    IT Project Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Dunkin' Brands in July 2017.

    Interview

    Manager that interviewed me was unable to manage the interview. She was half an hour late for starters. Then pulled out of the interview by subordinate for 5 minutes. Talked for about 20 minutes over a 60 minute block of time. Didn't seem to have read my resume. I think she hustled me out when she determined I couldn't be dominated easily. Complete waste of time. Very unprofessional.

    Project Manager IT Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Canton, MA
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Dunkin' Brands (Canton, MA) in June 2014.

    Interview

    The process took nearly two months. It started out with a writing test and then a 1:1 phone interview with the hiring manager. It then went on to a 1:1 phone interview with the HR point of contact. Next, I had to do a recorded video interview. Next a personality test that consisted of 12 pages with 30 questions per page. This was followed by an IQ test. IQ and Personality test are part of your interview score and it is illegal according to the supreme court to do so as it is considered a discriminatory practice.After a few weeks, I had a face to face in Canton, MA. The hiring manager messed up my interview schedule and admitted to me she had only ever managed 3 projects vs. my 8-32 per quarter. She said I had too much Fortune 500 experience. It took them 1.5 weeks to get back to me to tell me that I was too big of a fish and would not be able to swim in a little pond, which was extremely short sighted and insulting. I was told I was the top candidate throughout this entire process. It took them two months to figure out they did not want their top candidate. Enough said.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    Interview

    7 long interviews over the phone with the last 3 in person in Boston, Mass. Nothing out of the ordinary, just going through the chain of command bottom-up, including staff in similar position in other countries. Also attended one of Dunkin International conferences to "test-drive" the experience of working in DBI prior to giving 2-week notice to the previous employer.

    Field Ops Manager (Corporate) Interview

    Anonymous Employee in New Brunswick, NJ
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Dunkin' Brands (New Brunswick, NJ) in January 2009.

    Interview

    The process started via phone interview with the recruiter then Human Resource Manager. The people were very supportive and helpful, but, the process between interviews took several weeks. Then in person interviews occurred with my direct supervisor and his boss and then another peer before a hiring decision was made. The overall process took several months, this process also included speaking to current employees and visiting restaurants which really was a big help in understanding the job I would be doing. Everyone was so friendly, for me that made up for the long interviewing process.

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Dunkin' Brands.

    Interview

    After applying and personality assessment I was contacted via email for a phone interview with Talent Acquisition, Onsite interview (2 hours-4 people), Completed a Case Study, Second Onsite Interview (2 hours - 4 people). Seemed like a personality test the whole time. Had to keep following up, Recruiting was a little disorganized. Seemed like a good environment but process needs streamlining. After all that it was filled "internally"....

    Had to do a HireVue video, then was scheduled to do a phone interview. They ended up hiring a full-time employee so they no longer needed an intern. However, if I had done the phone interview and moved onto the next round, it would have been in person.

    There was the HireView stage, then an in person interview which lasted about 1 hour, took about 2 months from application to being hired. Nice people to interview with. A little unorganized process. It was not a challenging interview.
