Easy Interview

Application

I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Yankee Candle (Stamford, CT) in May 2015.

Interview

Interviewed with a store manager. She was very pleasant and laid back. Described the job very well. Asked about my retail experience and why I applied to Yankee Candle. I was very comfortable . Explained to me district manager upon her recommendation would do a second interview. Hopefully I will get to that step.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Yankee Candle.

    Interview

    I applied online. It took couple weeks for the hiring manager to call me. I missed the call and immediately called back only to respond that I couldn't make it to their interview day. They said they'll call back within the next two days. It had been a week and finally heard back from them. However, I missed the call and called them back only to be informed that they'll call me back to set up an interview. It had been another week. It's literally a phone tag. Especially when I received a voicemail from a different woman for Yankee Candle and gave one last final call to inquire about setting up an interview (and finally talked to the hiring manager) the tone of her voice was...not welcoming. She told me that she would call back next week. When the next week came and went, I decided that this was enough. This made me think twice about taking an interview with them and walked away. Plus, the hiring manager's voice was brusque and unpleasant, especially to a potential interviewee.
