I interviewed at Holt Renfrew

Interview

HR called me shortly after applying to discuss the role and team structure. She set up an interview with the hiring manager shortly after. It was a typical interview with hiring manager- asked questions about my experiences, strengths, weaknesses, etc. I was presented an offer the day after my interview. The entire process took just over a week.

Recruiter reached out from Toronto office, then ghosted and never followed up to schedule the interview. I was incredibly excited about the experience, as I am passionate about the company. Horrible experience & probably will never shop there again as a result.

I applied online. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Holt Renfrew

Interview

The interview process was standard - call with HR and then in person interview with the manager. The location of the position was within a shopping mall and seemed like the position would require on-floor/customer facing duties, which wasn’t listed in the job description. The workspace itself seemed like a giant locker room, very dark and just a large open space. Not your typical office space at all. No precautions seem to be taken during COVID. I didn’t even hear back after my interview, which is odd because most companies reach out to provide feedback or simply state the position was given to someone else. Poor communication from HR.

I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Holt Renfrew (Toronto, ON) in Jan 2021

Interview

Applied for the role online, received an email to connect with talent acquisition a month later. Scheduled a phone interview and had a 30 minute discussion with them. Was expecting to talk about my professional experience but instead discussed the general landscape of D&I. I was taken aback when asked about "trends" in Diversity and Inclusion. Talent acquisition member was a little bit more blunt and forward than I expected. When provided the opportunity to ask questions, I had asked what were some of the obstacles that the department/members were facing and their response was "that's for the candidate in this role to tell us". As a follow up I asked what were some of the immediate projects that I would be managing and I received the same answer - for the candidate to identify.

Interview Questions
  • What Diversity and Inclusion trends do you think will happen in 2021?
  • What resources do you use to keep yourself informed and update to date on D&I practices?

I applied through an employee referral The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Holt Renfrew (Mississauga, ON) in Jan 2021

Interview

Slightly informal, I imagine the interview would have went differently if I was a candidate with experience in working retail. It didn't help that we had to do a FaceTime interview because the platform of their choice was not compatible with my laptop. The interview was done with the Department Manager and the Hiring Manager. They were curt and aloof, the questions they asked were generic. It took maybe 15 minutes. I never heard back, not that I was interested anyway. When I asked about additional training and resources I was told that "google is my best friend".
