Pottery Barn

Anonymous Interview Candidate in Durham, NC

No Offer
Positive Experience
Easy Interview
Application

I applied online. I interviewed at Pottery Barn (Durham, NC) in May 2015

Interview

I met in-person with the General Manager of a Pottery Barn Kids store. The interview went well. It was a mixture of personable getting-to-know you and work history talk. I am waiting to hear back if I will be called in for a second, more formal interview. There were two open positions, and the manager wanted a pool of ten applicants to choose from. We got along great, but it has been a week, so I am getting nervous! I thought it went really well. My only drawback was not having supervisory experience yet, though I am confident I could handle it (and exceed in such a role). I was hoping to work there a year and then transfer into one of the grown-up stores like Pottery Barn or Rejuvenation. But, I am good with kids too, so I am looking forward to working there and getting my start in design and sales.

Application

I applied in-person. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Pottery Barn in Nov 2014

Interview

The interview process started very quickly after my application was submitted and progressed through multiple rounds and managers. Unfortunately a decision was made to not fill the position. Very disappointing and wish that employers would not advertise jobs and put people through an interview process when they did not intend to hire.

Interview Questions
  • Questions were the normal questions one would expect to be asked. Anyone qualified for the position would have no trouble answering the questions asked.

I applied online. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at Pottery Barn in May 2010

Interview

The process was actually quite pleasant and simple. I originally posted my resume on Monster.com and applied for the position based on a search I made. I was contacted by the Store Manager within 24 hours and had an interview setup the next day. The interview took place in one of the seating areas in the mall and many standard questions related to management were asked. I spoke toward my strengths and how I could be different than other candidates. Total interview was over an hour and a half but very relaxed and went by quickly. The Store Manager informed me that she was instructed to select 3 potential candidates for the position to move on to the next phase of the interview process with the District Manager. The next day I was contacted and to my surprise I was told that she (the Store Manager) was instructed after my interview to select one candidate for the next phase and that I was the person she chose. My followup interview was setup for two days later in San Francisco. I arrived early and again to my surprise I was greeted by not only the District Manager, but also the Regional Vice President. I had a very candid interview with both of them as I did prior with the Store Manager. There were not a great deal of questions and I feel they were already informed by the Store Manager that I was the best suited candidate. This interview was about 45 minutes long and I felt no excess pressure because of the strong interview I felt I had with the Store Manager 2 days earlier. We closed the interview with my salary requirements and I left feeling quite good about how the interview went. In a short amount of time (within an hour of leaving the final interview) I got a phone call from my Store Manager congratulating me on being offered the position and securing the salary I had negotiated. All in all from first applying for the position to being offered my job was 5 days.

Interview Questions
  • How as a person who started in Consumer Electronics Retail how I would now fit in a Home/Lifestyle Brand retail environment?
