    Stock Interview

    Anonymous Employee in New York, NY
    Accepted Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Eataly (New York, NY).

    Interview

    I wanted to stock but they stuck me as a cashier, where I spent four years without a proper promotion. Rate Pay was NOT discussed. HR assumed that I discussed it with the manager. I interviewed with HR initially then the cash manager. Easy questions were asked, as they let anyone in, even felons.They wanted me to go full time, but could not since I had a full time job elsewhere.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. I interviewed at Eataly.

    Interview

    Open call interview process. The Chicago location was just opening so it was a relatively easy process and very quick. Entered into one of their offices and they asked me general questions about myself, some pertaining to work and experience. Entire interview lasted about 5-10 minutes and I was notified within the week that I got the job.

    Junior Graphic Designer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in New York, NY
    Declined Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Eataly (New York, NY).

    Interview

    I applied for the job online. Within about a week I got a phone call to set up an interview. I attended the first interview with the senior graphic designer and the current junior graphic designer along with a manager from the sales floor. The interview went well. I was asked to show my portfolio and talk about past experiences. A little after a week I was called for a second interview. The second interview required that I design three pieces related to the position with the given graphics and information. I designed the three pieces and printed them out (from my own budget.) The second interview contained the same three people (perhaps the sales rep changed) in addition to two more managers. One manager have a horrible impression, he hardly ever made eye contact with me even when he was the one to ask the question. He often stared away from the table as if he didn't want to be there and he should be someplace else. The second interview seemed to go well. I got a phone call from the HR rep about salary and additional details regarding the position. The position required working Saturdays and was offering $29K. When the HR rep asked if that salary was okay with me, I politely answered that I would be open to negotiating a fair salary. She quickly responded that it was the industry standard for entry level graphic designers. $29K is not enough to pay rent and other expenses, so I doubt that the industry standard for a college educated graphic designer is that low, and in fact it is not after much research. I never heard back from Eatly, not even for them to tell me they went with a different candidate.

    To this day, I'm not even sure if that conversation with the HR rep was a job offer. She gave me many details on the job, but never called me back.
