    Head Office Position Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Atlanta, GA
    No Offer
    Negative Experience

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Spanx (Atlanta, GA).

    Interview

    The interviewer cancelled 2 interviews AFTER the scheduled time has already passed, and didn't even bother to cancel the 3rd scheduled interview, just forgot to call.
    To me this is alarming and reflects negatively on the company.

    Staff Accountant Interview

    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 6 days. I interviewed at Spanx in September 2016.

    Interview

    Human resource recruiter was completely incompetent. My experience was highly unprofessional. It must be really hard to find good people when your recruiter doesn't make good on her interview appointments. For starters she was 20 minutes late calling for my first interview. Then when she did finally call she rescheduled my interview while she was walking to a meeting. These things happen, so I graciously accepted the inconvenience and picked one of the times that she offered to interview me the following day. Then she stood me up for the second interview and lied about it. After 45 minutes of waiting I contacted her. 30 minutes after that she emailed me saying she had tried to call several times. She flat out lied. Who calls several times without leaving a message...there were no messages left. The were no missed calls on my phone record. She forgot and was simply not professional enough to admit it. She was walking and never wrote down the rescheduled interview time. Surely she will not be calling me back for an interview because it would expose her disorganization and lack of professionalism.

    Brand Coordinator Interview

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Spanx (Atlanta, GA) in September 2016.

    Interview

    The process took about 3-4 weeks. It took about 2-3 weeks to get back to me after applying. Once they did, they asked me to complete a writing sample before proceeding. After submission, someone from HR got back to me saying that it was great and that they would like to proceed with an interview. Day of the interview, I was made to wait in the lobby for 45 minutes to an hour. Typically, I can roll with that but I had somewhere very important to be afterwards. I interviewed with two people. I thought it went pretty well. This is an honest review...I don't tend to automatically think these things but I will not lie, I did notice that no one there looked like me so it had me slightly worried (I am a woman of color). The next day, I sent the standard follow-up email thanking them and asking about how long it would take to hear back. One of them (the main person who interviewed me) never responded. The person from HR responded telling me that my writing submission wasn't accepted by the team. That's totally fine. But why not run my writing sample by the team BEFORE I come to the office and interview?? If that's even really why I was rejected. I live 40 minutes outside of Atlanta; it took even more time with that Buckhead traffic and my interview being delayed an hour. The whole thing felt like a complete waste and like there was zero respect for me or my time.

    Intern Interview

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Spanx (Atlanta, GA) in April 2016.

    Interview

    The hiring process took like 3 months. I emailed and applied in March and immediately got a call. The call was super brief and very personal. I didn't get an email until end of April/beginning of May that I was to come in to the office for an interview. This interview was with HR and two members of the team I'd be working with. A lot more q's about my background but still very fun and friendly.

    Part Time Sales Associate Interview

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at Spanx (Santa Monica, CA).

    Interview

    I interviewed with the store manager, which was okay. Interview questions but like a conversation. The back store looked really small and so interview was at a coffee shop. Manager bought me coffee it was cool. She seemed to really like me and said I had to interview with the director, via facetime. She said one of the purposes was for image (???). We set up a time/date to facetime, but I never got a call, also did not have the number to facetime her. The manager called and apologized, wanted to reschedule. We did. This time I got a call, but 20 minutes late. The person was in her sweats. She asked me a few questions, like from a list, but mostly talked her head off. I honestly thought she was high.
    I never heard from them for two weeks after, so I followed up with the store manager. She said they "went in a different direction" and would not comment about weather or not it was my "image". BTW, I am a woman of color.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Spanx in January 2016.

    Interview

    Terrible experience. My first interview was great, but after being told 3 different times that I would be a better fit for a different role within Spanx and THEN Being told 3 months later they chose an internal candidate... what?! So misleading and a waste of time. Good luck to you.

    Interview

    Very lengthy. Reached out about position months prior and it wasn't until the week before the internship start date did they reach out to schedule a face-to-face interview. Face-to-face interviews involved two department managers whom ask a variety of standard interview questions. Received a phone call from HR Manager the following day offering me the position.

    Internship Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Atlanta, GA
    Declined Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 5+ months. I interviewed at Spanx (Atlanta, GA).

    Interview

    Interview process takes forever. First started with a phone call to discuss the internship. Then an email several weeks late responding to my follow up email, then another phone interview to discuss again. (Recruiter also missed second phone interview twice), not organized or respectful of time. Recruiters are very slow to respond to emails. Had to keep in touch with recruiter for 5+ months. Finally brought in for a face to face interview. Recruiting is very unorganized, seems like a sorority house.

    Intern Interview

    Negative Experience

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Spanx (Atlanta, GA) in August 2015.

    Interview

    I firstly reached out to the hiring manager, one phone interview and an in-person interview a week later. Following up is such a pain they are very unorganized and barely ever respond to emails. Now my advise to hiring managers there,at least respond to emails and let job candidates know that you are not moving forward with them rather than ignoring emails! Very impolite and unprofessional !
