From initial phone interview to hearing an official offer was about 2 weeks.

    Retail Project Merchandiser Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Fort Wayne, IN
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Fort Wayne, IN
    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took a dayinterviewed at Advantage Sales and Marketing in July 2014.

    Interview Details

    Interview was virtually non-existent. The area supervisor told me what area was open. It is about 35 miles from where I live (one way). I'll give it a month or so, but with the price of gasoline, and no mileage reimbursement, hopefully something closer might open up in a few weeks.

    Negotiation Details
    The recruiter told me in preliminary phone interview that the rate of pay was $10 per hour with mileage or $11 per hour with no mileage. Area supervisor said she'd never heard of that. Mileage reimbursement only kicked in AFTER first 40 miles of leaving your home and is excluded with the last 40 miles back to your home.

    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at Advantage Sales and Marketing in July 2014.

    Interview Details

    Most of the information was relayed to online and HR is quite proactive in their hiring process. Since I did a project for them though another firm at $18.00 they realized who I was and my work ethics, so the process was easy. Of course the typical background and drug test are require, since you are in the public view.

    Interview Questions
    • None just simply experience and honestly. This is a self started position they are seeking mature experience individuals. All the people I worked with were very helpful.   View Answer

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Advantage Sales and Marketing.

    Interview Details

    I was offered a position after the 2nd phone interview. All the new hire paperwork was done through their online portal. Trying to get someone to review the I-9 was a nightmare and everyone I spoke to for help told me something different. Many times, no one would respond to my emails.

    Reasons for Declining

    The whole new hire paperwork process was an absolute nightmare. My husband had concerns because the interview with the hiring manager wasn't face to face. The on-line portal housed everything and printing out the information was a challenge. I had major issues with dealing with the I-9 and only had one day to get it reviewed. No one at the main office was helpful. Being so frustrated, I felt it was best I didn't work with this company so I rescinded the job offer.
