    Office Assistant Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Plainfield, IN
    Declined Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Helzberg Diamonds (Plainfield, IN) in September 2015.

    Interview

    Not a real interview. Store manager was inappropriate and sexist. The questions he asked were never based around my experience and career goals but only my physical experience and how he viewed himself. Stopped the interview before feeling more violated. After all said and done I probably only said 2 sentences.

    Easy Interview

    Interview

    Well mannered conversation about my experience in the field of sales. Always keep in mind that you are not the only one being interviewed; You must also try to determine if you would like to work with/for your interviewer. When your in sales always consider the pros and the cons. Some managers know how to put up a good front, but may actually lack the skills or motive to see you advance.

    Sales Associate Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Winston-Salem, NC
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took a week. I interviewed at Helzberg Diamonds (Winston-Salem, NC) in September 2012.

    Interview

    The process was pretty straight forward when dealing with jewelry. There was an initial interview, then a call back. After these are passed and they would like to hire you, there was a long telephone prompt questionnaire where there was only 5 seconds to answer each question. 90% were fast yes and no ones which were worded to try to trip a person up. The final process was the hair follicle drug test.

    Sales Associate Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Denver, CO
    Accepted Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at Helzberg Diamonds (Denver, CO) in January 2016.

    Interview

    I submitted my application in early Dec. followed up. No call back until Mid-January. I have many years of jewelry sales, no need to train other the HD system. This was a bait and switch. After all the interview processes and received a call offering me a job for a office position. Of course, I reluctantly accepted with the notion that sales was also expected. All this was a lie from the beginning, not a good company nor the manager/s are anyone who I respect. They beat you down to the point, everyday I was there, I HATED every second.

    Interview Questions

    • Interview questions are typical, nothing to surprising. But looking back I see their lack of knowledge, low level minded managers   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    No negotiation, not happy with the bait and switch offer.

    Fine Jewelry Sales Associate Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Mesa, AZ

    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Helzberg Diamonds (Mesa, AZ) in April 2016.

    Interview

    Three step interview process followed with a background check. I was contacted via e-mail by a local store manager who found my profile on 'INDEED'. She requested I complete the online assessment and at that point scheduled my interview. Once you 'pass' the 1st interview you move on to the 2nd interview with another store manager. The 3rd interview is with the Regional Manager. If you make it through all 3 and pass the background check an offer if formally made by 'your' store manager.

    Sales Associate/Key Holder Interview

    Anonymous Employee in King of Prussia, PA
    Accepted Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Helzberg Diamonds (King of Prussia, PA) in January 2011.

    Interview

    Lengthy and required hair analysis. Was required to go to multiple locations to meet with a miriad of management people. The interviews seemed professional and lead you to believe there was money to be made, but as with all female driven industries it's not there. This job would be a stepping stone into sales, but is basically a glorified retail position.

    Interview Questions

    • Standard sales questions. Nothing innovative or outsatnding   1 Answer

    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Helzberg Diamonds (Aurora, CO) in January 2013.

    Interview

    I had a couple of interviews, one with regional manager and another one with store manager. I was told that I could potentially make $20,000 just on commission alone. However, months after I started I realized it's almost impossible to make that much of commission in any of the Colorado stores.

    Sales Associate/Key Holder Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Thousand Oaks, CA
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took a week. I interviewed at Helzberg Diamonds (Thousand Oaks, CA) in June 2011.

    Interview

    The biggest hurtle is passing credit and the integrity test. This company is 90% about loss prevention. So once a manager is interested in you they get you to pass that stuff otherwise don't want to bother interviewing you. Only about 10% of applicants pass both. Then you interview with the manager. No trick questions. From there it's about whether you'll fit in and whether customers will like you.
