    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Holt Renfrew in November 2019.

    Interview

    Very fun, nice managers. Although somewhat length, because it involves three managers. Overall very good experience. The interviews were very informative because the managers give you information about what it is like working for them.

    Manager Interview

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Holt Renfrew (Toronto, ON).

    Interview

    The whole process took 3 months, during which I was contacted a few times saying that they’re busy but still interested and that they really enjoyed meeting with me. After the long wait and high hopes brought on by the communication with them, they went with someone else. Next time if you’re looking for a candidate, please don’t keep them hanging for this long, that’s very unprofessional.

    Cosmetics Counter Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Holt Renfrew.

    Interview

    There was two in person interviews, and a phone interview.

    The interviews themselves were a little awkward, and in the back room of the building.

    The phone interview seemed like the woman was distracted with something else and not very interested in hearing my answers at all.

    I felt like they were more interested in finding out how my current employer does business than in my experience as a manager, my sales growth, targets, sales or makeup artistry experience. I wasn't asked any questions regarding motivating or incentivizing a team.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Holt Renfrew in February 2019.

    Interview

    Did a first round interview and was called in for a second interview. The interviewer really liked me and I thought I was a shoo in for the job. Never heard back two weeks after so I called my interviewer and found out the reason she dropped me if because I interviewed with a different department simultaneously without telling her, and I was "lying by omission".

    I'm sorry, what...people will apply to every posting they see and it's not the candidates fault multiple departments want to interview them, it just means they're a competitive candidate. Guess not, interviewer was petty and started victimizing and made me feel like I was in the wrong.. when this is a problem on their end and they should have coordinated this amongst themselves...

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Holt Renfrew (Mississauga, ON) in February 2019.

    Interview

    lots of interview and they ask the similar questions all the time. Do not recommend this company, I don’t think they show the respect to the indicates because there are at least 3 interviews and they won’t even give you a response if they don’t want to hire you. Then why there are four interview and it took me a whole month ? Waste of time. Also, it took around 30 minutes for each interview. However, they just ask the similar questions every interview.
