    Graphic Designer Interview

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Madewell (Long Island City, NY).

    Interview

    Ultitimately there was many flaws within the recruiters poor level of communication from both ends. I would follow up and got nothing back for days. They also had me do a design challenge AFTER the interview which personally I think it's better to do the design test first and then interview because then it gives them a better sense of what you can do for them. Trying to redeem yourself with a decision challenge doesn't work when they've already made up their mind about you.

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at Madewell (New York, NY) in December 2017.

    Interview

    I applied through their website and received an email asking me to come in for an interview a few days later. The interview was very casual, the interviewer was very pleasant and easy to talk to. They asked me if I had any questions and what my salary requirements were. They told me they would have their hiring manager for the department contact me for a second interview. The interviewer spoke to me like a friend, very laid back and stressed that this was a good working environment. Basically gave an overview of the job details and said that passion for their product was key. Waiting to hear back and find out more details of the job. Asked me if I had any questions about the position.

    Associate Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Madewell.

    Interview

    I applied through their website, which was a typical on-line application. Once submitted you receive an e-mail stating if they're interested they will follow up. About 2-3 days later I received a follow up e-mail, with an interview set up the following week in store (whichever you were applying for). The interview was pretty straight forward as they go for a management role It lasted about 1 1/2 - 2 hours, filled work related questions, and getting to know each other as a leader and individual. Where Madewell dropped the ball, they never followed up. As someone who knows the proper procedures, I sent a follow up thank you e-mail. A week later, another follow up e-mail. 2 weeks from the interview date, one last follow up e-mail. It's one thing to not get the job, which I and many other people can handle rejection, but it's the common courtesy of sending out a simple e-mailing and letting that person know. It's flat out rude, and speaks highly of that manager and the company. Unfortunate.
