    Training Manager-Vorstellungsgespräch

    Bewerbung

    Ich habe mich online beworben. Der Vorgang dauerte 5 Wochen. Vorstellungsgespräch absolviert im Februar 2018 bei Pet Food Express (Oakland, CA (Vereinigte Staaten von Amerika)).

    Vorstellungsgespräch

    The phone interview turned out to be a ten minute marketing survey rather than an interview. I was never asked about my background or skills, no job related questions. The recruiter's only questions were about my shopping habits for buying pet food. When I told her I don't currently have a pet, she didn't seem to listen and continued asking questions like, "where do you buy your dog or cat food?" What kinds of pet food and supplies do you buy and where?, Why do you buy your pet food at a particular store?"

    At the end of her marketing survey, I tried asking about the position but she replied I would have a chance to ask questions during the second interview.

    The interview seemed like a deceptive attempt to collect marketing data. They didn't seem to care what skills I could bring to the role.

    The application process was easy, I applied on Monday, I got call on Tuesday and had phone interview on Wednesday.

    This was my first phone interview, I was not prepared for the phone interview. I was nervous and unprepared. I am not a phone person.

    The recruiter asked simple questions some personal and some related to the job.

    Assistant Manager-Vorstellungsgespräch

    Anonymer Mitarbeiter in San Carlos, CA (Vereinigte Staaten von Amerika)
    Angebot angenommen
    Positive Erfahrung
    Leichtes Gespräch

    Bewerbung

    Ich habe mich online beworben. Der Vorgang dauerte 5 Wochen. Vorstellungsgespräch absolviert im April 2012 bei Pet Food Express (San Carlos, CA (Vereinigte Staaten von Amerika)).

    Vorstellungsgespräch

    I file the job application on their website, got a call from Group Manager in 2 days. Then We set up 1:1 interview with her in 3 days. The interview was easy, more or less like chatting with friends for me. We talked about past work experience, and what kind of pet experience you have. She also asked about what's expectations and sample would I set for employees. Anyways, its was a really easy and comfortable interview for me, a very pleasant experience. Then I got a call from the other group manager the very next day. He set up another 1:1 interview with me the next week. It went pretty good as well, again its like chatting and telling my stories and experience. Then I got another interview with District Manager in after 3 weeks. That took a long time to wait, I almost thought I didn't get the job. Its turns out that the DM was on vacation XD. So, I went to their HQ in Oakland, for the last interview with the DM, again it is overall are very easy going conversations during the whole interview. They are all very friendly and lay back. I got the job offer within in a week, they called me and told me which store will I be working and also the hourly rate.

    Overall, I'd say it was a very pleasant experience for me through out the interview process. I would only say, it took a bit long for me, since the DM was on vacation, but the 2 GMs who interviewed me, they constantly keep me in touch every week, and make sure I knew that I was still on the list. However, I got the job as Assistant Store Manager instead of Store Manager, which I am still very happy about it. I know I didn't have much experience in Management, was never in Manager position, so I think assistant manager would be a good approach for me.

    Assistant Manager-Vorstellungsgespräch

    Durchschnittl. Gespräch

    Bewerbung

    Ich habe mich persönlich beworben. Der Vorgang dauerte 2 Wochen. Vorstellungsgespräch absolviert im Dezember 2013 bei Pet Food Express (Novato, CA (Vereinigte Staaten von Amerika)).

    Vorstellungsgespräch

    It's a pretty intense interview. I had two, one with a district manager and a store manager. Then another with a different district manager. Everyone was nice, the interviews were very pleasant and very thorough. PFE's culture is very specific, and only a specific type of person will really thrive in their environment. So they have to be sure that they're picking the right people.

    Fragen im Vorstellungsgespräch

    • What your work experience is? How would you handle difficult situations? Do you have any animal or pet experience? What's your favorite color? (No, seriously, this was an interview question. They do it just for fun.)   Frage beantworten

    Vorstellungsgespräch

    I originally interviewed for Manager in Training with the District Manager and the Store Manager. It was pretty relaxed, they spent a lot of time filling me in on the position and telling me about the company. They asked me about my previous experience, but spent most of the time telling me how they did things, and I had to interject that I did similar things before at my old job. They also spent time saying how difficult it was to go in straight as a Store Manager, and it is easier to get hired lower and work your way up, but they said they don't really have a great promotion program. They asked if would be interested in interviewing for Assistant Manager instead. It was another week until I interviewed with the Group manager and store manager for another location. They asked me what my weaknesses are, and they really wanted to get a sense of me personally. They also really stressed being a LEADER as opposed to just being a manager and want to know that you are a team player. It was over all pretty easy, it was just like having a conversation and they were pretty relaxed and easy going people. It seems like they are just looking for enthusiastic and up beat people who can work on a team.

    Ich habe mich online beworben. Der Vorgang dauerte mehr als 4 Wochen. Vorstellungsgespräch absolviert im April 2015 bei Pet Food Express (El Cerrito, CA (Vereinigte Staaten von Amerika)).

    Vorstellungsgespräch

    I interviewed with the store manager and the group manager. The first interview went good because I got passed along to the district manager. I interviewed with the DM on April 27, I thought the interview went well considering, she stated that she liked me and would reach out to me to know the next steps in the process. Then I received an auto generated email on April 29 stating that: Unfortunately, after careful review of our needs we are unable to accommodate you at this time.

    Vorstellungsgespräch

    I received an email within a week of submitting my online application. Although they usually have two separate interviews with the District Manager and Group Manager, they both were able to come in the same day, so I had one interview with both. They later sent me an online form to fill in for my references and said they will be in touch within a week depending on how quickly my references respond.

    Vorstellungsgespräch

    I applied online to a few locations, 2 days later I get a call asking me some questions and then I set up an in-person interview.

    The whole interview was going well until the end. They said I was not qualified or a good fit for the assistant manager role because of my sales experience. The thing is, they ONLY asked me about my sales experience. They did not ask me about my customer service skills or management skills. They asked me if I was interested in a retail associates role and I declined. "But you have so much experience in sales" which I replied, I don't want to be in sales. They also had the audacity to tell me not to leave so quickly and to shop around. The most awkward interview and I'm pretty sure they were racist. As a POC, these 2 managers that interviewed me were white. As I was looking at the employees, the retail sales associates were POC including 2 black employees and 1 latina. A waste of time.
