    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Ghirardelli Chocolate (San Leandro, CA) in May 2015.

    Interview

    Very low key, easy, and fun. Instead of attacking you with hard questions, they really wanted to get to know you. By interviewing in this style you can get a better feel for the company and they can better understand how you will fit into the company.

    Interview

    I was referred by my friend who was hired at the agency, and they asked me if I can do the job and I was told to attend the interview and orientation the next day. I got the job right away without any interview and completing the onboarding application online the next day. It was pretty easy.

    Merchandiser Interview

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Ghirardelli Chocolate.

    Interview

    I had a brief phone interview with the district manager, which was mostly him explaining the job and requirements to me as well as some questions about my background and experience. I was told the next step would be an in person interview. About a week and a half later I was scheduled for an in person interview. I met with two managers and thought it went really well. They were both very friendly and spoke positively to me about the position and even went in detail about the pay and schedule (without me asking). I was really expecting to receive an offer but they gave me a date to expect to hear back by and I never heard anything else from them.

    I was pretty disappointed because it sounded like a job I would really enjoy doing, would really fit my interests and background and sounded like a good company to work for. But in the end I guess it was probably for the best because I even tried to follow up with them and was completely ignored. Never received a yes, no, we're still deciding, nothing. Personally I think it's rude and unprofessional business practice to completely ignore applicants after taking their time, leading them on in multiple interviews as if you're interested in hiring them, then completely ignoring them, not even responding to calls or emails to let them know your decision. So, it probably wouldn't have been a good company to work for and maybe I dodged a bullet.

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at Ghirardelli Chocolate (San Leandro, CA) in February 2013.

    Interview

    The process started with a Phone Interview with HR after that I went on site and interview with Maintenance Manager as well as a few other Managers. Overall nice people very straight forward I got the sense that it would be a nice place to work. They want a more seasoned Maintenance Mechanic and my experience was a little on the light side for what they need.
