    Associate Brand Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in New York, NY
    Declined Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Lindt & Sprüngli (New York, NY) in March 2017.

    Interview

    One of the best HR teams and companies I've ever had the pleasure interviewing with. The process was very professional and straight forward. I had a telephone interview with HR, followed by a telephone interview with the hiring manager, and completed the process with an in-person interview with each individual I'd be working with in the ABM role. I appreciated how two-sided the process was. They were always mindful of what I wanted and/or needed, and they were very transparent. Unfortunately, timing wasn't right for this offer but I would jump on the next if it were to come up again.

    Project Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    No Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Lindt & Sprüngli in October 2018.

    Interview

    Was contacted by Krystal, the recruiter, from Linkedin. She set up a call and we talked for about 45 minutes. She then sent me a link to complete the video which was nerve wracking at first, but as I did it, found that it was actually a great opportunity for me to speak to my experience. She told me in advance the questions are pre-selected by the hiring manager, so I felt like it was pretty realistic. Within 2 days of completing the video, I got feedback from Krystal. They went with another person for the job, but the process overall was easy and fast. I'd definitely apply for another job here. I followed up with Krystal for feedback and she got right back to me. I interviewed for a job recently and after going IN TO THE COMPANY, they NEVER EVEN EMAILED ME to tell me I didn't get the job. Just terrible. Lindt was at least fast and responsive which I feel like us interviewers really deserve and appreciate.
