Merchandise Programming Manager Interview

Anonymous Employee

Interviewed at Rue La La

Interview Details – Initially contacted by a recruiter, who was my point of contact throughout the entire process. Initial phone interview to point of hire took a month and a half and included two rounds of interviews. The first round was more formal, with four members of the teams I would be working closely with. These were standard interviews but felt more like conversations rather than a quiz. This part of the process was insightful because as much as they learned about me, I also learned a great deal more about the position and the company. After about 2-3 weeks I was called in for a second interview. The waiting time in between definitely caused anxiety but the company had been upfront with telling me it would be some time because they were interviewing other candidates. I was extremely nervous going into the second interview, but afterward was genuinely appreciative of the fact that I had the second interview. It was much more informal and was more for my benefit to make sure I felt like I would be a good fit with the company. It included a q&a that I was able to conduct on my future boss and also lunch with a current employee (who also happened to be a former boss from a previous company). After the second interview, it took about a week to hear back with an offer.

Interview Question – Most of the interview was conversation based so I never felt like I was put on the spot with a question I couldn't answer. Most questions were about the specific skills I had learned throughout my career and asked to back up with examples.   Answer Question

Senior SQA Engineer Interview

Senior SQA Engineer
Boston, MA

I applied through an employee referral and the process took 4 days - interviewed at Rue La La.

Interview Details – Initial interview contact was through a internal recommendation interview schedule was about 3.5 hours. Met with dev lead, qa lead, upper tech manager, and project manager. Came back for a second round for two people that were out before. Met with HR and a CTO.

Interview Question – The question in this case were about working with creative types which the job at the time was going to involve. The technical interviews can get technical especially if you are being hire to work on a specific technology. Also, look out for brain teasers, the answer is secondary, they want to see your process and deductive process.   Answer Question

Vice President, Director Business Development Interview

Anonymous Employee
Boston, MA

I applied through an employee referral - interviewed at Rue La La in July 2010.

Interview Details – Hiring process very long...too long. but that is the hardest part!

Interview Question – very standard. mostly about meeting with different division heads to see if you are a "good fit for the culture" very much about culture"   View Answer

Negotiation Details – Fairly straight forward. They have ranges for each title Director 150-200 and I required in the middle. bonus changes from quartlerly to monthly so there were some grwoing pains as the company continued to grow within the space
