    Application Details

    I interviewed online. The process took 3 weeks - interviewed at Pampered Chef.

    Interview Details

    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.

    I interviewed online. The process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Pampered Chef in December 2013.

    Interview Details

    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.

    HR phone interview was very interesting. HR person had good technical background and friendly. Phone interview with hiring manager seemed rushed, not friendly. Started off straight with technical without any introduction.

    I interviewed through college or university. The process took a day - interviewed at Pampered Chef in February 2009.

    Interview Details

    Only student to reply to e-vite from a career booth sign up. Met up with 3 women who sell Pampered Chef, ate taco dip and talked about basic products -- they told me their stories. I told them my interest in nutrition and they had me step out of the room while they chose who would "get" me. Your status increases with recruits.

    Manager, Recipe & Food Editorial Interview

    Application Details

    I interviewed through a recruiter. The process took 3 weeks - interviewed at Pampered Chef.

    Interview Details

    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

    Senior CopyWriter Interview

    The process took 3 weeks - interviewed at Pampered Chef in September 2011.

    Interview Details

    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.

    I interviewed through an employee referral. The process took 1 week - interviewed at Pampered Chef.

    Interview Details

    I was interviewed by my recruiter's director, who asked about the motivation behind my desire to join the company. Because working as a consultant with the Pampered Chef is essentially a self-selected opportunity it is unlikely that someone would be denied the endorsement of the director. Still, the interview is helpful to the consultant by asking appropriate questions and offering an opportunity to ask questions and discuss concerns.
