Assistant Manager Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate in Cambridge, ON (Canada)
No Offer
Negative Experience
Average Interview

Application

The process took a week. I interviewed at Ardene (Cambridge, ON (Canada)) in December 2013.

Interview

This was probably the worst interview I have ever had. I had two interviewers in the middle on the mall and they both had to read the interview questions off of a books of sheets, it was quite evident they had not interviewed many times in the past. She fired off questions after question, rather than conduct the interview in a conversation style.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3+ weeks. I interviewed at Ardene in March 2016.

    Interview

    Applied online. Received a phone call about a week and a half later.
    Went in for an interview. Seemed to go great. She told me she had a couple more interviews scheduled but she felt I was fit for the job. Even called me the next day to tell me what my schedule would look like.. but then said she had one more interview to do and she'd call me Friday. She didn't end up calling. I called the store and she said I'd get a call on Monday to speak more about the job and about the next step in the interview process. By 5pm Monday I hadn't gotten a call, so I called in to be told that they went with someone else and that if there were ANY openings they wanted me there.
    Then a day later they posted for sales associates.
    Guess they didn't need me that bad.
    Why explain the job in so much detail and get my hopes up just to make me wait a week for nothing?
    Very rude and unprofessional. I wouldn't even work for them if they called me now. Not worth it.

    Interview

    You must apply online. Once you pass the preliminary online process then you will be asked for an interview. The interview will be conducted professionally in the back storage room by the manager. One of the most important questions they ask is about customer service and how to deal with someone caught stealing...

    Assistant Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Ottawa, ON (Canada)
    Declined Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Ardene (Ottawa, ON (Canada)) in September 2016.

    Interview

    The overall interview was easy.. because they interviewed me for a position I didn't even apply for. Applied for assistant manager at one location, but when HR called me for the interview and asked me where I'm located, they told me I was closer to a different location and told me I could have the interview there. So I went there and had my interview for a sales associate position which is easy and has standard interview questions. Didn't realize until I was home and interviewer called and said "the full time associate position is filled, are you interested in part time?" So of course I said no. Honestly peeved by the lack of communication between HR and this location about the positions they were interviewing for.
