I worked at Pampered Chef part-time

high monthly quota to remain active
Advice to Management
great support system in place for consultants
I applied online. The process took 5 weeks. I interviewed at Pampered Chef (Addison, IL) in November 2017.
The whole process took a little over a month, starting with an application on November 5th and a final rejection on December 8th. There were two phone interviews and two onsite interviews involving 8 different people from a variety of teams. There was also a non-paid, written "skills test" asking you to detail and critique recent existing campaigns that were running. After completion, no mention of this "test" was brought up in any of the 10 interviews.
At the end of the process the did not hire anyone and were starting over.
Something to note: The role did not seem clearly defined and many team members had different opinions on what the role would entail and what departments it would touch. In general, the job description didn't seem to 100% match what they actually wanted of the position. It was less of a social media manager role and more of a B2B social and recruiting strategist position.
