    Director Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in San Francisco, CA
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at The RealReal (San Francisco, CA) in September 2018.

    Interview

    The Recruiter reached out to me to schedule a phone interview. I provided the times available as requested but he never got back to me. I followed up and then the interview was scheduled. The Recruiter was on a speaker phone and I couldn't hear the questions and I politely said I couldn't hear because he was on speaker. He came closer to the phone for a minute and then moved away and I couldn't hear or understand what he was saying. Very unprofessional and he was not interested in the call. Left a bad taste for me for the company.

    Interview

    Call with the recruiter, then call with the hiring manager, and then in person with 3 team members. This was the WORST company to interview with, borderline shady. you can tell the team is super catty, and the hiring manager was very negative in general, and condescending

    Luxury Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Fort Lauderdale, FL
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at The RealReal (Fort Lauderdale, FL) in September 2018.

    Interview

    Southern regional manager called me after a mutual friend referred me. She basically offered me the job talking about salary and start dates. Then she had me meet with another luxury manager the next day. The following day I received a call from HR discussing the job and told me she would get back to me with the full package. Discussed all benefits abd requirements. Two days later I met with the woman who would be my direct boss. She was lovely. She had me shadow another luxury manager the following week. She assured me that I was the only one in the running for this position. Fast forward two weeks later and they are still “considering” me for the position.
