    ECommerce Product Manager Interview

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

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Godiva Chocolatier (New York, NY) in February 2017.

    Interview

    Long, drawn out and involved interview process, consisting of a phone screening and two in-person interviews followed up by four phone interviews with various members of the team and a small project. After all of that effort and time, I didn't receive any personalized feedback notifying me that I hadn't gotten the job - just a template letter 2+ months later letting me know that after reviewing my credentials they regret to inform me that I'm not a match. Felt disrespectful, given that I'd spent so much time in contact with them, to not even have the courtesy of a personal call or email notifying me of their decision. Really poor experience.

    Part Time Chocolatier Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Toledo, OH
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took a week. I interviewed at Godiva Chocolatier (Toledo, OH) in January 2017.

    Interview

    The interview process was pretty easy- but different than other companies. Usually you just go through an interview with store managers. However, with Godiva you go through 1-2 interviews with the store managers, and than an interview with the District Manager. All 3 of my interviews were over the phone.

    Interview Questions

    • A couple questions were about previous jobs, what you learned there, why did you leave...ect. All the normal interview questions. A few out of the ordinary questions were what was one thing you're proud of that you've accomplished? Describe to me your favorite meal, and how you feel when you're presented with that meal without talking about taste. (This was super weird.)   1 Answer

    Negotiation

    There was no negotiation, I revived a phone call the day of my last interview that was a job offer with a firm pay rate.

    Marketing Manager Interview

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

    Application

    The process took 7 weeks. I interviewed at Godiva Chocolatier (New York, NY).

    Interview

    had 8 interviews in total. 1 phone interview, 1 in-office interview with 3 people and then they had me back in for a final interview with 4 more people. Overall, process took over a month with a lot of stops and starts. After my final interview, I was told I would hear back in a few days. 3 weeks passed by and I heard nothing. I followed up a few times, and didn't hear anything. Followed up one last time and then finally got a response saying they went with someone else. Extremely unprofessional to not at least tell someone No after spending 8+ hours interviewing them. I declined another job offer because I wanted to continue with the interview process with Godiva. Bad move. In the end, they mentioned I was a great candidate but ultimately they wanted someone with a background in confectionary goods. I'm fine with a 'No' - but why take me thru so many interviews if you were looking for a different background? Several interviewers even asked me why I would want to work at Godiva and warned me that the processes and communication were frustrating because of it's more start-up culture. I actually thought the lack of response following my interviews was a part of the process - some sort of test in regards to my level of patience! hah. Oh well - everything happens for a reason! If you interview here, just be wary about being taken for a ride!

    Interview Questions

    • Typical questions, walk me thru your resume, etc. Some specific questions about 'what would you do in certain situations/with difficult people, etc' Lots of questions about how comfortable you are with ambiguity and cultures with not a lot of direction/start-up vibes   Answer Question

    Sales Associate Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Burlington, MA
    Accepted Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took a week. I interviewed at Godiva Chocolatier (Burlington, MA).

    Interview

    Very laid back and casual questions. I was hired on the spot. However, they never got back to me about a start date. When I called a few weeks later, they acted like they had been trying to get in touch with me, which I don't buy for a second. I don't know what went wrong, but it was a waste of my time and I don't appreciate being lied to.

    Neutral Experience

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Godiva Chocolatier (New York, NY).

    Interview

    Group Interview where they asked several questions. It seemed to be very first impression based rather than a proper interview. They hire multiple people at a time. Most likely because the turnover rate is so high, & they barely even glanced at our resumes.

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took a week. I interviewed at Godiva Chocolatier (San Francisco, CA) in June 2016.

    Interview

    Best interview I've ever had. My Manager aka my recruiter was awesome and friendly. Felt like I knew her for years before the interview had taken place. I found out abt the job fair last minute, didn't even have my resume on my person and I got hired on the spot. The interview lasted about an hour. This company is incredible, very inviting and encouraging to newcomers.
