    Retail Sales Representative Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Princeton, NJ
    No Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3+ weeks. I interviewed at The Hershey Company (Princeton, NJ) in October 2016.

    Interview

    Process took about 3 weeks. Recruiter reached to me and had me apply. I then had a phone screen and a few days later was emailed and instructed that a video interview would be conducted. Did the interview and moved on to the Field Day which was great because you spent the day with a sales rep and mine was extremely helpful and friendly we hit it off and the job was very intriguing. Unfortunately a few days later i received an email that I would not be moving on in the interview process. Which was unfortunate being as they reached out to me and by how quickly things were moving and also because of great things were going as well. The email was one of those scripted emails.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at The Hershey Company (New Orleans, LA) in October 2016.

    Interview

    Interviewed at a national career fair conference. People were friendly and professional enjoyable interview. I felt the interview went well and went to the mixer that night. My only complaint was that I haven't heard yet yes or no and it is now over a month later. I think that they are a great fun company to potentially work for but a little disorganized in the follow up process.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at The Hershey Company.

    Interview

    First you have a phone screening which they'll have you schedule online, the next step if they move you forward is a video interview (which starts out weird, but gets much easier definitely practice some questions) They'll ask a lot of STAR questions in the video. If that goes well they'll ask you to do a field day which is all day 8AM-5PM but will reimburse you for meals and mileage. Last they will offer you a meeting with a hiring manager if that goes well you will be offered a job with the Hershey Company
