    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took a dayinterviewed at Lord & Taylor.

    Interview Details

    I applied through my university. The recruiter came on campus for interview. The interview only lasted 30 minutes and they asked typical behavioral style questions. In every question you had to give an example of a situation in which you demonstrated a certain skill. They got all of these questions from a packet they had in front of them and would write notes of what you were saying.

    Anonymous Employee in New York, NY
    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 daysinterviewed at Lord & Taylor in April 2014.

    Interview Details

    I was recruited on LinkedIn by Michael Brown, a corporate recruiter. Had a brief phone interview followed by an in-person interview with Michael. At the end he told me we'd schedule an interview with the Social Media Director and I should prepare a portfolio to bring to the meeting. I set up my portfolio and followed up 4 times before I gave up. My emails were completely ignored.

    Interview Questions
    • He asked how I would promote a new product from a coffee company online. It wasn't too bad, but a little difficult having not been given any details (e.g. budget, goals, location of the fictional coffee place, available assets, etc.)   Answer Question
