    I applied through other source. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Bloomingdale's (Philadelphia, PA) in February 2017.

    Interview

    Getting an interview was the easy part. Getting hired was a bust because I am pregnant. However, I received nasty looks as if my belly was permanently attached to my body. Whatever!

    Beauty Advisor Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Costa Mesa, CA
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Bloomingdale's (Costa Mesa, CA) in January 2018.

    Interview

    I received an email shortly after applying online to schedule an interview. On the day of the interview I arrived 10 minutes early and was immediately greeted by the HR front office assistant. Over 20 minutes go by before anyone came out to greet me, the interviewer seemed frantic and I overheard her say to the office assistant that she had to cancel her call to see me. This showed me just how disorganized and unprepared they were, even though this interview was booked a week prior. So, the interviewer came out over 10 minutes passed my interview time and took me into a small file cabinet room. The interview lasted a whopping 20 minutes and she only asked me few, short questions that barely allowed me to showcase my strengths or personality. The interviewer spent a majority of the time talking about how unqualified I was and really made it feel as if I was wasting her time completely. She had asked if I had any interest in any other departments since I was unqualified for the Cosmetic Departments expectations, even though I have been in the beauty industry for almost 10 years in various roles.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Bloomingdale's.

    Interview

    The first interview was over the phone and I noticed I was put on speaker (which I totally dislike because you cannot hear the person as clear as possible), but overall: it was okay. The interviewer asked few generic questions. The first interview lasted around 15-20 minutes.

    Interview

    It was a group interview with about four other individuals, all for different positions within the building. I liked it... it was more laid back and casual, and the interviewers ensured that everyone had a voice and an opportunity to answer their questions.
