    Recruiting Specialist Interview

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Eddie Bauer in April 2014.

    Interview Details

    I was very impressed with the speed with which the managers moved! I received a call to schedule a phone interview about 3 hours after applying online and had the interview scheduled the next day. It lasted only about 15 minutes and a few days later I received a call to come in for a second round interview with two hiring managers. It was scheduled for a week later and lasted about 45 minutes. Overall the process was very quick and efficient and I really appreciate that they didn't play games. The two managers I met with were really friendly and made me feel very at-east during the whole process. Although I was not offered the position, the hiring manager called me personally to let me know. It was nice to have that personal touch instead of a generic letter in the mail. I was left with a very positive attitude towards the company and the department.

    Interview Questions

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Washington, DC
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took a weekinterviewed at Eddie Bauer in December 2013.

    Interview Details

    Online application, brief phone interview with District Manager and 1:1 interview with District Manager. Interview was conducted in the mall hallways. I brought 2 copies of my resume and wore a suit. The DM was unkempt (shorts, dirty shoes and unbrushed hair) & made puckering expressions after each question.

    Interview Questions
    • At best, the questions were disorganized and weird. I was not allowed to ask probing questions. I had to insist on making basic fact finding questions about the location. I gently coaxed her to end the interview.   Answer Question

    Negotiation Details
    There's really no negotiation phase...When I went into the interview, I knew what the minimum wage was in my state was, what the average wage was for EB Sales Guides, and I knew that it wouldn't be significantly more/less than the average of those rates. I started out at $9.25/hr, and though I was told that evaluations for me would be in June (I started 09/2013), I was given a raise after three strong months.

    Marketing Position Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Bellevue, WA
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Bellevue, WA
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Eddie Bauer in April 2013.

    Interview Details

    HR emailed me after they received my online resume. We setup a time to have a conversation about the position. Days later we had a great conversation. They were really nice. HR told me that they wanted to interview me even if they didn't know the way they were going to go with the position. They were either going to hire someone or hire a company. HR told me to keep in contact with them.

    A week later, I emailed HR to tell them that I was still interested. A week after that they responded to ask me to come in for an inperson interview with the hiring manager.

    The next week, I arrived at their HQ in Bellevue 10 minutes early. The receptionist called HR, but they were stuck in traffic. I was told to wait in one of the conference rooms. About 10 minutes later the hiring manager came into the room. She flat out told me the interview wouldn't take the hour that it was scheduled, but probably would take less than 30 minutes. We had a great conversation. Interview ended about 15-20 minutes later.

    The HR person (who was late) popped into the room after the interview. I was sitting and through they would sit down also to talk about the next steps. Instead they stood there telling me what would happen next. They didn't close the door. Just stood there. They were very cold and didn't seem very friendly.

    Forward to the next week, I emailed HR to followup. They emailed me a week after to tell me that I didn't have the right industry experience. This I found very odd, since that was never brought up during the phone call or inperson interview.

    Co-Manager Interview

    Application Details

    I applied in-person – interviewed at Eddie Bauer in February 2013.

    Interview Details

    I have no clue whether or not I am going to get the job, but the interview process was awesome. I was able to give the hiring manager a hard copy of my resume and application before the interview which was refreshing. So many companies now use online application systems that use search bots to disqualify people based key word searches. I was granted an interview the next week. The interview did not seem rushed and the hiring manager did a good job selling the brand to me. She answered all of my questions intelligently and her questions were relevant and well explained. I will definitely accept this position if offered.

    Interview Questions
    • I really can't think of any it was a very easy and good interiew. Although When I asked how Eddie Bauer plans to compete in the outdoor adventure industry again, it seemed a challenge for the manager to answer.   Answer Question
