Teaologist/Sales Associate Interview

Teaologist/Sales Associate
Charlotte, NC

I applied online and the process took a day - interviewed at Teavana in June 2012.

Interview Details – I submitted my application online and a couple of weeks later I got called in for an interview. When I went in everyone was really nice and they made me a cup of tea to have while on the interview which was nice. I then sat with the manager and he asked me about myself, why I wanted to work at Teavana, and what I would like to be doing in 5 years. The interview was overall really nice.

Interview Question – He asked me to name an occasion when someone called me untrustworthy and how I dealt with the accusation.   View Answer

Very Easy Interview

Sales Associate/Teaologist Interview

Sales Associate/Teaologist
Orlando, FL

I applied in-person and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Teavana in July 2012.

Interview Details – I got a phone call for an interview next week. We were told to show up 15 minutes early. The interview itself took place in the mall's noisy and non-private,food court (I know, how professional) in a group. We each took turns answering questions and the interview itself took about an hour which is way longer than what I suspect the timeliness of a group interview should be.

Interview Question – They wanted to hear very detailed accounts of your sales or "goals" experience (if you had no sales experience) more so than expected. The assistant manager probed about sales goals numbers, if they were met, etc.   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – There was no room to tell them I did not have full availability since that was the only thing they were looking for at the time and the pay rate seemed to be solidified.

Sales Associate/Teaologist Interview

Sales Associate/Teaologist
Charlotte, NC

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

Interview Details – I received a call that I was granted an interview scheduled for the following Monday. When I arrived for the interview I asked for the manager and he greeted himself and asked if I would like a cup of tea while he set up everything. While I waited I talked to the employees and everyone seemed really cool and cheerful. We headed out to a couch in the mall where the interview commenced. He asked me questions like what I thought about my previous job, and what I did there, and what I would like to do in the future. Then something really unexpected happen. He started asking me if I had any questions, LIKE 10-15 times! So I started questioning everything about the job and business alike which I think impressed him.

Interview Question – Name a time when your integrity has been questioned.   Answer Question

Sales Associate/Teaologist Interview

Sales Associate/Teaologist
Indianapolis, IN

I applied online and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Teavana in February 2012.

Interview Details – I was originally contacted by the assisstant manager, and had an interview with him two days later. The interview went smoothly with all typical interview questions. I did think it was add that the person who interviewed me only had two more days working at that store. I received a call a few days later from the general manager telling me that I was not what they were looking for at the moment. I received another call less than a week after that from the same person offering me the position. The entire process seemed very unorganized, which I soon realized was normal for this organization.

Interview Question – None of the questions were difficult or required any thought. They just asked questions about past jobs and experience.   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – Pretend that you like tea.
