    I have been working at Hudson's Bay (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Department stores and ecommerce are in a period of extreme change. Tons of opportunity to reinvent systems, workflows, new rev streams.

    Cons

    Layoffs are in the air, lots of uncertainty. Management not aligned in the path forward, culture of cronyism. Recent capital clawback makes it an uphill battle to convince leaders to invest.

    Interview

    I was excited to hear that Gilt wanted to speak to me regarding an opportunity. Made myself conveniently available to chat over the phone within the 24 hour time period they provided. However, HR never called at our scheduled time. I emailed them after waiting 15 minutes and still heard nothing. Because this call was planned for a Friday, I reached out again that following Monday. HR responded to this email, apologized, and rescheduled. They simply ignored the email I sent Friday regarding the missed phone interview. So, we rescheduled.

    On the day of our rescheduled phone interview, HR reached out saying their availability changed and they could only do that morning. Sadly I was sitting in a meeting and couldn't take the call. HR said Monday would work. I emailed her to confirm that Monday was open for me and requested a time. Never heard back. I followed up one last time and still have heard nothing.

    I don't blame the branded company I applied to for this mishap as they are tied to HBC. I totally get that things pop up. It's the lack of response that made me frustrated. Sadly, the recruiter claimed to be committed to bringing in top talent to the organization. Well, that person certainly fooled me.
