    Retail Merchandiser - Part Time Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Chula Vista, CA
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Hallmark (Chula Vista, CA) in March 2016.

    Interview

    Received an email with several 15 minute phone interview time options to select. I selected 8:00am and immediately received an email confirming the interview time. I received the call from the interviewer promptly at 8:00am.

    Interview Questions

    • Interviewer asked me to describe what I understood the position entailed. Other questions she asked included if I had my own transportation, could I work a flexible schedule, can I lift up to 50lbs, if offered the position did I have any upcoming work schedule conflicts. She also asked if I had any prior retail experience.   1 Answer

    Negotiation

    Pay rate explained was $10.75. I asked if there were opportunities for increases and was told it would be based on experience and performance. Based on some of the other reviews, I think I could have possibly negotiated but since my retail experience is minimal to none and I am not relying on this job as a sole source of income I did not ask for more. However, when I received the job offer I was told the rate would be $11.00 per hour.

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Hallmark in March 2016.

    Interview

    applied online, was emailed about an interview a few weeks later. I was one of the first people they interviewed, so after the interview it took about two weeks for them to get offers out. The whole process took about a month.

    The recruiter was very friendly, and easy to talk to. They don't throw out many (if any) hardball questions. (Very few scenarios like "tell me a time when...") Mostly, it seemed like they wanted to know about who I am as a person and designer, and more about what my process and inspiration look like.

    Interview Questions

    • Describe the beginning stages of your creative process. Do you focus more on research, sketching, or a mixture of both?   Answer Question
    • What is your source of creative inspiration?   Answer Question

    Field Merchandiser Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    No Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Hallmark in March 2016.

    Interview

    I applied online and got and email directly from recruitment to set up a phone interview the next day. The interview was pretty simple and to the point, only lasted about 15 minutes. She basically read off the job description and asked me to briefly repeat it back (so take notes or have the job description right out in front of you). She then went on to ask if I can meet all of the requirements that the job entails (source of transportation, wi-fi, can lift 50 pounds, etc.). I was told I would get an email response in 3 to 5 business days so I still don't know if I got the job yet!
