    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Original Penguin (Cypress, TX) in October 2012.

    Interview

    I walked into the store and had to wait a couple of minutes for the manager to come out. I was really nervous, but the manager was really relaxed and easy going. There were really simple questions, and I was basically hired after I did the interview. Everyone at the store greeted me kindly as well.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at Original Penguin.

    Interview

    I was approached when one of the other keyholders was leaving, as I was the only person in the store with experience. It was only 1 face to face interview with the area manager, and that was only because he happened to be in town that weekend. It was very informal, he only asked a few questions about my previous experience and why I left there.

    Part-Time Sales Associate Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Las Vegas, NV

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at Original Penguin (Las Vegas, NV) in September 2015.

    Interview

    The interview process is unique in Original Penguin, an applicant goes through 3 interviews:

    1) Basic interview with the Store Manager
    2) Moderate interview with the District Manager
    3) Phone interview with the Business Manager

    I went through all of the three interviews, the questions were based on introduction, basic experience, "What-ifs" scenario, history pays, short-term and long-term careers, integrity and customer service. The process was surprisingly easy and the experience was positive until I was "promised" to be on board with the business and the team. Right after the phone interview, I was told that I was a good fit for the team and they'd eager to bring me on board the "next day". But after 2 months follow-ups and lack of response, I never received any confirmation. I would think they'd be professional to return a call or send me an email of my status after I received a word of being a "perfect fit" from them... but I received no response. Follow-ups are useless.
