    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at American Girl (San Francisco, CA) in April 2017.

    Interview

    Interviewed for a management role and I had 4 different interviews altogether. First was the HR Mgr, second the Asst Store Mgr, third the Store Mgr and finally a Region level manager. A total of 3 weeks from initial to offer. Great interview questions from all the leaders I met with. Very friendly, strong leadership attributes and very pleasant relaxed interview process.

    Interview Questions

    • Questions are mostly situational and behavior based. They want to know how you can lead a team, develop teams and get them to their next step, customer centric all revolving around leadership competencies. It was very conversational and they all wanted to know who I was a leader and my abilities I would bring to the company. For new leaders, this would be deemed a difficult type of interview but for those seasoned with experience with leadership skills this was easy   Answer Question

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at American Girl (Orlando, FL) in March 2017.

    Interview

    I received an e-mail the day after I applied to contact the Employment Manager during the predetermined times that were listed if I was still interested in the position. When I contacted the Employment Manager she asked a few preliminary questions about my availability and if I were willing to consent to a drug test if I were hired. She told me that she would follow up with me within a few days. She called back within minutes to arrange an interview at the store.
    When I was interviewed at the store I noticed that the questions that were asked during the interview in person were not relevant to the position that I applied for.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at American Girl (Bloomington, MN) in September 2016.

    Interview

    I received a call only hours after applying and scheduled an interview. Easiest interview I've ever had. I met with the Bistro manager and he literally spent 20 minutes talking about Mattel, what it's like to work there and all the positions they have open. I then got a 10 minute tour of the place. I was asked zero interview questions. He only wanted to know how many hours I wanted and when I was available. In the end I was offered to work as both a server some days and dessert counter others and I took both simply because the hours were very little and I needed at least 30 per week. The server position had not been posted yet so I had to wait until it was available to fill out online. One week after the interview I had an appointment with H.R. to begin paperwork.
