Application

I applied in-person. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Pottery Barn (Cranston, RI) in Oct 2017

Interview

Too long! I had to go back 3 times for interviews to be hired as a seasonal worker. I think the problem was that the management staff just doesn't communicate with each other.

Interview Questions
  • Mostly asked about availability hours, with less emphasis on design.

Application

I applied in-person. The process took 4 days. I interviewed at Pottery Barn in Dec 2014

Interview

I saw an ad on Craigslist from Pottery Barn that said they were hiring, I went into the store the next day and filled out an application, they called me the next day to schedule an interview. The interview was very laid back, the manager only asked me a few questions, it felt like more of a conversation than an interview.

Interview Questions
  • The only 3 questions the manager asked were what is your definition of customer service and what do I have to add to it, and why pottery barn?

I interviewed at Pottery Barn

Interview

I interviewed twice, once in a group setting on the sales floor. After that basic interview, we toured the store and stockroom. I got called again, to interview individually with the manager and after they contacted all of my professional references, I was hired. They want employees who are passionate about the brand and are quick movers! The questions were basic, why was I interested in working for PB? So I multitask well? Eyc

Interview Questions
  • How would you handle the stockroom if you are getting called for stock checks, receiving orders and have multiple special orders to call all at the same time?

I applied in-person. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Pottery Barn (Chandler, AZ) in Nov 2014

Interview

It was supposed to be a one on one interview, but with the time squeeze, it turned into a group Interview. It was only two of us being interviewed at the same time, but it was a little difficult trying to both answer to our full potential.

I applied in-person. I interviewed at Pottery Barn

Interview

Walked into store to request an application, filled it out, and manager immediately scheduled interview for the following week. I was hired a week after the interview. The interview was easy and it felt like talking to a friend about why I loved the store and why I wanted to work there.

Interview Questions
  • I wasn't asked any specific questions that I can remember. It was more of a conversation where the manager and I were mutually assessing each other. She seemed friendly and nice. I'm a hard worker and always give 100% so I wasn't too worried about any questions.
