    Third Key Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Bridgeport, CT
    Accepted Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at Papyrus (Bridgeport, CT).

    Interview

    The interview process is literally "be a friend of someone who works there." That's it. Don't bother applying otherwise. No interview. Hired sight unseen. Worked out for them. I was young and dumb and now I stay because I get paid to read sometimes.

    Part Time Sales Associate Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Ypsilanti, MI
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Papyrus (Ypsilanti, MI) in November 2016.

    Interview

    Applied to the position online by sending in my resume to the email address they had on the mall site. A couple of hours later, I received a call from the manager and she asked when I would be available for an interview. So the response time was VERY FAST, which was awesome. I went in the next day ( I didn't bring my resume because I knew she had a copy already) for my interview and the manager was really nice. I knew I had the job because she told me she absolutely loved my resume and loved how I formatted it. We sat outside of the store (in the mall) and she asked a few basic questions. Most of the interview was spent by her explaining the history of papyrus, which was cool, even though I already researched the site. She offered me the position and I accepted. She then told me that I would receive a call from her district manager the next day so that she could get to know me too.
    I did receive a call the next day by the district manger. She seemed nice but sort of distracted. I understood that she had a busy morning, though. She asked me more basic interview questions then offered the position once again, and I accepted.

    Assistant Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    No Offer
    Negative Experience

    Interview

    Typical interview questions. Interviewer seemed annoyed to have to take time out of her day to talk to me.

    This was my 3rd interview (2nd in person interview). It's been two weeks and no one has called, emailed, or written to offer/decline to offer me a job. Very unprofessional.

    Interview

    Horrible. The woman didn't even look me in my face or greet me, no hand shake. When I told her my name she was just kind of (like yea ok whatever just sit down.) Not to mention I had to wait for her to be ready to interview me.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Papyrus (New York, NY) in August 2015.

    Interview

    At first I interviewed with the Store Manager at the location. It was in the front of the store which I found odd. I've never been interviewed on the sales floor but he didn't seem bothered by it. After that he told me that the Area Manager would interview me. It was scheduled 2 days after.

    Assistant Store Manager Interview

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Papyrus (New York, NY) in August 2015.

    Interview

    Honestly the woman who interviewed me barely asked me anything. She let me know she didn't like my outfit though, because I wasn't wearing all black. She told me she would call to set up a second interview if it got that far, and instead called to offer me the position of a selling supervisor. She ensured me that I would start in this role and my performance would be reviewed in 4-6 weeks; no one worked with me to train me properly so I didn't get my promotion for months.
