    Assistant Merchandiser Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Dodgeville, WI
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Lands' End (Dodgeville, WI) in October 2014.

    Interview

    Met with 1 women from HR and 4 people from various Merchandising Departments. All of the questions were very straight forward. They were all very nice. I felt like I was able to have a conversation with them, not simply back and forth Q&A. Most common question was to ask about my financial experience.

    Interview Questions

    • The only question I hadn't prepared for ahead of time was, "What brand/company do you see as ahead of the curve?"   Answer Question

    Assistant Merchant Interview

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Lands' End.

    Interview

    I applied for an Assistant Merchant position. There were two initial phone interviews and then they scheduled my onsite visit. The second phone call I had was with a DMM and the interviewer was very rude; additionally several of the questions did not make much sense. I was initially told the onsite visit would be 2 hours long, upon getting my itinerary it was 3 1/2! The day before my onsite interview they cancelled and told me that they would re-schedule. Then I received an email that before they re-scheduled my onsite they wanted me to do another phone interview. That phone call was more pleasant than the one with the DMM. Afterward I expected that my onsite would be scheduled but I got 2 more emails saying that it would have been two additional phone interviews before they would re-schedule my onsite visit. I withdrew my application; seemed like a silly amount of interviews for an entry level position.

    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Lands' End.

    Interview

    I was first contacted by a recruiter for Lands End after submitting my application and portfolio online. An initial phone interview was set up where I was asked the standard interview questions and questions about some of the documents in my online portfolio. Was told I'd receive a word back in a week as I was the first candidate to interview. I didn't hear word back until a month later when I tried to contact the interviewer and I then recieved a standard email from the company informing me that I didn't recieve the job. Would have appreciated the expected correspondence informing me that I had not made it to the next round of interviews.

    Inventory Analyst Interview

    Interview

    I've been at this company for a long time. Each time I submitted my resume for newly posted positions, our Employee Service Department never once acknowledged my job interest; not a follow-up email or call....nothing. Very disappointing.
