Human Resources Administrator (Atlanta) Interview

Human Resources Administrator (Atlanta)

I applied online and the process took 1 week - interviewed at Teavana in July 2012.

Interview Details – Submitted application online and sent resume directly to hiring manager. Was invited for phone interview within days. Questions were very basic and generic. No behavioral interview questions. Is a newly created position and he did not have a very good idea of exactly what the true job design was. That left a pretty poor impression. He told me they were phone interviewing 50 people before narrowing down to top choices that would be brought in for in-person interviews. I don't think he needed to share that info and I also think phone interviewing a whopping 50 candidates is rather ineffective. I was told I would be contacted within a couple of weeks with an update on whatever the decision would be. I heard nothing. They must have started interviewing prematurely and hadn't developed the job objectives because I saw in a new job posting that the position was changed to Payroll Administrator. I emailed the hiring manager for clarification and an update. I got no response. Emailed him again a few weeks later and he still ignored me. That's pretty rude. A 'thanks but no thanks' reply would have sufficed. I work in corporate recruiting for a national leader and even with the high volume of candidates I interact with daily, I'd never flat out ignore a candidate who has already spent the time to interview with me. That is just in poor taste and is bad business. I also fulfill my promise of updating a candidate when I say I will. This experience confirmed that Teavana is not nearly as professional as I thought. Actions of recruiting reps speak volumes about a company and I got this message loud and clear. If this is how they treat candidates, I can imagine how they treat employees. I will not reccommend to any of my peers that they pursue opportunities with Teavana.
