    Sales Associate Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Norfolk, VA
    No Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Teavana (Norfolk, VA) in June 2017.

    Interview

    The interview was simple and easy, she asked me questions that I knew how to answer. She was nice and said I probably have plenty of experience from working at my current job (grocery store). She told me she'd had other interviews and would call me in a few days to be fair, but she sent me a rejection email 15 minutes after my interview. I was shocked because I thought the interview went well so I called her and asked why and she said "we need someone for Christmas" and I told her that was available for Christmas, then she said "maybe that was someone else, we also need someone with more experience". This also confused me because she told that I probably had plenty of experience in the interview and the job description said no previous experience is needed. Either she was confused or not being truthful. Overall, this was a waste of time.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Teavana.

    Interview

    Went on one on one interview. That went super well, then I went into a group interview. did not get call back. The group interview was done literally outside in the mall with the general public which I found to be strange.

    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Teavana (Fairview Heights, IL) in May 2017.

    Interview

    Applied mid/late-April. Was finally asked to come in and interview on a Friday afternoon in late May. A positive thing is that I did get a free drink. However, the questions were tough. Was told I would hear back in a week and never received a call. As of the time of this review, it has been a month since my interview. I am glad I applied elsewhere and got a job because this interview process was terrible.

    Interview

    It was a one-on-one interview with the manager. You have to do the application online first before one is set up. It's a pretty simple interview where the manager asks you questions from a paper she has with her.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. I interviewed at Teavana in April 2017.

    Interview

    I was offered an interview before I applied online because I spoke to the manager about working there while I was shopping. I applied online and my interview was 2 days later. I was asked various questions about myself as well as the company and working at Teavana. It was a pretty simple interview, but the interviewer's emotions were hard to read so I couldn't tell if they liked me or not.

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Teavana.

    Interview

    Area manager emailed me and set a time to meet. We had an hour long conversation. We talked about Teavanas history, the buyout and changes that have come with that. She asked me about what tea means to me and what role does it play in my life. She asked some general performance based questions. She asked about strengths and weaknesses and asked me to walk her through a time when I had to have a difficult conversation with a team member and how I followed through with it. Overall the meet up went really well. Second interview was a call interview with the senior recruiter. She was very nice and again spoke about teavana, went over the benefits more in depth, and we talked more about compensation. She did also asked me what size teams I have managed and the volume of the stores as well. The interview was light, friendly and seems very natural. I have another phone interview with another area manager and the regional director next Saturday.
