Average Interview

Application

I applied online. The process took 1+ weekinterviewed at Bloomingdale's (Sherman Oaks, CA) in March 2015.

Interview

Applied online. Got an email to schedule a group interview a few days later. Scheduled the group interview for the beginning of the following week. I came in from a very professional standpoint, emphasizing customer service and professional attitude. They seemed to dislike that, and were looking for people with creativity rather than a business attitude. To get the job, discuss how you love art, paintings, and how you learned about yourself through the journey of art. Don't use logic in your responses, use creativity.

    Interview

    We had a group interview then an individual interview. So they didn't take you to other hiring managers after the first one, then they probably won't take you. Easy questions.

    4 interviews. Dept manager was more honest than others about pay. But I was lead to believe I would make a lot more money. They make job seem more rosy than what it is.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5 daysinterviewed at Bloomingdale's (Garden City, NY) in March 2011.

    Interview

    I went in for an interview and the 1st interview went well so then they asked if i wanted to wait and do a second interview in 20 minutes so I waited, and that interview went well too, then they had asked me for a third interview and said that they would call me. They called me maybe 5 days later to do the third interview and that went well and i had gotten offered the job and placed me, and filled out the application and forms so they could do a background check. They told me that they would call me when to start for training. I got the call 3 WEEKS later and they said that there was a mistake made that the position that was offered to me was not there and kept trying to offer me lower positions. I was without a job the whole time. The people were very friendly there, play up customer service skills to impress them.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Bloomingdale's (Sherman Oaks, CA) in October 2010.

    Interview

    Hiring and interview process was not as difficult as i thought, they don't ask very professional questions, they must like you that is the only thing. If you be friendly, good looking and "able to connect" then you have more chances to get hired.

    Interview

    I was hired as a seasonal employee but moved to a permeant position when one opened up. The process was very casual. The manager of the hiring department simply walked me down to HR, where I filled out paper work.

    I was offered $15 an hour and negotiated to $16 an hour. Always ask for more.
