    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

    I applied through other source – interviewed at Lands' End.

    Interview Details

    DM called and set up interview, I arrived on time but no one had seen the DM. Turned out she had gone out of town and had forgotten about the interview. The Sears store manager did my First interview, then when the DM was back in town, she did the second. Each was only 20-30 min. Sears SM mostly talked about Sears, LEDM asked a few questions off of my resume background.

    Interview Questions
    Negotiation Details
    LEDM offered salary, I told her what I was looking for and she did not know if she could meet it or not and had to get back to me. She called the next day and hit a rate in between her offer and my need.

    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at Lands' End in October 2014.

    Interview Details

    Met with 1 women from HR and 4 people from various Merchandising Departments. All of the questions were very straight forward. They were all very nice. I felt like I was able to have a conversation with them, not simply back and forth Q&A. Most common question was to ask about my financial experience.

    I applied for the position on-line. I was then contacted by the headhunter who had the exclusive on filling the position. She was very thorough with three phone calls and preparation work before a phone call with the hiring manager. A month later I was invited for an in-person day at corporate with six team members. It was an intense day of back to back interviews and a lunch interview. They had already interviewed a number of other candidates and were making their final choice that week.

    I've been at this company for a long time. Each time I submitted my resume for newly posted positions, our Employee Service Department never once acknowledged my job interest; not a follow-up email or call....nothing. Very disappointing.

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at Lands' End in April 2014.

    Interview Details

    The first round interview was a phone interview with HR. The questions asked were pretty simple. It was about my experience in the past. After the first round, I was invited to have a second round interview in Dodgeville, WI. I got to interview with 4 people, one at a time. Three of them were HR and one was the Director of Contact Strategy whom I think made the hiring decision.
