    Second Assistant Manager Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a weekinterviewed at Harry and David (Washington, PA) in December 2014.

    Interview

    When I was contacted the store manager was very friendly. She was off for two days when I called back so I scheduled my interview a few days later. That's when it went down hill. When I got there for my interview, I heard the store manager and an associate talking about how funny it would be to make me stand there like an idiot before I was taken back for my interview. For some reason they didn't like the fact that I had 7 years of retail experience and promotions within a single company? The assistant manager said "oh this is the only job you've had?" They had me step out for a moment while they discussed. The store manager came back out and said "we have other candidates too. We'll be in touch" and basically pushed me out of the store. I never heard back. So rude and unprofessional that I would not have accepted an offer I had one.

    Application

    I applied online – interviewed at Harry and David (Eugene, OR) in November 2014.

    Interview

    I applied online and received a link to take a few online assessments. I was called in for an interview after background check. I interviewed at the Eugene call center. The interview went fairly well. I filled out paperwork after receiving the job offer after my interview. The hiring person seemed to be a very nice person and very knowledgeable about the company. I was pretty excited about getting hired since I have not worked in a call center before, and it seemed like a great new skill to learn.

    Interview Questions

    • The interview was pretty low key I was asked what I thought good customer service meant. I was also put on the spot to perform a mock call. Make sure you have a good sales pitch prepared.   Answer Question

    Interview

    I applied for the job at the employment center. An appointment for the next day was made for me. I returned for an interview for the call center job. I was interviewed, and was offered either a customer service support or a business accounts job. I chose the support job because I thought it would be more fun working directly with the public.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1+ weekinterviewed at Harry and David.

    Interview

    Very fast process from recruiter "used car salesperson" pitch, to in person interviews to offer
    and move. (less than 3 weeks from initial point-of-contact).

    Medford is very difficult to recruit top talent to the area. Beware of the pitch that it rarely snows (it is cold enough to snow all winter, the right conditions just do not happen).

    Tuesday Phone screen from recruiter, Weds phone call with hiring mgr, Thursday phone screen VP of Dept. Friday travel plans were made and flew up over the weekend to interview on Monday. Had an offer the following Tuesday.

    WARNING: the closer to "SEASON" (Sept-Dec) the more desperate to fill seats. HD execs have a "He or She **will do**" attitude and will get rid on people in Feb or March that do not meet expectations.

    Interview Questions

    • One VP simply talked about himself almost the entirely interview. After working at HD over a period of time, there is a set interview panel and they get tired of simply interviewing over and over again. Only the most junior member asked questions that one would find by googling "interview questions." Many will ask "Why Medford?" Others will try to sell you on Medford with "there is no traffic or sales tax."   1 Answer

    Negotiation

    Was able to negotiate a higher pay rate quickly (outside of the designated pay range) and for HD to reimburse for COBRA insurance payments.

    The relocation package is very good, for one reason, Medford.
