    Interview

    Best interview I've ever had. Felt more like a conversation than an interview. Met with about 7 people who were all great. There was a small excel test but if you know v-lookup, and basics of excel you will do fine.

    Sourcing Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    No Offer
    Negative Experience

    Interview

    Spoke with a useless HR representative who was curt and moody throughout my initial phone interview. A few days later she called me back and was sugary sweet nice to me about meeting with the head of the department I wanted to interview with- she was awesome, knew her stuff and could explain the job in more detail.

    Been back in touch with the recruiter for next steps but she's been ignoring my calls for weeks. Does not give a good impression of the company.

    Systems Engineer IV Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Sacramento, CA
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Williams-Sonoma (Sacramento, CA) in December 2016.

    Interview

    The Interview was setup to be a phone interview Late in the afternoon on a Friday, they were supposed to call me. The call never came. The call was rescheduled for the following Tuesday morning. This time the call did come, from Overseas in India. The call quality was horrible and the person conducting the interview had such a strong accent he was difficult to understand. After two questions he rudely ended the call by stating they'll be in touch and he hung up. This was a professional interview How? You got me.. It was pathetic and nothing close to professional..

    The person conducting the interview was very rude & unprofessional & I am beginning to understand the companies high employee turn over. I will think twice before interviewing with them again. The recruiter was on the call muted and I was glad they were now they are questioning there business relationship with the company..
