    Associate Creative Director Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at L.L. Bean in January 2014.

    Interview

    I was contacted by email at first. Then, there was a fairly lengthy game of phone tag with an HR coordinator to schedule a phone interview with another HR specialist, presumably a recruiter. After the call was scheduled, there was some more rescheduling necessary due to the holidays. Eventually, the recruiter called and we had a very pleasant chat, after which the recruiter suggests that my ext step would be to talk to the hiring manager/creative director. That never happened.

    Interview Questions

    • As with most calls I get from recruiters, I find that their questions would have been easily answered if they read my resume. I suppose this is a way for them to gauge my presentation skills so I'm happy to talk about my experience--perhaps too happy. There was some discussion about salary which I always find difficult because we're always told not to bring up salary and the first to cite a number loses.   Answer Question

Was told at the interview that they would notify me in a 3 or so weeks if I was to make it to the second round interview with the hiring manager.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at L.L. Bean (Freeport, ME) in May 2008.

    Interview

    The interview process was long and painful because there were so many applicants for the internally posted position. Between each segment of the interview process there were long waits with no communication and I found that to be frustrating. The panel that interviewed me for the position were very intimidating. After the last interview I waited for three weeks before hearing anything about the position.

    Interview

    Long and arduous, be committed to staying in contact with your hiring manager. Oftentimes, I was left days and weeks without knowing where we were in the process. Be prepared to talk about non-professional things during your panel interviews.

    Cashier Interview

    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    The process took 1 day. I interviewed at L.L. Bean (Dedham, MA) in June 2009.

    Interview

    The interview took place at a hotel, as the store had not yet opened. I spoke with one woman, who was nice, but I think I was thrown off guard a little bit by her questions. They were typical, I suppose, but I've usually been offered jobs without long interviews. She asked things like "why would you be good for this job?" and "when was a time you set a goal and reached it?"
