    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took a dayinterviewed at Essilor of America (Dallas, TX) in January 2008.

    Interview

    Recruiting contacted me for an interview. I completed their basic skills test but never heard back from the company's inside recruiter even with period followups via phone and email.
    ADVICE - Avoid Essilor's recruiting team and try to communicate only with the hiring manager.

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at Essilor of America.

    Interview

    Patience is key. The process for this size of a company is very long. I am going to guess that the reason is due to the amount of applicants. There are a lot of applicants now due to industry changes. A new hire will have to endure a time period of training before getting into the field. Training can be tedious, but important to success. Show tolerance to this in an interview.

    Interview Questions

    Negotiation

    Yes...salary is not very negotiable, however, vacation, and sales time frame guarantees are.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 daysinterviewed at Essilor of America (Carrollton, TX) in April 2011.

    Interview

    I applied online at the Essilor site and was contacted by a recruiter. She described the role and asked a few preliminary questions. She arranged for an in-person interview where I met with the hiring manager and his superior. It was obvious from the start that I was not qualified for the role. The hiring manager asked me a series of technical questions that likely confirmed to him that I wasn't the person he was looking for. His manager seemed nice at first, but made it clear that the last person hired 'couldn't hack it' in the department. She also made it clear that I'd be subjected to a barrage of accounting tests to 'prove I know what is on my resume'. Even if they had called me to move further in the process, I would have declined after that.

    Interview

    HR interview was straight forward.
    Panel interview with 2 hiring managers, one is French. He wanted to speak French to me since my resume mentioned I'm a French linguist as well. It was a bit strange since the other interviewer did not speak French. I had gear back the discussion to why I was there and get back to business.

    I was asked to do an MS Excel test online.
