Associate Product Manager Interview

Associate Product Manager
San Francisco, CA

Interviewed at Stella & Dot

Interview Details – quick to setup a call with hiring manager, but day-of interview was bad news bears - very disorganized. Double booked against a candidate applying for the same position. 6 back-to-back interviews of 30 minutes each. 3 of 6 interviewers were more than 5 minutes late. I got asked the same question by 3 people that I already went through with the screener. I guess they don't share notes.

Office energy was uninspiring - seems like a bunch of clock punchers just passing time and collecting paychecks. Nobody seemed especially excited about their work.

It's been over 30 days, and repeated inquiries, but I haven't heard anything back. As a formality, any company should formally close the loop with a candidate, even if it's as simple as hitting 'reject' in jobvite.

Inventory Planner/Inventory Planning Manager Interview

Inventory Planner/Inventory Planning Manager

I applied online and the process took 5 days - interviewed at Stella & Dot.

Interview Details – I applied for inventory planner position online, and received a call from the HR- recruiter within few days to talk about past experiences and discuss the available role. Phone screening was the first step in the recruiting process, candidates selected after this would be meeting the team for a more operations related interview. There was no response from the recruiter after the call. I was wondering if it was the salary expectation that limited them.

Inventory Planner Interview

Inventory Planner
San Bruno, CA

I applied online and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Stella & Dot in March 2014.

Interview Details – Probably one of the worst interview experiences I have ever had - incredibly disorganized and unprofessional experience. It was clear from the intial interview that they were desperate to fill the position, and made this clear during the process. The sole reason I declined the offer is because of the reviews posted on Glassdoor - I would have been miserable there.

Marketing Interview

Marketing
San Bruno, CA

The process took 2 months - interviewed at Stella & Dot in December 2011.

Interview Details – I had 4 rounds of in-person interviews (in total spoke with probably 7 people individually for 30 min) over a 5 week period,and reviewed their existing program to provide some thoughts for improvement. For the most part, everyone was very nice and the interviews weren't very stressful.
I was told I'd hear back the week between Christmas and New Year's. I heard nothing, so a week later, I emailed the hiring manager and recruiter. I never got a response and I have heard their new candidate started. All in all, I felt that this experience was extremely disorganized, and after 4 rounds would expect someone to at least tell me that they'd gone another direction. I completely understand choosing another candidate, but leaving me hanging is disrespectful.

Human Resources Generalist Interview

Human Resources Generalist
San Bruno, CA

I applied online and the process took 1 week - interviewed at Stella & Dot in October 2011.

Interview Details – The interview process itself was fine. I found the follow-up communication woefully inadequate and disrespectful. This has been a trend I have seen throughout my job search. It would be most appreciated if recruiters could take the 2 minutes out of their day to let the candidate know they are no longer under consideration.
