    Accounts Payable Specialist Interview

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 5 daysinterviewed at J. Jill Group in July 2013.

    Interview Details

    HR or Recruiting person was extremely short with me and spoke over me several times during the phone interview. I had seen some poor reviews here and I sent an email requesting explanation of them from the companies point of view. She would never let me speak through the whole interview. Then hung up on me. Not very profession behavior at all. The salary she quoted was EXTREMELY low for someone with a high level of experience as myself. They want something for nothing.

    Interview Questions
    • I cannot believe the recruiter asked me the most basic questions of where and what I did in my past. She had my resume right in front of her. So did I. LoL   View Answer

    Application Details

    I applied through other source. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at J. Jill Group in March 2012.

    Interview Details

    The interview consisted of an hr interview, a technical phone interview, which consisted of OOD questions, followed by two in-person interviews with the development manager, a senior software engineer and the director of IT. It was an easy technical interview, if you know your core OOD principals, you'll be OK.

    Reasons for Declining

    It seems like a great company to work for, but their IT infrastructure is in the process of getting rebuilt. They don't currently have a formal development process, a project plan or even a QA department. They rely on other employees to get their QA done. The people seemed nice, but I rejected the offer because the offer was not what I was looking for and because they were in the process of creating a new infrastructure. It just seemed like it would be a very chaotic place to work in.

    Vice President Creative Director Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Quincy, MA
    Anonymous Employee in Quincy, MA
    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at J. Jill Group in August 2011.

    Interview Details

    There were about 5 interviews total over about 2 months. The first 3 interviews were at the search firm's office and each one was different, though we reviewed my portfolio and experiences mostly. The final interview was at their HQ outside Boston. They booked my travel and accommodations which made things pretty easy. Upon arrival I met the head of HR, who was very personable and approachable, and really made the whole experience pleasant. She gave me a tour of the grounds and also reserved a conference room for me where I could work between my meetings. Then I interviewed with the CEO.
