    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at See's Candies (Newark, CA) in April 2015.

    Interview

    Apply at the store, they schedule a interview. I previously had worked the Christmas season with See's. This helped in getting the floater position. They are also opening a new store which was motivation for additional hiring. See's has been in business since the 1920's. If you are in school and are looking for a Part-time job it may be nice.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online – interviewed at See's Candies.

    Interview

    Applied through the website. Got a phone interview with their recruitment manager. We talked on the phone and it was fairly typical. He asked about my experience and what kind of job I was looking for. Where I saw myself. It felt, as with many recruiters, that he was checking boxes—especially since I had partly answered some of his questions before we got to them just within the context of our conversation and he went through the motions of asking that question anyway. Otherwise perfectly pleasant and answered my questions about the company culture without reservation. I got the sense that See's is a good company to work for but has a very small in-house creative department with a fair number of lifers. I was looking for an opportunity where I could keep moving up to the next level but it seems like someone has to retire before hey give up a seat at the table. I didn't pursue this job further after that.
