    Co Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Irving, TX
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Irving, TX
    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Pet Supplies Plus in August 2014.

    Interview Details

    I was contacted by a head hunter for the company which was a 2 hour phone interview that I passed next was another phone interview with the business partner. The final step was with the district manager who made it painfully obvious he was not interested in what I had to offer. I later found out it was because of the company I come from which is Target. I was blown away from the waste of time and discrimination these people put me through.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Pet Supplies Plus in November 2013.

    Interview Details

    I applied for the position online, and was called about 3 weeks after doing so. I got called in to do an interview, which was the most unprofessional experience I have ever been to. We were standing up the whole time, and one of the interviewers halfway through. The questions were ridiculous, and the interviewer who stayed put asked the questions from a sheet that he had over his face, so he wasn't even making eye contact with me. They asked questions that you would only have known if you already started working there (they did not specify that you needed pet knowledge prior to being hired, and even when I have been there as a customer, the sales people had no idea how to help me, so there is obviously not a good training period either). By the end of the interview the manager who left came back in and said "did I miss anything?". Yes you did, my whole interview. The bottom line is that the people were miserable and unprofessional

    Interview Questions
    • Some "for instance" questions were asked, but he did not read them as "this happens, what would you say?" He just made a statement and stared at me. One was " A woman is buying litter, and is undecided. Clump or non-clump" ..."just say anything." Then, "she buys the one brand." It was all over the place.   Answer Question

    Interview Details

    I went online to fill out the application and go through a process of personality evaluations and simulations. Then I was called in, talked a bit with the manager, and they called me back for a drug test. That's when they gave me my shirt, had me work half a shift, and welcomed me aboard.

    Pet Care Specialist Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 8 weeksinterviewed at Pet Supplies Plus.

    Interview Details

    I applied for the job on Indeed.com they called me about two weeks after the initial application. I had to drive an hour one way to my interview and they wanted to interview me twice, even though the position I was interviewing for was filled before my second interview.
    The management was very disorganized and the store manager and district manager both told me different things. I had to wait 6 weeks after my second interview and interviewed closer to my home for the final interview. I was offered a job other than the one I applied for.

    Interview Questions
    • None of the questions were difficult. I'm not really sure what they look for when they interview.   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    They gave no opportunity to negotiate. I was told that I was being hired for a full-time position and that I would be making more than at my old job with the same title. They avoided any negotiations until after I was hired and I received and e-mail telling me that I would be making minimum wage. After I actually started work I found out that my job was not full-time either.
