    Staff Accountant Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Atlanta, GA

    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.

    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at National Vision (Fort Lauderdale, FL) in February 2014.

    Interview

    I was flown in for my interview with the recruiter and met up with a fellow optometrist. They showed me around the offices in the area and explained to me the business model and how things are run as a company. It wasn't so much of an interview as it was a meet and greet for them to know that I'm a personable person and will fit in to the company motto and environment. It wasn't daunting in the least.

    Interview Questions

    • They asked me am I able to work in a fast paced environment
      Am I competent in fitting contact lenses
      They asked me what area I'm looking to work in the area
      They asked me about my extracurriculars outside of work
      It was more about getting to know me as a person vs talking about the profession itself as we are all Licenced to practice doctors.   Answer Question

    Human Resources Generalist Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Atlanta, GA
    No Offer
    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.
