    Application Details

    I applied in-person. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Dick Blick.

    Interview Details

    The interview was weird. One of the staff members was walking me to the back of the store and told me not to be afraid of the hiring manager because "She's just like that." The manager also brought me into Panera's (next door) for an interview.....which was loud and uncomfortable. After the interview she told me to email her a week later. I did; no response for a few days. I called twice and left a message over the next few days and just never heard back. I also drove more than 2 hours for the interview and she knew that (don't live in Boston in the summer). I thought it was very inconsiderate that she couldn't take the time to write a sentence via email telling me I didn't get the job. It's not that she's slow at replying to emails, because when we were emailing each other before my interview she responded almost the day of or the day after. I was honestly baffled because I had 2 years of experience working in another art store known for its astounding customer service, am a major in the fine arts, and have a clean record save for a speeding ticket. Who knows.

    I applied in-person. The process took 1+ weekinterviewed at Dick Blick in June 2011.

    Interview Details

    Blicks interview was supposed to be a group interview but two other people canceled. The interview was very relaxed and allowed you to shine. The workers there are very outgoing. They perfer the workers to be artist since you'll be helping other artist that enter the store. Havinng retail experience and art school background was a MAJOR plus.
