    Application

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at Bloomingdale's (New York, NY) in February 2017.

    Interview

    There were about 3 interviews over the course of a few months, mainly through Skype. Questions were mainly behavioral, along with a few tests (math exam, personality exam, reasoning exam). It seemed like a very challenging interview for a very non-challenging job.

    Human Resources Administrator Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in New York, NY
    No Offer
    Negative Experience

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Bloomingdale's (New York, NY).

    Interview

    I'm convinced the HR Administrator position posted for "a specific location in Northern Virginia" is only a shell posting/legal requirement. Every couple of months, the position will become available. I apply and am later sent an email to book an interview time. I schedule the interview, and a day or two before the interview I am sent an email from an HR Administrator (from that specific location) saying the interview has been cancelled because the position has already been filled. Each time this has happened, the HR Administrator emailing me to cancel the interview is a different person -- presumably the new person who was hired for the role. It's inconsiderate to continuously waste applicants' time by scheduling interviews if you already know who you want for the position.

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Bloomingdale's (San Francisco, CA).

    Interview

    I applied online and got an email the next day to sign up for an interview than the following day I'm off to my interview. That was the pleasant part. Then I get to the HR and I see two women who are conducting interviews and 3 other people waiting to get interviewed. I get called first and the woman was having a hard time pronouncing my name and her tone of voice sounded rude RED FLAG #1. Then she gets up to blow her nose as I'm answering some of her questions RED FLAG#2.Then as the interview was going along this woman was asking/thinking of questions to ask me to see if I would mess up. It was very obvious she was doing that because I can see it in her face RED FLAG#3. Then at the end of the interview she asked if I had any questions and I said yes, so I went to get my notebook because I write my questions down and as I was looking down about to look up I can see that she was rolling her eyes in a ANNOYED/REALLY HURRY UP I DON'T HAVE ALL DAY look to the other women that was walking by in the interview room RED FLAG #4. I was appalled and furious at that point and I knew I didn't get the job. Its like really its just recovery its NOT THAT SERIOUS!!That was the end of that and she was rude and prejudice at the end she didn't even shake my hand or anything. I just got up and left and she left to call the next person.
