    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Madewell (New York, NY) in April 2018.

    Interview

    I wad brought around in to this tiny room, briefly interviews for 5 minutes and than the experienced ended unprofessionally in the light of professionalism. She didn't even shake my hand... I had to turn around and shake her hand and it was like she was stunned. Very odd.

    Graphic Designer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Long Island City, NY
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    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.

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.
