    1. Art Director Interview

      Anonymous Employee in Lynwood Center, WA
      No Offer
      Negative Experience
      Difficult Interview

      I applied online. The process took 2 months. I interviewed at Zumiez (Lynwood Center, WA)


      The job process was one of the most inefficient processes that I have faced, having done 30+ interviews in my professional career. Very bad communication, HR wasn't involved in the process at all, and lack of professionalism throughout. This is the 2nd position that I have interviewed for at Zumiez, receiving an offer for the other position which was the same process but with very pleasant individuals! So it depends on the team that you are interviewing with and the hiring manager you have. The process for me was: 1. Initial screening interview with the hiring manager over Zoom which was pleasant! 2. In-person/zoom interview with the top leadership and management where they truly will drill you. I don't believe that they communicated with the hiring manager after however, as many questions were repeated and information was clearly not transferred in their decision. 3. (the worst part) 6 hour long interview with every single member of the team (I believe it was 12-15 individuals) including a case study where you critique the work of all designers 4. Potentially one more clarifying interview 5. Communication about decision (ghosted me and then finally replied after 1-2 months about a rejection and how I didn't have the years of experiences to qualify-- which was obvious on my resume). I believe that this was a really fun team, but just lacked a lot of organization & professionalism. Could use a revamp of their recruiting process!
