    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at J. Jill Group (Quincy, MA) in May 2016.

    Interview

    Interview process was great, very smooth. The company as a whole is geared on growth from within, training and development; which is key. I can tell by meeting the HR Director that this company will do well in the future and only evolve. I will keep my fingers crossed and keep applying.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at J. Jill Group (Quincy, MA) in February 2016.

    Interview

    Long and a waste of time really since what I was told I would be doing was way off the chart with no job description whatsoever.

    I met with various teams and listened to their issues and concerns about their current environment.

    Met with the CIO who said this is a start of something new and you are hear at the right time??

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at J. Jill Group (Quincy, MA) in January 2016.

    Interview

    First step was a telephone interview to discuss my work experience and resume. A week later I was invited to the corporate office to meet with SVP, HR. The interview consisted of a review of my resume along with questions I asked. Two weeks later, I was invited back to meet with a potential colleague and the Senior Director of Talent Mgmt. The meeting with the staff member consisted of basic questions regarding my work style. The meeting with Talent Mgmt was informative and resourceful. She asked me multiple questions regarding my work history and preferred mgmt style. I enjoyed visiting the office and meeting the folks unfortunately they decided not to move forward with my candidacy. I sent thank you letters after each interview and a final thank you when I received word they decided not to move forward. Never received a response from any of the correspondence I sent.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at J. Jill Group (Quincy, MA) in July 2013.

    Interview

    HR or Recruiting person was extremely short with me and spoke over me several times during the phone interview. I had seen some poor reviews here and I sent an email requesting explanation of them from the companies point of view. She would never let me speak through the whole interview. Then hung up on me. Not very profession behavior at all. The salary she quoted was EXTREMELY low for someone with a high level of experience as myself. They want something for nothing.

    Interview Questions

    • I cannot believe the recruiter asked me the most basic questions of where and what I did in my past. She had my resume right in front of her. So did I. LoL   1 Answer

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at J. Jill Group (Quincy, MA) in March 2012.

    Interview

    The interview consisted of an hr interview, a technical phone interview, which consisted of OOD questions, followed by two in-person interviews with the development manager, a senior software engineer and the director of IT. It was an easy technical interview, if you know your core OOD principals, you'll be OK.

    Interview Questions

    Reasons for Declining

    It seems like a great company to work for, but their IT infrastructure is in the process of getting rebuilt. They don't currently have a formal development process, a project plan or even a QA department. They rely on other employees to get their QA done. The people seemed nice, but I rejected the offer because the offer was not what I was looking for and because they were in the process of creating a new infrastructure. It just seemed like it would be a very chaotic place to work in.
