    Accountant Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Ann Arbor, MI
    No Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Interview

    Zingermans uses a revolving interview approach, where all applicants for the jobs rotate between interviewers, like a speed dating concept. It was enjoyable and interesting and let me know who else was applying for the job. At the end, I was actually glad for the person who got the job and could see why he was a good fit.

    Event Assistant Interview

    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Zingerman's (Ann Arbor, MI) in February 2015.

    Interview

    Phone interview first followed by an in person interview. The in person interview would have included some of the team I would've been working with which I would've found very helpful. However, I did not make it past the phone interview stage. I felt like the interviewer was asking me very basic questions that didn't really allow me to explain my reasoning for wanting to take a step back in my career.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Zingerman's (Ann Arbor, MI) in October 2014.

    Interview

    Phone interview and in-person interview. A manager and I met in the Next Door and chatted for about an hour. There was a plate of delicious food where I got to sample a number of products sold at the Deli. It was a bit tricky managing eating and answering questions but all they are looking for is if you enjoy trying new things.
