    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Essilor of America (Dallas, TX) in September 2011.

    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.

    • Can you work late at night, sometime the two of us logged in from home around midnight.   Answer Question

    Inventory Analyst Interview

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    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.
