    Recruiter Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Phoenix, AZ
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Goodwill in December 2013.

    Interview Details

    Was called for an interview with a manager named Angelek Larkins here in Phoenix Arizona. Interview went awesome and I was told I was everything they were looking for and got an offer on the spot. I was thrilled! I heard the company was amazing, and I really believed in their mission. I was ready to start and give 200% effort to this non-profit!

    However, when a week passed by and I had not heard anything, my excitement quickly fleeted. I called Angelek, left several voicemails, left messages with the secretary; and never got any response at all. . .Not even an email. In addition it was 2 weeks before Christmas, I thought I nailed the perfect job. That all really added insult to injury. Was one of the most depressing experiences of my life honestly.

    I am a dedicated leader and I would have been one of the best employees they ever had because I believe in people, and their mission. I'm disappointed in Goodwill if that's how they treat people, so now even if I was offered a job there I really wouldn't be inclined to take the offer.

    Got called in for an interview and met with the store manager. She asked me some basic questions that you get asked on interviews. We had some small/personal talk during the interview.
