    Positive Outlook

    I have been working at Heritage Auctions part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Heritage was a great place to work. Everyone is very nice, they took great care of me, and offer great perks such as gym access in the building and snacks and coffee. I loved the time that I spent there.

    Cons

    I can't think of any cons of working at Heritage.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Heritage Auctions (Dallas, TX) in May 2017.

    Interview

    *Brief conversation with HR over the phone (very friendly and helpful)

    *online assessment tests (must score a certain percentage to move on to second step)

    *after passing first assessment test you will be given another at home test (mostly personality questions to see how you will fit in with the rest of the staff, be honest, and read these questions carefully. They will know if you are only answering with what sounds like the correct answer. There is no correct answer honestly. But answer honestly to questions like "I have never ever told a lie before"

    *in person assessment tests (basic math that requires you to answer as many as possible before the timer is up). Also a handwriting sample where they ask you to write about a recent good memory.

    *face-to-face interview asking about past experiences in the jewelry field, GIA certifications, good and bad experiences working with past clients. Questions about special skills and working with gemological equipment. Questions about previous employment positions and why they should hire you.

    I met the majority of requirements for the position but lost all interest halfway through the face to face interview after they mentioned salary ($35,000) with zero room for growth (which I figured out on my own). On top of that you could work anywhere from 8:00am to the early next morning if approaching a deadline (which happens quite often apparently). Overall you'd come out making about minimum wage to be quite honest.

    This job is not recommended for someone with a family life. More like a job for singles.
