    Digital Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in New York, NY
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Boots (New York, NY) in February 2018.

    Interview

    HOWEVER, the meeting with the hiring manager was horrible. As a hiring manager myself, I have interviewed many people and understand you can have an off day, be incredibly stressed, or not be interested in a candidate. Throughout the entire meeting she never smiled, not even when she greeted me. Her vibe conveyed the fact there are major internal issues, or she hates working there. Typically, an interview consists of questions and a back-and-forth conversation. She went on a :30 rant about how much she is doing, was slouched down in the chair and did not convey any excitement for the company. I thought is she going to stop talking and ask me anything? I still have respect for the company, but a weak link exists in leadership.
