    Junior Brand Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in San Francisco, CA (US)
    No Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Decathlon (San Francisco, CA (US)) in July 2017.

    Interview

    Ok , so here's the thing I applied for a brand new made up position that doesn't exist in any of the Decathlon branches. This position was being filled in San Francisco for their brand new location opening up in America. I applied online was contacted Via Email, set up a phone interview with another fellow, went downtown SF to meet them at a We Work location to do an in person interview. Talked with them for over 2 hours. And then at the end was asked about compensation. After going through the process and being told about what I would need to be doing and given the title of the position and how much I felt like I should be paid I politely told them. I could write down how much I asked for on this review but I won't . Two days later I got a denial. I was shocked. All I could guess was I asked for to much but I really didn't! I came in asking for a value $5k below San Francisco average . Two weeks later I was on LinkedIn and saw they changed the title of the position to Retail Sales Manager . I just laughed because it was clear they had put the wrong title in the wrong city. A Junior Brand Manager is a very different position than a retail sales manager and I'm assuming they realized that after interviewing more candidates who asked for normal San Francisco salaries .

    I really wanted to work for this company I really did I was super excited but I am not convinced I was unqualified . I am almost certain I was denied because of salary which is still a shame because I would of negotiated .

    I really wish them the best of luck in San Francisco , but I wanted to give my experience so possible candidates can further prepare themselves.

    Executive Assistant Store Manager Interview

    Declined Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at Decathlon (San Francisco, CA (US)).

    Interview

    The Interview Process was basic. I went through two interviews one over the phone and the second with the store manager(s). The phone interview was just an explanation about the company and duties of the job. The in person interview was a little more challanging. If you didn't do simple research you would be filtered out. The store manager asked me simple what would you do scenario questions.

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at Decathlon (London, England (UK)) in March 2018.

    Interview

    Consultant potryed the position being urgent and good for me with the desired qualification and experience.

    Flew to Delhi from Lucknow on my own with hiked priced tickets, as was told that the position was urgent and interview was with a bunch of people and shall be once in for all.

    Pathetic experience during interview as it was just a single person taking the interview and that too was pretty junior to me.

    Wasnt able to test my techincal knowledge as kept it inclined towards my details in CV and later to strengths and weeknesses, who the hell does that to a 8+ years of experience holder in Indian professional context.

    Full waste of time & money it was for me!!!
