    Clock and Watch Manager Interview

    Anonymous Employee
    Anonymous Employee
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took a weekinterviewed at Bonhams in November 2014.

    Interview Details

    I got a call back fairly quickly from my initial application submission date via email - within a week. Interview was set-up for the following week. The interview itself was short and not many job related questions were asked. I was a bit surprised to find out how little this person knew about my related job experience. He had my resume in front of him but gave wrong information in regards to my previous experience. Still, offer to have me come in for a second interview.

    • He asked me if I spoke Chinese even though my language skills were listed on the resume. I hate to think that he assumed I was Chinese. Awkward!   View Answer

    Front Desk/Bids Clerk Interview

    Anonymous Employee in New York, NY
    Anonymous Employee in New York, NY
    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 1+ weekinterviewed at Bonhams in January 2013.

    Interview Details

    I was an internal candidate who worked part time for the company for over a year. I was recommended by several colleagues for the position. The interview was fairly basic - interest in the position/company and my comfort with client databases.

    I did not get the offer initially, but after another candidate fell through I was given an offer over the phone about a month later. However, it became clear that there would be no pay raise though the responsibilities and time commitment were exponentially greater. I had to turn it down.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Bonhams in November 2013.

    Interview Details

    I had an interview directly with the Head of the Office and another colleague. It was a very basic and short interview and they did not go in depth with my CV. First they gave me a detailed job descrption and then they asked just a couple of question. It felt like they did not really want to know me.
