    Corporate Auditor Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Wilton, NY
    Declined Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Stewart's Shops (Wilton, NY) in November 2012.

    Interview

    I was called for a corporate auditor interview, had a great interview. I was informed that I would be getting a second interview within two weeks. I was NOT informed that there was no corporate auditor position open at that time! At the second interview, I was surprised and a little pissed off when they told me they had a part time "partner" job available, at minimum wage!

    Interview Questions

    • "Would you be willing to leave your very well-paying job for a minimum wage cashier job?"   1 Answer

    Reasons for Declining

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Stewart's Shops (Saratoga Springs, NY) in November 2011.

    Interview

    I had my first interview today. It was with the district manager at one of the local shops. It went well. It was a very personal interview, almost like having a conversation. He asked questions like: "Where do you see yourself in 5 years? Why Stewart's? and about my prior work experience. He told me that they will contact me for a second interview in 7-10 days, if they decide to. He also went over my application which had a variety of questions on it. Overall, I felt very comfortable and thought it went well.

    Real Estate and Project Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Saratoga Springs, NY
    Accepted Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Stewart's Shops (Saratoga Springs, NY) in October 2011.

    Interview

    Informal interview process. Stress interview structure to bargain cheaply. Seek to hire people into "trial" positions to establish whether they "fit" into the organizations unusual "culture." Friendly at first but does not last. Candid and abrasive with promises of good intent for employee growth in development, which later on equates to nothing more than micromanagement and mistreatment.

    Interview Questions

    Negotiation

    Cheap bargainers seeking lowest possible price. Do not recommend this company for employment.

    Shop Partner Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Saratoga Springs, NY
    Accepted Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Stewart's Shops (Saratoga Springs, NY) in July 2011.

    Interview

    Initial communications were shaky. I applied at the corporate plant twice and was declined for even an interview. I then responded to an online ad for employment at a shop and was contacted within a few days. Scheduling a time to meet with this particular manager was difficult and took two weeks to find a time suitable for the two of us. I then had two interviews, the first which was merely management bragging about the corporations benefits. The second was a more formal interview with a more experienced manager in which the company attempted to direct me to take a part time position instead of the full time one I was told was open. I was offered and accepted a full time position with the company.

    Interview Questions

    • Stewart's requires you to answer math questions on your application. This isn't difficult but annoying because they use a POS system that is Windows based and can be operated by a monkey!   1 Answer

    Negotiation

    The negotiation phase isn't really negotiations. The company tells you what they're offering you and either you want it or you walk away. Stewart's has a tendency to pay a lower hourly wage because they feel their benefits compensate for that.
