    IT Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    No Offer
    Negative Experience

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Vitamix in March 2017.

    Interview

    I submitted an application online and heard back with an offer for an interview within a day. We set up a day and time for a phone interview and then....Nothing. I was never called when I was told I would be called for an interview, and when I emailed asking if we needed to reschedule, I was again ignored. I've never experienced such unprofessionalism before. Months later I received an email saying the position no longer exists.

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Vitamix in January 2017.

    Interview

    I had 2 interviews. One on the phones and one in person. Both interviews you are asked behavioral type questions, "Tell me a time when you when above and beyond for a customer.".. Questions like that. For the in person interview there are two separate interviews with 3 managers in each. They all ask you questions about why you want the job, behavioral questions and just random ones. Then after the interviews you shadow someone on the phones to see how the job is done.
