    All the people I met was nice. But the hiring manager was not there, they arrange a wrong schedule. Some assistant talked to me just a few minutes. Then they never contact me. NOT fair...

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Bloomingdale's (New York, NY (US)) in April 2018.

    Interview

    Recruited from my university portal. Requested an interview via call. Scheduled a call, the interviewer seemed preoccupied since the start of the conversation. I felt I was there to summary my resume.

    Requested to apply directly on Bloomingdale's website, I decided not to.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Bloomingdale's.

    Interview

    It was quick and straightforward. It's somewhat a process; I had 2 interviews the first interview was a phone interview he asks me scenario questions like what would you do if this happens, asked about how did I handle certain situations in my previous jobs like tell me about a time when x did this and how did you handle it. I passed the phone interview and got offered a 2nd interview which was the computer assessment and in person interview. The computer assessment is pretty easy it was like role play as if you were working there and answering calls. Make your listen because it goes fast and they time you, answer the calls and type in peoples information name, phone number, and address. Help the person figure out there issue, they will give a b c d options to choose from like what you do? a b c or d and choose. After I was done with the assessment I had the person interview and she asked me basic questions. And she hires me on the spot which was nice.

    Difficult Interview

    Uploaded resume, filled out all information, BUT was UNABLE to complete the application process because the "optional tax survey" - for which you must enter your SSN- was in fact not optional as the link to opt out does not work.

    Interview

    They didn’t let us know but it ended up being a group interview and not everyone was applying for the same job although there was some overlap. We introduced ourselves and were asked a few questions. It took a little over an hour.

    Interview

    The interview process isn’t too bad however it is usually a group interview. Everyone in the group is usually applying for different positions. It can be intimidating but just be prepared to stand out from the crown.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Bloomingdale's.

    Interview

    The first interview was over the phone and I noticed I was put on speaker (which I totally dislike because you cannot hear the person as clear as possible), but overall: it was okay. The interviewer asked few generic questions. The first interview lasted around 15-20 minutes.
