    Operations Manager Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Garden City, NY
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at The Red Door Salon & Spa (Garden City, NY) in March 2017.

    Interview

    It was multilayered. It started with a phone interview followed by a series of interviews with different Gm's in the region. Once I was accepted I was then able to fill out all the paperwork prior to starting so the transition from old job to new job was very smooth.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at The Red Door Salon & Spa (New York, NY) in August 2013.

    Interview

    There were two interviews for the position. One verbal and one practical. There was also plenty of room to negotiate an hourly rate but ultimately I felt the base pay was pretty low. The commission and tips do make up for it though if the spa is busy.

    Interview Questions

    Brought portfolio into the spa along with a resume, and presented it to the manager. I was told I would receive a phone call from the head of the makeup department. Received the phone call and was called in for an interview. The first interview was two pages of questions. I was told to come in to do a makeup demonstration the next week.
