    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.

    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.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Sterling Jewelers (Waterbury, CT) in September 2016.

    Interview

    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.

    Department Manager Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Akron, OH
    Accepted Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at Sterling Jewelers (Akron, OH).

    Interview

    My interviews were great and I got the job. Then they laid me off shortly after they hired me. I left a job I had had for almost a century! It was a humiliating process. I really liked my boss and my team that worked for me, but Sterling/Signet has NO CLUE how to have their managers MANAGE so they let them all go... Now all the directors have to manage multiple teams without any assistance. They work about 12 hours a day and have no lives.

    Negotiation

    Yes, but little good it did me after they let all their managers go.
