    Art Department Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Hood River, OR
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. I interviewed at Billabong (Hood River, OR) in March 2011.

    Interview

    Never given one,told I wasn't qualified without being given a chance to show my portfolio or given a pathway to what I needed to become qualified.The manager I asked was very snotty about the whole thing,talking down to me because they assumed I was a mindless grunt,not even taking 5 minutes to check out my skillset or background or web portfolio,much of which had been making me a solid income online in my spare time.The person they hired was fresh out of art school and had no work ethic and really didn't have the talent to ever fulfill the work load,quit after a few short months.

    Sales Associate Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Orlando, FL
    No Offer
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Billabong (Orlando, FL) in June 2012.

    Interview

    I applied in stores and was called about a week later. I went in and had an interview with one of the managers, which consisted about talking about what was challenging about your previous jobs, your personal traits, and why you want to work at Billabong. He told me there would be a set of two interviews and that he would call me if I had a second interview. I received a call later that night telling me for a second interview two days later. I went in and this one was more difficult, they basically asked me the same question over and over again reworded differently that made the situation difficult. She told me she would call if I got the job and unfortunately never got a call.
