    PT Human Resources Specialist Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    No Offer
    Negative Experience

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Bloomingdale's.

    Interview

    Applied for the position and before the day ended I was sent an interview invite. I chose the date and time that I wanted to attend the group interview. I received confirmation of the invite. I took the day off from my job to attend this interview. When I walked in, the HR Associate explained to me that the position was filled a month ago, and the vendor that is used to process their postings hasn't been able to remove it. When I expressed why wasn't I contacted, she explained we give everyone the chance to come in to interview for other available positions...I was extremely disappointing and upset. What a trifling way to handle the customers interested in working for them! Luckily I seen this happened to someone else before so I wasn't entirely shocked.

    Quick group interview that lasted about 30 minutes, all were applying for different positions. This is conducted by hiring managers from the HR team. They conduct a second round interview if they are interested in moving forward. That interview was also quick and light. They made it a very easy process and a nonintimidating environment.
