    Senior Graphic Designer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Sandpoint, ID
    Application Details

    I applied in-person. The process took 1 week - interviewed at Coldwater Creek.

    Interview Details

    Interview process was enjoyable and professional. Attire was casual. I was interviewed by 4 different people, which was fine, but when 4 people interview you and ask nearly identical questions, by the last session, I was getting discouraged about their organizational and communication skills. Ultimately I was hired - but had no idea who made the final choice....

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 1 week - interviewed at Coldwater Creek.

    Interview Details

    Took two days to call me for an interview. The manager was so friendly and informative about the salary and benefits right away. I went in for the interview and the District Manager and the Store manager were there. Mostly the questions were about your prior managing experience. They made the interview so comfortable and they were very easy to talk to. The District Manager and Store Manager are great. They do not micromanage and treat you like an adult.
