    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Pampered Chef (Addison, IL) in August 2016.

    Interview

    Applied online and heard back from a recruiter ~5 weeks later. Completed a phone interview with the recruiter and then had 2 in-person interviews. First one was an hour long where the interviewer did nothing but walk through my resume. The second interview lasted an hour and 40 mins late on a Friday afternoon. We talked about my background and the interviewer asked me how I would address a few of the hurdles that he has now. He told me at the end of the interview the next step would be for me to meet with the officers of the company. I didn't hear back for 3 weeks and was told that they decided to go another way with the position. The recruiter had no feedback for me on why there was a change of mind.

    Director, Marketing Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 8 weeks. I interviewed at Pampered Chef (Addison, IL) in June 2016.

    Interview

    Submitted online application and contacted a few weeks later by a contract recruiter via email. Phone screen with recruiter was very standard, progressed to phone interview with hiring manager (C-level exec) and then an in-person interview. Recruiter took about a week to respond to emails. She asked for my availability for a phone interview, I provided dates and she didn't respond until AFTER those dates had passed. Took equally as long to get a response after asked about my availability for on-site interview. Once scheduled it was then cancelled and rescheduled, which is tricky when you are taking time from your current job to be able to go to the interview.
    Heard nothing after the in person interview. Followed up via email and a few days later received a response that they were choosing to proceed with another candidate. Not sure I would have ever been updated if I had not taken it upon myself to ask.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Pampered Chef (Addison, IL) in September 2015.

    Interview

    Phone interview to "ask a few questions". The interviewer asked LOTS of questions about work style and why I was looking for work. As soon as I asked why they are hiring for the position I got a LONG PAUSE! I researched them on Glassdoor and found out that they have a terrible reputation for lay-offs. That's the last thing I need!

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Pampered Chef (Addison, IL) in August 2015.

    Interview

    It started off well. It was a regular phone interview with the usual questions including what my salary expectations were. When I asked her what the pay scale was for the position, there was no answer. Perhaps if she worded the question differently, (I see you have 10 years experience . . .), I would have been more apt to discuss pay, but when I asked if the position they were hiring for was a new position, the person quit, or there was a lay-off. I did not get a response to that question either. I was told that they were still interviewing, that I had the experience that they were looking for, but that she would send her recommendations to the creative manager and he would take it from there.

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Pampered Chef (Racine, WI) in March 2015.

    Interview

    I had an automated phone interview and I don't know why but I didn't feel comfortable with the questions asked. With it being an automated call I couldn't verify if I understood what they were asking. They took in my opinion a long time to to get back to me with the results of the call.

    IT Recruiter Interview

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at Pampered Chef (Addison, IL) in February 2015.

    Interview

    Who makes the positive reviews of this company? I interviewed for their IT recruiter position.
    Initial phone interview, onsite, then another phone interview with Scrum Master, for IT Recruiter position??

    Anyway, after them canceling that phone interview with their Scrum Master, I said no. I got really fed up with their interview process, and their recruiting manager, Heather Hadrys wasn't impressive at all, dragging out the interview processes. It would have been better to either cancel the position up front, or just say unable to move forward, instead of adding on layers of extra interviews.

    Overall, the whole experience left a bad taste.

    Interview

    This part was like any other place. You apply then you get a call from HR. She set up an appointment then I met with a couple people. They called me back for a second interview. This was pretty routine of what you would expect. They called and checked the references.
