    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Bloomingdale's.

    Interview

    it was a very long interview. They asked several questions. Had to go through several rounds of interview with various people, a very long and annoying process. After several rounds of interviews they keep you waiting for weeks until they give you a call to let you know if you passed to the next round of the interview.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Bloomingdale's (Estero, FL) in August 2015.

    Interview

    I applied online and received an email to schedule the interview online the very next day. Once I arrived the following day, I was told the position had been posted by mistake and the HR position was not available at that location. The store manager was very nice and said he thought about calling me but was told to allow me to come in and ask if I would be interested in a sales position for $10/hr. I'm an experienced HR professional with over 20 years experience. If he hadn't been so nice and apologetic, I probably would have told him that a phone call would have been appreciated so my time had not been wasted. I spent the time preparing for an interview and getting dressed up for nothing and that is disappointing. I read of this same experience in CA and wonder if they do this on purpose. At the very least, they should call and make sure someone is interested in an entirely different position than the one they applied for. That is really HR 101. This left me with a bad feeling for Bloomingdales but the Store Manager was a class act. He was probably advised by HR.

    Interview

    I found out about the executive development program through my campus job recruitment fair. There were many information sessions that you could attend to learn more about the program and hear from people that either were going through the program or went through the program. There were two interviews in total. The first was on campus very behavioral based questions and the second was at a bloomingdales location nearby group based but more casual.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Bloomingdale's.

    Interview

    The interview process was relatively straight forward. I applied and a week later received an email from a recruiter to schedule a phone interview. The following week I had my phone interview and was told that the next step was to complete an assessment to see "if i was a good fit". The assessment was not difficult (just take your time). A few days later, I was informed that I was a good fit, unfortunately there were a few candidates already in final interview stages

    • The assessment essentially addressed strategic thinking and basic problem solving   Answer Question
