    Jewelry Cataloger Interview

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Heritage Auctions (Dallas, TX) in May 2017.

    Interview

    *Brief conversation with HR over the phone (very friendly and helpful)

    *online assessment tests (must score a certain percentage to move on to second step)

    *after passing first assessment test you will be given another at home test (mostly personality questions to see how you will fit in with the rest of the staff, be honest, and read these questions carefully. They will know if you are only answering with what sounds like the correct answer. There is no correct answer honestly. But answer honestly to questions like "I have never ever told a lie before"

    *in person assessment tests (basic math that requires you to answer as many as possible before the timer is up). Also a handwriting sample where they ask you to write about a recent good memory.

    *face-to-face interview asking about past experiences in the jewelry field, GIA certifications, good and bad experiences working with past clients. Questions about special skills and working with gemological equipment. Questions about previous employment positions and why they should hire you.

    I met the majority of requirements for the position but lost all interest halfway through the face to face interview after they mentioned salary ($35,000) with zero room for growth (which I figured out on my own). On top of that you could work anywhere from 8:00am to the early next morning if approaching a deadline (which happens quite often apparently). Overall you'd come out making about minimum wage to be quite honest.

    This job is not recommended for someone with a family life. More like a job for singles.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Heritage Auctions (Dallas, TX).

    Interview

    Applied online, exchanged emails, went to location for in person interview. Although I did not receive the job, both HR and hiring manager were very helpful with feedback. It did take a while for them to get back to me, but I suspect they were negotiating with the person who won the job. Positive experience overall.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Heritage Auctions (Dallas, TX) in October 2016.

    Interview

    Very easy. Apply online. Hear back from HR through email or phone. They'll ask you some questions on phone then you do two in person interviews. The first one you talk with HR and you take the Wonderlic test and provide a writing sample of the most recent time you had a good experience with anything. Then you did a numbers association test. Took about 1-2 hours. The second interview is with the department manager. They asks basic questions, nothing too hard.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Heritage Auctions (Dallas, TX) in August 2014.

    Interview

    The interview process was average difficulty. Lengthy, but not extremely difficult. First you interview with recruiter one on one and then take a couple of tests at headquarters and at home. These tests are handwritten and computer based and focus on your skills and personality. Once these tests are complete, you wait until your background and drug tests come out clean and wait for the recruiter to call back with their answer/offer.
