I interviewed at Helen of Troy

Interview

Video response interview and then a panel interview. They asked questions about my background and experience. I answered and that was it. Nothing too hard. However, it does make you feel like you are in the hot seat with 3 interviews asking question at once

The interview process went well until I met with the General Counsel. Based on the job description that was put out there and the other employers that I met with, the GC was not on the same page and had an entirely different perspective on the role and type of candidate they were looking for.

The interview process was quick and friendly. I was asked to submit a video interview through HireVue. This was my first time using it and it was simple. After that I was asked to do an interview with the hiring manager. Was then pushed on the Director of Talent Acquisition and the Chief People Officer.

The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Helen of Troy

Interview

I have mixed feelings, because the people with whom I would have worked were absolutely delightful, but the overall experience was depressing. I was contacted by HR literally 5 months after I applied. I was told they’d gone through the full hiring process with other candidates who didn’t work out, and OH how I wish I’d read these interview reviews earlier, because I’m pretty certain both of the previous copywriter candidates left reviews below that would have been helpful. HR was…fine, but throughout the process she seemed disorganized, was not aware of which of the 6 required interviews I’d completed, and where we even were in the process. I ultimately received a verbal offer from the hiring manager after interviewing with the team (which was AWESOME) and I was beyond ecstatic. HR called to discuss salary and we agreed upon a number—one we’d agreed to on multiple previous occasions throughout the month-long process. When I received the written offer a few days later, it listed an out-of-nowhere lowball salary 15k off the number we had agreed to. At least, I think it did, because before she sent it to me she said it was company policy to read it aloud via phone. When she read the salary portion, she paused—clearly to hear my reaction. When I told her this was not what we’d agreed to, she told me there was a signing bonus (which is just a 1-time boost) + other bonuses (based on company performance and not guaranteed) available, and that the company was expanding quickly so if I got promoted, I might be closer to the agreed-upon salary. Huh? That’s not how it works. I don’t live in Texas where the company is headquartered; I live in California and the salary offered was not enough to even scrape by here, so I declined it. Like other candidates below, it was also initially implied that there was some opportunity for remote work, though it turns out it’s a 100% in-office position in Irvine. I feel misled and manipulated, and I don’t understand what they get out of stringing candidates along. It’s weird. I also wasted 2 vacation days to complete their interviews. All in all, this entire endeavor was for nothing and left me with a negative view of the company.

I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Helen of Troy (Memphis, TN) in Sep 2021

Interview

Initial interview was a virtual recorded one. 2nd was an interview with the hiring manager. It’s very frustrating when you’re being told that you would be a great fit for the position and had a great interview only to receive a denial nearly three weeks later. Please be upfront with interviewees and don’t give false hope. This is extremely frustrating and unprofessional.

Kudos to our Mississippi team for its volunteer work with Heartland Hands Food Pantry this summer. Since June, Helen of Troy associates from Olive Branch, Southaven, and Horn Lake locations have spent every Tuesday and Thursday pitching in at Heartland Hands. The team packs and loads boxes of food for those in need throughout DeSoto County, MS. In July, the team accumulated over 200 volunteer hours. 💪 It looks like they've enjoyed every minute of their time at Heartland Hands.😀 Great job team!
