviewed at Vans. There was just one on one interview in the hiring process making it the shortest hiring process I have ever gone through in my career.
Round 1 - Face to Face Interview
I had applied online for the job but I never received any response from their side. Therefore, I decided to call them up myself. On receiving my call, the girl at the other end took my name and number and told me that they will get back to me. After two more days, I received a call from the manager who asked me to come the next day for a face to face interview. The interview began with very basic questions and all the questions that followed were the expected ones making the interview extremely easy for me. Some of the questions that were asked from me:
Q1. Tell something about yourself.
Q2. Why did you decide to work at Vans?
Q3. If you get a chance to go on a dinner with anybody, who would it be and why? It can be a living or dead person.
Q4. Differentiate between giving good customer service and the term selling.
Q5. Let us pretend that I'm a customer. You have an outfit at the store. Try to sell it to me.
If you read the questions, they are really basic and easy. Also, the interviewer was really nice and cool.
How to crack (get into) Vans Interview
One thing is for sure. If you are applying through an online application, then you need to make an effort by calling them back or dropping by at their office. They receive so many applications, and to stand out of the crowd, you need to be a little different from the others and approach them yourself after a few days.
The next thing about Vans is that the company is really cool and the staff is pretty awesome. My interviewer was a cool and easy going person and so was the other staff. You can estimate how easy it will be to spend your time in the company after experiencing the interview. Thus you have no reason to be afraid or feel any pressure on you. This will automatically enhance your confidence level which will be really helpful in cracking the Vans interview.
Next, the interview process at Vans is really really short and pretty easy. If you just go through the questions that I have mentioned above, you will believe what I'm saying right now. Also, after giving my interview, I was called on the very next day informing me that they would like me to join them the following week. So, they won't keep you waiting and will inform you right away about the hiring.
Overall, I found the Vans interview pretty easy to crack. All you need is a bit of confidence and some good answers to the basic questions they will ask you. You can wear Vans clothing for the interview to showcase your enthusiasm towards the brand. All the best for your interview.
