    Customer Service Representative Interview

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

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Dylan's Candy BAR (New York, NY).

    Interview

    Negative review only because I never received any update on my application even though during the interview, I was told my skills and experience completely matched what they were looking for and that I was the only one interviewing for the position. Found out through LinkedIn that someone else filled the position. It is just rude and unprofessional not to update candidates - especially if I was told to be the only one. Plus, the interviewers have tenure as managers so I don't see why they would be uncomfortable rejecting people. I was a fan of Dylans before I interviewed but this experience really hurts my impression of the brand.

    Interview Questions

    • They only asked two questions before talking about themselves and the office: 1) Can you tell me a little about yourself and your experience? 2) What attracted you to Dylans?   Answer Question

    I applied in-person. I interviewed at Dylan's Candy BAR.

    Interview

    I went during an open house. Interview was quick, only 10 questions, pretty easy questions. The interview was less than 30 mins and I didn't get drug tested. The place seems awesome, it looked like willy wonka land inside!

    Counter Associate Interview

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at Dylan's Candy BAR (Chicago, IL) in April 2016.

    Interview

    The interview was done by 2 DCB managers, a general store manager and a cafe manager. Overall they were very thorough. Reading from a series of company provided questions, they were vague but offered a lot of opportunity for in depth stories and conversations about my previous work experience/stories.

    I had a friend and current employee(s) referral so I first did a brief phone interview and was then told that by the manager on the phone that the fastest, most efficient application process was to come into the store and do it in person.
    I came in the following day where I filled out a brief application and immediate was interviewed by the 2 managers (as stated above) once that happened I was actually offered my position and informed that there was, just by chance, a training session for new employees beginning upstairs momentarily if I was able to stay and wanted to complete my paid-employee training (or I could wait another week).

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Dylan's Candy BAR.

    Interview

    Went to a hiring event, filled out an application, sat down with a human resource rep for a first interview, simple and cutesy kind of questions. Then had a second interview with the store manager and basically answered the same questions again but got to make another good impression. Got a call that night to schedule an orientation for the following week.

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Dylan's Candy BAR (Chicago, IL) in March 2015.

    Interview

    Sent in my email and got a call from a Stephen McGorry like two weeks later. Went in for an interview and got an email for orientation. The orientation was alright. We got to learn a lot about Dylan and her great idea for a candy store but other than that it wasn't very hard.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Dylan's Candy BAR (New York, NY) in February 2015.

    Interview

    A month or two after applying I received an emailing inviting me to come in to an open interview. It was early in the morning and the kept us waiting outside even though the tempter was in the negatives. Once we had finally gotten inside we all filled out an application & waited to be called by one of the interviewers. He asked very basic interview questions, nothing difficult at all. Some people were sent home after the interview, but, when it come to me I was told to wait to be interviewed by the sales manager. The same exact questions were asked & I was told I would hear from them in a week.

    A week went by & I was failed for another interview with the store manager. It was a quick interview just to clarify availability & ask some simple questions. I received the call that I got the job the very next business day.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at Dylan's Candy BAR (New York, NY).

    Interview

    Found it through craigslist, went to an open interview (there were a lot of people there), had a quick face-to-face interview with a manager, called for a second interview which was an audition in front of the managers (you could sing, dance, act, show paintings/drawings) which i believe was a way to show what you can contribute to the company and if you have the right [out-going/fun] personality for working there
