    Design Coordinator Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    No Offer
    Negative Experience

    Application

    I applied through other source. I interviewed at Reitmans.

    Interview

    I was approached by a member of the company who saw my profile online and believed I was a "wonderful person to contact for the role". Communication in setting up a phone interview happened very fast, and a date and time was confirmed quickly after that initial outreach. One month later, I am still waiting for that interview call. She never responded to my emails, simply devaluing my time and interest in the opportunity. A simple response saying that the position has been filled would have sufficed (although the job posting is still up). The situation was handled extremely unprofessionally; I hope that the rest of the company does not run the same way.

    Communications Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Montreal, QC (Canada)
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Reitmans (Montreal, QC (Canada)).

    Interview

    Very poorly organized, and I've heard this from other people as well. I was contacted for a phone interview after applying for the position. After reserving (and paying for) a private room to conduct my phone interview in, I received an email at the time of the call giving me some random excuse that the HR person mixed up the times and needed to reschedule. It took 2 weeks to hear back from this person after I responded immediately.
