    I applied through other source. I interviewed at Kendra Scott.

    Interview

    It was a lengthy interview process. From the time I submitted my resume to actually finding out I got the position was over a two-month span. The interview consisted of behavioral and situational questions. Be prepared to speak to your experience and how you would handle a certain situation.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Kendra Scott (Wichita, KS) in March 2018.

    Interview

    I applied and an HR Person had screened me told me I was going to interview with the Area Retail Manager by Skype, since it was a new store at the time. The Interviewer was running a little behind because she had another in-person interview before me, but she let me know asap.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Kendra Scott in March 2018.

    Interview

    Have to be pretty and look like you come from a sorority to get hired. Networking events don't seem right for hiring..the same basic questions are asked to everyone no matter what position you are applying to. You don't have an opportunity to discuss your experiences and current/past job experiences with any of them. Recruiters/Management didn't seem very engaged in wanting to know about you, it seemed like you were judged from the moment you walk in on whether you "look the part" or not. I have a lot of retail management experience and wanted the opportunity to work for Kendra Scott as it is a new store but nobody cared to really interview and get to know us at the event. For me it was not professional and very laid back like I was applying for a basic minimum wage 1st job.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at Kendra Scott in April 2019.

    Interview

    The interview process was fine honestly everything was highly communicated and I have extensive background and knowledge and what they wanted in a candidate. The issue was when we FaceTimed we FaceTimed for about an hour but I had read her reviews and I have come to conclusion that this place is for people who look like they’ve come out of a sorority. I’m a brunette Hispanic looking female so obviously I was not what they were looking for. I even went through their Instagram and they hire no minorities whatsoever. Don’t waste your time. I was highly offended and then to make matters worse when I emailed a follow up I never got a response after she told me we’d set up a date to meet with the store manager, I decided to call and she told me that “oh we picked another candidate but thank you for your time” and I’ve looked online and come to find out they’re still hiring! It sucks that not everyone looks like a Barbie sorority girl but that shouldn’t matter isn’t Kendra Scott all about hiring beyond your resume? The store manager I interacted with gave a very horrible representation of what the company is supposed to stand for.

    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Kendra Scott (Austin, TX) in September 2015.

    Interview

    Really long interview process, I had 3 30-45min phone interviews, the second round consisted in 4 30 minutes interviews in person at the office located on South Congress with different members of the team. The team is really nice but the commitment required for the interview process is unnecessarily long and complicated since they pretty much all ask for the same questions. I wish them the best, The company is growing fast and the upcoming projects are really interesting. I really hoped to get that job.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Kendra Scott (Austin, TX) in July 2017.

    Interview

    The first stage of the hiring process takes place when they call you after you submit your application. They will ask you three questions 1) What experience do you have from past jobs
    ? 2) Name a time you adapted to a new situation at a job? I can't remember the other one but it's super easy. Right after answering the questions they'll ask you to come in for an orientation. During this stage they'll do a group interview. They will have 6-8 people in a conference room where they'll ask a question and go around in a circle taking the responses. These questions are really easy. Name a time you committed an error at work and describe how you fixed it. Name a situation where you're boss treated you unfairly. Why do you want to work here?

    Inventory Control Interview

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Kendra Scott in January 2016.

    Interview

    I spoke with a talent manager who took my information and then passed it on. I then spoke with the manager that I would have been working with. It was pretty casual and straight forward so I thought for sure I would make it to the next round. I was pretty disappointed, I guess I had to much experience? They seem to hire younger sorority type girls with no experience and don't seem to have much diversity. Its to bad because I really wanted to be apart of the company, I have experience working with fashion jewelry.

    Inventory Control Analyst Interview

    Negative Experience

    Interview

    I submitted a thoughtfully written resume and cover letter outlining how my skills and accomplishments directly translated / contributed to the needs of the position. The company wasted NO TIME in reviewing my qualifications. About three hours after I submitted my application, I got a rejection email indicating that my materials had been "carefully considered". The Kendra Scott organization displayed very poor, cursory, shabby treatment in response to genuine effort.

    Interview

    Pretty straightforward. It was a phone interview and then a Skype call. I was interviewing for the ecommerce team. They didn’t ask anything too tricky, the questions were all very straight forward. I think they just wanted to see you had done the research and the work.
