Christian Dior Interview Questions

  1. 1.

    At Dior, we like to keep our employees motivated on the job. What causes you to feel dissatisfied in your job?

      Everyone will have their particular triggers that cause them to feel dissatisfaction on the job. Talk to the interviewer about any factors that may deflate or discourage you in the workplace. Help the interviewer at Dior to understand how they can motivate you!

      Rachelle's Answer #1

      "I can feel dissatisfaction on the job when I am not feeling heard or when there is not mutual respect among the team members. I work best in more harmonious situations where there is little drama or gossip."

      Rachelle's Answer #2

      "I do not like to dwell on the negative so I would much prefer to discuss what makes me feel most motivated on the job! I am very motivated by surroundings where I feel listened to, valued, and respected. A positive mindset and environment are important to me."

  2. 2.

    Collaboration is important to us at Christian Dior. How do you motivate your fellow team members?

      You don't have to be a manager or a team leader to motivate others. Offering a listening ear or providing words of encouragement can make a world of difference to your coworkers. Sometimes, just being a positive influence and showing up consistently can also make a difference.

      If you have worked in a leadership role, think of ways you helped set clear goals or helped individuals cultivate a new skill. Reflect on your experience and share some ways that you have helped encourage others to keep up the good work!

      Rachelle's Answer #1

      "I motivate my fellow team members by coming to work with an exceptional attitude every day. I won't allow anyone's bad mood to let me down. That influence alone has helped many of my coworkers get through their day on a more positive note."

      Rachelle's Answer #2

      "I believe that I motivate solely through my actions and my positive disposition. I try always to have a smile on my face and be ready for the next challenge. It's a contagious disposition!"

  3. 3.

    Are you applying for any other jobs?

      It always puts a little bit of fire under the hiring manager if they are aware that you are actively looking for a new position. Tell the interviewer about your search so far. Be honest and give a legitimate timeline on when you expect to be accepting an offer.

      Rachelle's Answer #1

      "I am keeping an eye out for viable positions. Although I am not in final stages with any other company, I am actively seeking a new position."

      Rachelle's Answer #2

      "I am passively seeking a new opportunity which means that I am very particular about where I apply. At this point, I have interviewed with a couple of companies; however, they were not the right roles for me. I am very excited to learn more about this position with Dior."

  4. 4.

    At Christian Dior we pride ourselves in our high end products. Walk me through your experience in selling high end products.

      Christian Dior products are in the multi-thousand dollar price tag arena. Assure the interviewer that you are able, and comfortable, in selling products with a more significant price tag. Use examples from your work history and talk about a massive sale or large sales target from the past.

      Rachelle's Answer #1

      "I started my career in luxury sales with company ABC and, after spending two years there, I moved on to company XYZ which was an even higher price tag. With ABC, my average sale was $2500, and with XYZ, it was $6500. I am accustomed to sales quotas of $1M plus and would have no issue asking for the sale when it comes to a $10,000 luxury handbag or fine couture item."

      Rachelle's Answer #2

      "I have a total of 5 years' experience in luxury sales. This experience has included designer labels, diamonds, and cars. I am most comfortable working in a luxury setting and would fit in very well here at Dior."

  5. 5.

    At Christian Dior, we are looking for team members who will treat every customer like they are the most important customer in the world. Tell me about your customer service skills and how you will uphold this value if hired.

      Customer service is a top priority for Dior so be sure to display to the interviewer that you are confident in your customer service skills. If you have an example of a time when you went over and above the call of duty, this is a great time to talk about that.

      Rachelle's Answer #1

      "I am consistently the most recognized sales professional in my current organization when it comes to positive customer feedback. I have very strong follow up skills and always ensure my customers have my undivided attention. I look forward to bringing my strong customer service skills to Christian Dior."

      Rachelle's Answer #2

      "Here are a few keywords you can use to describe your customer service skills:

      - Honest
      - Friendly
      - Helpful
      - Patient
      - Attentive
      - Clear Communicator
      - Use of Positive Language
      - Strong Product Knowledge
      - Goal Oriented"

  6. 6.

    At Dior we prefer to hire those dedicated to their professional growth. How do you plan to grow your career this year?

      Assure the interviewer that you are dedicated to your professional growth and that you can see yourself quickly advancing with Dior. Give an example of how you maintain a dedication to your growth and advancement in the workplace.

      Rachelle's Answer #1

      "I am very career focused and would like to see my career grow into a management focused role. I have been reading books on leadership this year which is helping me to prepare for the responsibility when the opportunity comes my way."

      Rachelle's Answer #2

      "I agree that professional growth is significant for any person wanting to advance in their career. I plan to grow my career by fully immersing myself in training at Christian Dior and taking full advantage of any additional workshops and courses that come my way."

  7. 7.

    What would you do if a client asked you about a product or service and you were unsure of the answer?

      The interviewer wants to know if you are an independent thinker. Explain that you would take the time to try and figure out the answer, but you are not afraid to ask questions if you need to.

      Rachelle's Answer #1

      "If I had a client ask me about something that I didn't know enough about, I would find the answer for them before giving a potentially false answer. I am okay with admitting when I don't know something, and I love to learn new things. Of course, I would find the answer quickly by asking the appropriate person or finding it within the company's internal resources."

      Rachelle's Answer #2

      "I plan to know everything possible about your products so I sure hope this would not happen to me very often! Should it happen, I would utilize all of the resources available to me or ask a manager for assistance."

  8. 8.

    At Christian Dior we have had concerns with employee theft. What would you do if you caught a co-worker stealing?

      Some businesses have trouble with employee theft, and they need to make sure that they are hiring someone who is honest and trustworthy. Talk to the interviewer about the steps you would take if you caught a co-worker stealing at Dior. Take this as an opportunity to reiterate your loyalty.

      Rachelle's Answer #1

      "I am sure that you have an internal policy for employee theft so I can assure you that I would follow the required steps to report the theft. I am a trustworthy person with a strong track record of honesty with my previous employers."

      Rachelle's Answer #2

      "If I caught an employee stealing, I would report the incident immediately. As a previous manager, I understand the value of employee honesty."

  9. 9.

    Tell me about your experience in training and coaching others.

      The interviewer would like to see that you are capable of leading and training others, even if you are not in an official leadership role. Discuss a time when you have taken on coaching responsibilities. If you do not bring experience coaching in the workplace, perhaps you can discuss any coaching experience you may have when it comes to extracurricular such as sports teams or volunteer work.

      Rachelle's Answer #1

      "In my last position, I trained new hires on how to use our CRM system. It was a very cool experience because it showed me that I love to teach and train. I am good at explaining how things work. It required a lot of patience, but it helped me to recognize my leadership potential."

      Rachelle's Answer #2

      "If you lack experience in training and coaching, you can respond with: "I haven't had the opportunity to coach or train anyone in the workplace formally, but I am interested in learning how to be an effective leader. I am eager to learn how to motivate others best."

  10. 10.

    I have worked with Dior for 12 years now. What questions do you have for me?

      It's always a great idea to have questions ready for the interviewer. Review the Christian Dior website and other online resources to ensure the questions you are asking are not mundane, or redundant. The last thing an interviewer wants to hear is a list of items you could have found the answers to from merely watching a video on their company site!

      Here are some sample questions:

      - When would you like to have this position filled?
      - How long has this role been vacant?
      - Is this a replacement search or a newly created role?
      - What is your favorite part about working here?
      - What is the company's primary goal for this position in the next 12 months?
      - Is there anything from my background and experience that I can clarify for you?
      - What do you see as the most significant change in the luxury fashion industry over the past three years?
      - Is there any reason why you would not hire me?

      Rachelle's Answer

      "Thank you for asking - I do have a few questions. What is top of mind when it comes to filling this role? In addition, what types of career growth opportunities would follow this position? And lastly, do you have internal candidates who are also interviewing for this position?"

  11. 11.

    Tell me something about yourself that I wouldn't know from reading your resume.

      The interviewer would like to get to know you apart from what is on your resume. You are indeed not obligated to discuss personal matters such as your kids, or relationship status, for instance. Stick with a couple of fun facts to show the interviewer that you are a real person, too. Your answer should be unique so that you are a memorable candidate!

      Focus on unique non-work related skills or hobbies. For example, you might share that you enjoy beat-boxing or making origami swans. Be prepared for the interviewer to stop you and ask you to perform your skill on the spot when its possible! (This will make you unforgettable!)

      Rachelle's Answer #1

      "I am an avid marathon runner and have traveled to 10 countries in the last eight years to compete in a variety of races. I am a competitive individual and enjoy keeping fit."

      Rachelle's Answer #2

      "A bit about me - I love to travel, read, and conduct research. I am a recent grad from Columbia University and have spent the past 12 months traveling the world. It was the best experience that I could have given myself as I was able to learn so much from seeing how the rest of the world lives. I returned to the US just last month and have been actively looking for work the past couple of weeks. I am looking forward to getting into the routine of a career again."

  12. 12.

    We have peak seasons in the fine retailer industry such as Christmas and Valentines Day. Are you able to work overtime, weekends, and evenings during those times?

      Assure the interviewer that you can provide flexibility in your schedule when it comes to the needs of the company. If you have any restrictions on your calendar, this is an excellent time to address them. If you do have limitations, be sure to offer a feasible workaround!

      Rachelle's Answer #1

      "I am more than willing to be a flexible employee for Dior. Currently, I do not have many restrictions on my availability, except for Tuesday evenings. If that is a concern, I can always try to work around that engagement."

      Rachelle's Answer #2

      "At this point, my schedule is wide open, and I welcome the idea of overtime work!"

  13. 13.

    How do you think we can be more innovative at Christian Dior?

      The interviewer isn't asking you to try to reinvent the wheel, right on the spot! You can share an idea for an upcoming trend or talk about a new way they can give back to communities in need. This is a smart way for the Dior interviewer to test your knowledge of their organization as well.

      Pick a topic like investing in employees, or developing a phone app. Take into account their values so that you can share an idea that they would find exciting and relevant.

      Rachelle's Answer #1

      "I know from my research that Christian Dior puts a lot of effort into gaining momentum through red carpet and celebrity collaborations. Even Kanye has mentioned Dior in multiple songs! I think that you could create a campaign to show that Dior is an investment for everyone - a classic yet still an on-trend option for many."

      Rachelle's Answer #2

      "It's difficult for me to provide feedback on innovation without having worked here; although, there is always room for improvement, in any organization. I find your branding to be very clean and energetic. One suggestion I would make would be to advertise more on less traditional platforms such as Spotify or social media."

  14. 14.

    Do you feel performance should be rewarded over experience?

      Do you feel that you should be paid based on tenure, results, or both? Discuss this with the interviewer and back your answer with an example, if possible.

      Rachelle's Answer #1

      "I feel that employees should be paid, and rewarded, based on their performance. A new employee would be greatly motivated through being rewarded for performance and it I believe this model encourages a healthy competition with tenured employees."

      Rachelle's Answer #2

      "I feel both performance and experience should be equally rewarded and weighted."

  15. 15.

    Tell me about a time at work when your integrity was challenged. How did you handle it?

      Have you ever faced a time, in the workplace, where you were put to the test when it came to your integrity? Perhaps a co-worker has asked you to lie, or you were tempted to be dishonest on your time sheet when the boss was away. Talk to the interviewer about a time when you overcame the temptation to be dishonest.

      Rachelle's Answer #1

      "Last year our manager went away on vacation for three weeks. Some of my co-workers wanted to falsify our time sheets to reflect overtime hours that we did not work. I disagreed and was able to convince them that it was a bad idea and certainly not worth being fired over."

      Rachelle's Answer #2

      "I once had a subordinate that would perform work after clocking out. There was a rumor later that I forced my team to work off the clock to save the company money. I did not know it was happening, and I certainly did not ask anyone to work outside of their scheduled shift. The situation was cleared up later."
