Difficult Interview

Facilities Manager Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate
Enfield, CT

I applied online and the process took 4 days - interviewed at Hallmark in June 2012.

Interview Details – They called about 2 days after I put the online application in wanting to meet me in person. ONce there you have to fill out exact the same thing you did on the internet but except "by hand".

I went in to the interview with the hiring manager, was confident, only in the end to be told they had already hired someone INTERNAL and just BROUGHT OUTSIDE people in to interview because the had to fill the HR quota.

It was sad because I wasted my time and had more years on the job than my interviewer said he had.

Retail Merchandiser Interview

Anonymous Employee

I applied through other source and the process took 5 days - interviewed at Hallmark in February 2013.

Interview Details – Filled out and completed online application. Contingent upon submitted information, if a match, all available positions would be displayed. After applying you will be given the opportunity to schedule a phone interview either right away or at a later date (selected by you) requiring about 15min. The phone interview was very basic and monotone, just an overview of your personal information, the job position & requirements, also asking if physical ability would be an issue. I was then asked to summarize what was just asked of me to ensure that I understood the job in its entirety.

Interview Question – I was a little taken off guard when asked to repeat back what she had just said to me and what was already submitted in the job discription   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – Have not begun yet

Sales Associate Interview

Sales Associate
Pittsburgh, PA

I applied in-person and the process took 6 days - interviewed at Hallmark in January 2013.

Interview Details – I filled out a paper application in the store on the spot. Left it with the manager and received a call to schedule an interview about an hour later. I was interviewed by the manager and she basically did most of the talking. A few generic interview questions and a basic description of the position. She said she understood my tough schedule with school and extracurriculars and said she would try her hardest to accommodate that. I left, and got a call from her 4 days later offering me a job. The people involved in the process were all very easygoing and warm.

Interview Question – What is one challenge you had to overcome in school?   Answer Question
