    Digital Optimization Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at National Vision.

    Interview

    I was very shocked by the lack of respect the digital marketing team had. Arrived 10 min early. No sign of hiring manager in sight! Receptionist tells me they might be running late from lunch...ok. 7 minutes after scheduled interview, one of the team members greets me to walk inside. Half tucked shirt, lazy gait and an attitude of "I really don't know why I am part of this process". Walk into the office and hiring manager has no apologies whatsoever. Barely even wants to stand up from chair to greet. Right off the bat first interview question " Tell me about your experience at your last position". A good interview means making the candidate comfortable by small talk and not start off awkwardly with the compounded effect of tardiness from team.

    Walked them thru various issues of website and optimization efforts. One of the interviewers was dozing off, brilliant! The hiring manager had a poker face throughout interview, sweet! I was unsure where the interview was going- very few technical questions asked and a sense of being in a room where 2 people are least bit interested in the hiring process.

    Rejected due to over communication of efforts at past roles. But to me it was because they felt technically challenged in understanding nuances of website optimizations. If only changing a few colors of buttons to test CRO is your goal then you hire an intern. Good lord!

    Human Resources Generalist Interview

    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at National Vision (Atlanta, GA) in January 2017.

    Interview

    I applied and was called within 2 days of applying. I initially conducted a phone interview with someone from the Human Resource Department at National Vision in Duluth, GA. I had a great phone interview and was sent an assessment to complete. The assessment was not your typical management assessment with multiple choice questions it included complex math and language portions. I was told that after the assessment I would be called in for an in person interview. All together the assessment took about an hour and a half to two hours in a quiet coffee shop. I completed the assessment and waited for a phone call back from HR. I heard nothing. I then emailed HR after a few days. Still heard nothing. Two weeks later I get a general email that was clearly copy and pasted with my name that’s reads: "We have selected another candidate sorry for this disappointing information." If you’re in the HR field and you treat candidates like this what does that say about your company? After investing the time to complete the process candidates don’t deserve a one to two sentenced typed personalized email? This company and HR department seem to treat potential candidates like your typical headhunter recruiting firm: recruit 50 people, and have them go through a lengthy process then blindly select one and hope it works out, if not they just repost on indeed.com in a month or so. I would not recommend this company to anyone.

    Receptionist Interview

    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at National Vision (Richmond, VA) in April 2016.

    Interview

    I took the initiative to drop my application off in person at the store hiring. Got a call the next week & scheduled 1st interview soon after that. A week later, I had my 2nd interview. My last interview was done by District Manager. All nice people! Some questions were similar, some were different.

    I wrote "Difficult" for Interview process because of the 3 different levels of management you have to go through. However, I am comfortable with 1 on 1 interview style so it wasn't too bad.

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at National Vision.

    Interview

    Did a phone interview with the Human Resourses Rep. It was a typical interview. Nothing really noteworthy. This interview happened a while ago, but I guess they are still looking to hire the position.

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at National Vision (Atlanta, GA) in May 2015.

    Interview

    Phone Interview with HR and Department manager. One of the worst interview experiences I have had ever. I interviewed with the Accounting manager and I was told she liked me as a candidate, my resume was forwarded to HR and I subsequently had another interview with them. A week later I received a call from HR asking me to complete a pre-employment assessment which I was told would not affect the hiring decision, I completed the assessment and sent it back to HR. HR then set up a phone interview with the VP of Finance the next day in the morning. I waited for the phone interview the next and I have not heared from National Vision since then. I sent several emails to HR asking for closure on the status of the position but I got no response.
