    Jeweler Interview

    Anonymous Employee
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Sterling Jewelers.

    Interview

    Easy - Met with the manager in person, I had to wait for a while before the interview because the manager was busy with customers. The interview was very casual. It was not difficult. The manager was basically looking for a warm body to fill the position, so I got the offer almost immediately.

    Took about 45 minutes, interviewer repeatedly had to stop because she did not have enough staff on the floor. Very nice as well as polite. Was promised full time during interview, was later told part time or nothing. All in all very smooth path to get the job itself, huge bump in the road hours wise.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at Sterling Jewelers (Mishawaka, IN) in May 2017.

    Interview

    Very smooth, and right to the point. Did a virtual job tryout and it was awesome. I think more companies should do this because it helps the employer get to know you more and also helps the employee se if the job is the right fit for them.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Sterling Jewelers (Akron, OH) in March 2015.

    Interview

    I submitted my application online. I waited at least two weeks (maybe longer) before I heard from anyone. Someone from HR finally called and scheduled a phone interview with me. HR rep was very professional and friendly and the phone interview took about 45 minutes. I did not get scheduled for a face to face interview until more than a month (about 6 weeks) later. For that interview, I was interviewed by three managers and/or directors from similar departments within the company. I was very surprised to see that everyone was wearing jeans and dressed very casually. Though I felt completely overdressed wearing an interview suit, I was still able to connect with the interviewers because everyone was very friendly and down-to-earth. I thought the interview went very well and I was shocked when HR called me a day or two later to tell me that they had selected an internal candidate for the position.

    Application

    I interviewed at Sterling Jewelers in December 2015.

    Interview

    I applied to be their Spring intern. I was contacted for a phone interview. The guy asked lengthy and kind of confusing questions. Definitely ones I wasn't prepared for. They said they would get back to me within one or two weeks by phone. I got nothing. Over a month later I got an email saying I didn't get the job. The interview process was okay but the questions caught me off guard.
