    Social Media and Public Relations Assistant Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Dodgeville, WI
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Lands' End (Dodgeville, WI) in June 2015.

    Interview

    This was not the best interview I have ever been to. First, it was held in the lobby of a building where several people were eating lunch, talking, and walking around. Second, there was one woman interviewing me and she kept looking around while I was speaking. Third, the interviewer did not write down (or even have anything to write with or on) anything I said. I walked out knowing I did not get the job simply because of how the interviewer treated me right off the bat.

    Interview Questions

    • One questions that was asked was, "what companies do you follow on social media and why".   1 Answer

    Finance Interview

    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at Lands' End (Madison, WI) in February 2015.

    Interview

    Interview process started out with phone interview with HR. Though they initially described this interview as going to be quick and informational, it turned out to be a full blown interview with a number of tough questions which took me by surprise. After the phone interview, I heard nothing back for several months until I received another email to schedule a skype interview. Interviewed via skype with two of their finance associates back to back. Both people seemed to ask very similar questions and it felt like I was repeating the first interview over. Got a bad vibe about the company from the interviews. I think the two people I interviewed with combined, had about a year and a half of time with the company, giving me a feeling of high employee turnover.

    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.

    Average Interview

    Application

    The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Lands' End (Dodgeville, WI) in April 2012.

    Interview

    I spent the day interviewing with 5 separate people - 3 in the merchandising department and 2 within employee services. All of them were incredibly friendly and personable. The corporate headquarters are fresh, bright, and open, and everything comes together to reflect how the culture is. They focused their questions on me as a person, things I like to do, where I get my inspiration from, how I analyze things. It was very low pressure, they wanted me to feel comfortable. No surprise questions to put you on the spot. They'd like to see if you are behaviorally a good fit for the company.
