    Sales Representative Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Tiffany & Co..

    Interview

    Horrible, it was all automated. First during the application process online they made me complete a personality test that took over 40 minutes. One week later I got contacted to do a video interview. I had to dress up and answer questions and was not given enough time to think to answer them as I was being recorded. There was practice questions, but none of them were actually the real ones.

    I have an MBA, 15 years of sales experience and extensive experience selling jewelery and apprasing high end jewelery. I was not even given the opportunity to have a face to face interview.

    Store Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in New York, NY (US)
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Tiffany & Co. (New York, NY (US)).

    Interview

    The hiring process had 5 steps/stages and it took about to 2 weeks to complete.
    That included an online application, 2 online questionaries , online interview, phone interview and interview in person.
    The communication was alive throughout the process until the last stage. They neither called nor emailed back with the outcome of the hiring process. After almost 2 weeks of waiting, I emailed to follow up. The position was filled and I was offered to apply for the Sales professional position...? I was applying and interviewing for the management.
    The online part of the process was fantastic experience, especially an online interview. However, the way the company handles the follow up and communication with the candidates leaves much to be desired.

    Sales Professional Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Edmonton, AB (Canada)
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5+ months. I interviewed at Tiffany & Co. (Edmonton, AB (Canada)) in December 2014.

    Interview

    There were long periods of no information from Tiffany. I was diligent following up.
    The store Sales Manager, Assistant Manager and Store Director were professional, kind and knowledgeable about the retail industry.

    I had a final interview with a temporary HR representative: Laura Carter (the main HR rep was away or on vacation?). I think that Laura made up her mind not to hire me before she called me. Ms. Carter asked if I had any further questions. At that point, I let her know that I am very competitive when it comes to sales. I asked if I am able to check other associates sales results because my goal would be to have top sales. Laura said that I cannot check other associates sales results and she shut me down abruptly. After 5.5 month of interviews with Tiffany it was disappointing that Laura could not schedule 10 minutes to speak with me.

    The Store Director said I would be hired, then I followed up for 1 month after, and the Store Manager finally admitted that I would not be hired.

    I pushed for a yes/ or no answer, because I had invested 5 months of interviews, and I still wanted to still be able to enjoy my Tiffany jewelry. (With no answer at all-I knew I couldn't do that). I would have respected a straight forward no answer.
    Now, I will never shop there again. Also, some of the managers at my former Company said they would never work for Tiffany, no matter how much they paid. (Unfortunate. Since all the other manager knew me as the girl that loves everything Tiffany.)

    My advice to management is: if you know a candidate would be great- fight for them. Also, if one HR rep disagrees, then obtain a second HR opinion. Also, HR should schedule 10-15 minutes for a candidate that has been interviewing for nearly 6 months-and has been a loyal Tiffany Customer for years.

    Seasonal Sales Professional Interview

    Neutral Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Tiffany & Co. (Los Angeles, CA (US)) in October 2012.

    Interview

    Very Long Interview. They are very personable in the interview process. They want to know about you because you will be representing 176 year history of the company. My interview was pover and hours. Then I was asked to come back and interview again. I was the only person who was kept in my store after the seasonal period had ended.

    Interview Questions

    • Why do you want to work here? What does Tiffany & Co. mean to you? how would you handle certain situations?   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    They are not really open to negotiation when you are a seasonal because they have people lined out the door looking for a job there.

    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Tiffany & Co. (Honolulu, HI (US)) in June 2019.

    Interview

    Interviewed with 3 managers. Asked me a lot of questions which is great but despite my proven sales performance and experience they were more interested in whether or not I spoke Japanese or Chinese. So aggravating.

    Director, Talent Management Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate

    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Tiffany & Co..

    Interview

    I applied on LinkedIn and received a message that was rather embedded in my emails that I had to complete a 30 minute Video Taped Interview via computer that would be passed around to various departments. My session had 2 tech gliches and 1 question wasn't answered. I never heard back either way. The questions were quite specific and even though I am a 20+ year veteran there was one about a specific methodology that I had to quickly look up (they give you 50 seconds....)
