    Pandora Jewelry Sales Associate Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in New York, NY
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in New York, NY
    Application Details

    I applied through other source. The process took a weekinterviewed at Pandora Jewelry in March 2015.

    Interview Details

    I applied online for a new store that was opening locally, having no experience in retail and being a full time tertiary student I was not expecting to be getting a call for an interview. I received a call from a woman asking me a few question such as 'what kind of hours are you interested in?' She then informed me that they would like to interview me the following day.

    For the interview I dressed as I would if I were working in the store, black pants and a blazer with a plain white top, simple/minimal jewellery.

    The man interviewing me was pleasant and very easy to talk to, he informed me they prefer hiring first year tertiary student (which I am) as it means they are usually able to work for a longer amount of time. The interview went for about 15 minutes, is which we also discussed the opening of the store, potential training dates if I were to get the job and preferred work hours/days. There were no questions regarding the company history or my knowledge of jewellery, mostly questions regarding previous work experience, what I study and personal goals. The following day I received a phone call informing me that they would like to offer me the position.

    Interview Questions
    Negotiation Details
    I was told my hourly rate during the phone call offering me the position. I didn't feel the need to negotiate this as it is slightly above minimum wage and I will be training.

    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Pandora Jewelry in February 2015.

    Interview Details

    I applied online & received an email several days later. I've also worked with Pandora in the past, opening several boutiques in the Caribbean. So I was able to reach out to my contacts. I'm not sure if she reached out to me based on my contacts or because I applied online. The HR director set up a phone interview for several days later. The call lasted about 20 minutes. This was a few days ago & was told it would be a little over a week before I hear anything.

    Sales Associate Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Natick, MA
    Anonymous Employee in Natick, MA
    Application Details

    I applied through other source. The process took 3+ monthsinterviewed at Pandora Jewelry.

    Interview Details

    I applied with Pandora at the Natick Collection in July and got a call back to come interview in August. The interview took almost 3 hours and consisted of the manager doing all the talking. She talked about customers and her staff at great length. This was very unprofessional as she didn't know if i knew any of these people already. She wanted me to meet with her DM and discuss an opening for a management position that was coming in the near future.She gave me all the necessary new hire paperwork to fill out and a release form to do a background and credit check. She said she'd get back to me the next week and arrange the next meeting. I Emailed and texted her several times with no response. I passed up other positions because she led me to believe I was a good candidate and would be able to move up in responsibilities. After 2 months of no response from her, I gave up. This was all very unprofessional and disappointing. Since this store is owned by Ross-Simons they should also be held accountable for bad management.
