Interview

It was a group interview and they take turns asking your basic interview questions - experience, motivation, strengths. Then, they have you work together as a group to put up a tent without instructions. It's not so much about actually being able to put up the tent as it is working with other people.

Interview Questions
  • Give me a sales pitch on an item of your choosing (they give you a few choices of clothes, gear, etc)

Way intense interview for a part time retail job. I don't know what they want because they emailed me that other candidates were more qualified. This was a part time job for the holidays

I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at L.L. Bean (Cranston, RI) in Aug 2020

Interview

The interview process was very repetitive. I felt like I was answering the same questions throughout all three interviews, such as "why do you want to work for L.L. Bean?" " Why retail?" "What kind of person are you?". Only got rejected for not having retail experience, and was offered a job as a sales associate. I have an MBA so this position was already a little below what I was looking for, definitely do not need retail experience for my future career goals.

Interview Questions
  • How do you plan to manage conversations/having authority over those older than you?
  • What kind of experience do you have working with a team?

Interview

The interview itself was very professionally conducted, and refreshingly friendly. The glitch came with, at the very beginning, I was told the position had pivoted and the responsibilities changed. We continued with the interview, although I was no longer a strong candidate because I did not have relevant experience. This should have been revealed before the interview started so that I could have prepared and possibly canceled the interview.

Interview Questions
  • How is your day (I don't recall, this was a few years ago)

Interview

Phone screening, followed by an in-person interview with the store manager and the Outdoor Discovery Programs regional manager. I actually applied for the position at one store, was rejected, and then was hired at a lower level to keep me in the loop for the same position which would be opening up at another store a month or so later. L.L.Bean is great at identifying potential and is happy to offer a placeholder position to you until they can give you the job they know you'll excel at.

Interview Questions
  • What strategies might you use to grow participation in the Outdoor Discovery Programs

Interview

Everyone was super helpful and encouraging during the process. I reached out to talent acquisition and they pointed me in the right direction right away. After the I Irish outreach I talked to several employees to find the right fit before even interviewing. Overall a wonderful experience relative the the seemingly stressful process.
