    Interview Details

    The interview process was easy going. The manager was very laid back through the interview and it was very casual. Lots of the questions were creative and meant to get a feel for your personality. The interview had some different standard questions mixed including questions about work history and strengths so on. Overall the interview was a very positive experience and only one was needed as my second interview was cancelled.

    Initially contacted employer through craigslist. Was initially contacted by phone by someone from human resources. She passed me on to an in-person interview at a local cafe.

    Shift Leader Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Chicago, IL
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Chicago, IL
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Argo Tea in July 2010.

    Interview Details

    The interview started 30 minutes late, so I sat around in the shop drinking water and staring around. Once the GM came over, she was very nice, apologized, and we started. We got along great, and she offered me a second interview after about an hour of talking.

    They use this long checklist of things to talk about during an interview. It would be best for you to lead the conversation. They have so much to get through in an hour, keep the focus on you and not on their company checklist.

    Interview Questions
    • Why do you feel you would be a good fit for Argo Tea.   View Answer
    Reasons for Declining

    I declined because I have a strong retail background and this would have been a huge pay cut. I feel like I could have been happy there though, so if someone is interested and is already an entry-level manager. This might by the job for you.

    The main reason I declined the offer was because of how unorganized Argo Tea seemed to be. Late for the interview, but also it took weeks for them to get back to me to set up a second interview. The voicemail system is almost non-existent. They only phone is in the manager's office, and thus you can leave a voicemail but there is no guarantee when they will check it.

    The process took a dayinterviewed at Argo Tea in July 2011.

    Interview Details

    Interview consisted of reviewing my background and hypothetical scenarios. The company represents themselves as very diverse and open. Not necessarily, does not pertain to management. Was given no particular reason for no offer except they wanted someone different. Also, their pay is below competitive.
