    Digital Asset Coordinator Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Huntington Beach, CA
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Quiksilver (Huntington Beach, CA) in February 2017.

    Interview

    HR recruiter contacted me by phone. HR recruiter did a basic phone screen first. Then asked me to come in to meet the “hiring manager“. The HR recruiter asked me to come in early morning. I arrived and the doors were locked. The recruiter had not provided any instructions beyond the arrival time, so I assumed he or a receptionist would be there to meet me. After roaming around for awhile, one of the building staff was able to put me in touch with the recruiter, who finally came out to meet me. After a standard 15 minute HR interview, he took me to meet with the hiring manager, with whom I was also scheduled to interview.
        The hiring manager was not there. After about 15 minutes of uncomfortable silence and small talk with the HR recruiter while we waited, the hiring manager arrived. Not much to the “interview”. The hiring manager pretty much just gave me a general job description and then stared at me in silence. Very awkward. I asked a few relevant questions about the position. After answering, the hiring manager would just stare in silence. I got the distinct impression he had little interest and just wanted to get the interview over with as soon as possible. He did not ask me any relevant questions about my background or experience. When I asked him if there was anything on my resume he would like me to give more detail about, he said no. The interview ended. Also, even though the recruiter had told me that the person I was meeting with was the “hiring manager“, it turned out he was not. The gentleman who kept staring at me told me that the real hiring manager was actually based at there European headquarters in France and that I would need to interview with him by Skype or phone in order to be hired. If they had told me that on the phone, I would have declined to come in, seeing it for the wild goose chase it was. Probably why they chose to not reveal that information at the outset.
        It was a total waste of my time and money. The recruiter mentioned that they had been looking for a few months. I do not think they are seriously looking to fill the position. My impression is that they are on a never-ending fishing expedition with no serious interest in any particular candidate. Hence, the lack of questions and the lack of courtesy exhibited towards candidates. Not surprisingly, within a couple of days they had relisted the position yet again. Knowing what I know now, I will avoid this company in the future. Very unprofessional people and an unpleasant experience.

    Interview

    The interview was brief but thorough. I expected simple questions but was surprised by the questions that asked and was a little stumped on a view. But it showed they took their employee hiring process serious and wanted hard workers only.

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Quiksilver in September 2015.

    Interview

    They usually get people based off their Facebook and social media when they apply, keep that in mind. Otherwise, the interview was normal as any surf shop, asking you questions any normal place would. Very informal, however. If you get along with the people you probably wouldn't have much trouble.

    Interview

    They talk to you very casually to figure out what kind of person you are. They will likely ask you to pick out three outfits from their three brand choices, this is to see what your style is like.
