    Entry Level Management Interview

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at Cornerstone (Metairie, LA) in March 2015.

    Interview

    Short, eye opening, interesting, deceiving, clever, sales pitch, not specific information is provided even when asked for. Received a call back for a second interview at event location to meet with HIRING MANAGER/ event coordinator. Interviewer could not answer me when I asked about benefits available during training period (6-12 months) and said she had never been asked that question before so she didn't know the answer! Other than that she was very well spoken and fast paced ( is observing to see if you can keep up with her- without being directed to). Turns out the positions available with many different names of each position, is an entry level, minimum wage, no benefits, working every single day except for having every other Monday off. You were to set up events (tables, samples, displays) at area SAMs clubs to promote the clients company.
