    Applied via the website and was contacted by a Store Manager, who said she was waiting to hear confirmation from the District Manager.

    Assistant Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at DAVIDsTEA in January 2017.

    Interview

    The initial interview with the store manager was excellent. Even chatted with some of the store staff. Felt really positive going into the second interview with a district manager. This interview did not go as well, getting the vibe this person didn't like me as much as the others did. Was promised a follow up within a week. Sent a follow up email after hearing nothing for a week and a half, and never heard a response from them. If they had actually told me I didn't get the job I would have been understanding. I was just so disappointed to hear no response after a great interview process. Continue to be a fan of the product though. Please communicate with applicants!

    Assistant Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Declined Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at DAVIDsTEA in April 2017.

    Interview

    A phone screening followed by an one to one interview. I only went through the phone interview and I refused to go through further, because this company raised a lot of red flags. It was apparent during the interview that the company has high turnover and my interviewer mentioned, that he only got the manager job less than two months ago when the previous manager left, whom interviewed him for the assistant manager position role. Furthermore, there was concern about salary when he mentioned they couldn't even meet the current manager salary, that I received from my current employer. Moreover, the interviewer was very new to the job and it clearly showed since, the questions asked had nothing to do with the job. I found it also worrying that there was no clear answer about career development, work retention or turnover, and even about quotas since this is not a popular franchise and the store is often empty. I was very unclear how they made ends meet, and judging by the fact, that they immediately put an inexperienced person in a store manager position is not a good sign and clearly shows a desperation to fill management roles. Additionally, my interviewer was late for the interview and called from a private number which, is very strange for a phone interview and very unprofessional.

    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at DAVIDsTEA in May 2018.

    Interview

    Applied through website and was swiftly contacted by Market Manager for interview. I then had phone interviews with District Manager, followed by US HR Manager and US Director. This was one of the hardest interviews I had ever had, but I do feel the managers care about hiring the best people that they can given the freedom they give us to run our own small business.

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at DAVIDsTEA (Palo Alto, CA) in September 2015.

    Interview

    The interview was done in the location where everyone can hear your interview and there was no privacy. For such a position normally you are taken to the office or out of the premises. Pass all interviews, you get 3. But to hear if I got the position it too 4 weeks with an email. It was so informal and strange. I knew I had a great interview and was more then qualified.
