I applied through other source - interviewed at Pandora Jewelry in October 2012.

Interview Details – Group Interview style, told us to make a bracelet and choice of charms by judging the person next to us which you barely knew-which was a great technique, you instantly fall in love with the manager and assistant interviewing you, received a call in two days for a job offer.

Interview Question – Whats the most least priced & high priced charm in our store?   View Answer

Sales Associate Interview

Sales Associate
Altamonte Springs, FL

I applied through an employee referral and the process took 5 days - interviewed at Pandora Jewelry in September 2012.

Interview Details – I had one interview initially after posting my resume to a few job sites. I was contacted by the manager of a store opening up in Altamonte Springs and was invited to interview with her. She gave me a brief interview over the phone, and soon asked to meet me later in the week.

The interview itself wasn't too long, probably about twenty minutes total. She was very interested in my background and customer service experience. Overall, it was a very comfortable and inviting environment. She took the time to get to know me as a potential employee, and whether I'd be an asset she would want on her team.

I filled out some extra paperwork, and within a few days, I was contacted and offered a position.

Interview Question – How would you meet any last-minute goals assigned to you?   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – Being I don't have as extensive a retail experience as I'd like, I kept negotiations to a minimum. Don't hesitate to sell yourself and see what you can do.

Sales Associate Interview

Sales Associate
Roseville, MN

The process took a day - interviewed at Pandora Jewelry in April 2012.

Interview Details – Sent in my resume and was called within a few days, had a very brief phone interview (they asked me why I wanted to work for Pandora). I had the interview where they mostly asked personality questions. They never really went over my experience. They then sent me an email stating that I would not be hired based on my professional and educational background. I thought the interview was a little unfair, why even interview if I did not have the experience you were looking for? Either that or they had a totally different agenda-who knows..but overall it was an easy interview.

Interview Question – How would your friends describe you in three words?   Answer Question

I applied online and the process took 2 days - interviewed at Pandora Jewelry in November 2011.

Interview Details – Basically I emailed my resume to the owner of the store on a Wednesday night, she contacted me on Thursday to schedule the interview for Friday. I came in, the whole interview probably lasted about 20 minutes, very brief. Asked me questions about my sales experience, so on. At the end, she asked for my references, and if it all panned out good she would extend an offer. Needless to say, Saturday she contacted me to offer me the position!

I applied online and interviewed at Pandora Jewelry.

Interview Details – Very easy interview, I actually thought I screwed up and was surprised when I got a call for a job offer a couple of days later. Interviewed by two people, I guess the manager and assistant manager. It was a regular retail interview and they took notes on my answers. Make sure you're wearing at least one item of their jewelry.

Interview Question – Describe your daily routine. I thought that was kind of odd.
Other than that, all normal expected questions...Why do you want to work here, what can you tell us about the company, do you wear our jewelry etc.
