    Receptionist Interview

    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Pampered Chef (Racine, WI) in March 2015.

    Interview

    I had an automated phone interview and I don't know why but I didn't feel comfortable with the questions asked. With it being an automated call I couldn't verify if I understood what they were asking. They took in my opinion a long time to to get back to me with the results of the call.

    Interview

    This part was like any other place. You apply then you get a call from HR. She set up an appointment then I met with a couple people. They called me back for a second interview. This was pretty routine of what you would expect. They called and checked the references.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Pampered Chef (Addison, IL) in December 2013.

    Interview

    Applied online and received a request for a phone interview with a recruiter a few days later. Very nice recruiter with common questions. Recruiter did their homework and asked specific questions about my experience based off of my resume and website. A few days later I received a call for an in-person interview. Scheduled a 4.5 hour interview which was conducted in 5 separate interviews with 5 different people. Everyone was very nice and welcoming. A very positive experience, even though an offer was not made. Pampered Chef does drug test. Not an issue for everyone, but something to note for a lot of creatives.

    Interview Questions

    • No unexpected questions, but hard not to sound redundant with 5 separate interviews.   Answer Question

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Pampered Chef (Addison, IL).

    Interview

    HIGHLY structured process. I was contacted by a recruiter's assistant, interviewed by the recruiter who passed my resume on to HR at the Pampered Chef. The HR team reviewed all resumes and conducted at least one (and I heard from the recruiter sometimes 2) interviews with individual candidates. That's followed up by a phone call with the hiring manager, and then and only then an in-person interview on site at their location.

    Interview Questions

    • I had a longish (35+ minute) conversation with the HR person.Our conversation took a strange turn as I answered a question ("Tell me about the origin of your passion for food"); after a long discussion leading up to that question the HR person all but hung up on me as I answered.   Answer Question

    Easy Interview

    Application

    The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Pampered Chef (Addison, IL) in September 2011.

    Interview

    Initial screening via telephone. Most questions focused on quantifying workload and rating skills. At the end of phone interview, HR recruiter requested writing samples and said she would get back to me within two weeks. The following week, I was invited for a face-to-face interview with the HR recruiter and two members of the management team. The three one-on-one interview were 30 minutes each. The HR recruiter interview was almost an exact repeat of the phone interview. The first manager asked me to summarize my experience in my own words and discussed the samples I submitted. The second manager was more focused on the approvals process and how I dealt with feedback. All in all, a relatively easy interview that didn't go anywhere.
