Pilot Flying J Purposely Lies to ITS Applicants Interview

Pilot Flying J Purposely Lies to ITS Applicants
Dallas, TX

I applied through a recruiter and the process took a day - interviewed at Pilot Flying J in January 2014.

Interview Details – I received an invite to go to a Pilot Flying J job fair and interview event in Dallas, Texas. The invite was very specific, stating they were hiring for managers, co-managers, and shift leaders. Coming from a management background, I attended the interview/job fair with great intentions. However, the recruiting manager quickly informed me they were NOT HIRING for any management/leadership positions. Instead, they wanted hourly floor workers to run all night shifts and holidays. There is no reason to mislead applicants like this, except to get better qualified people in hopes that they are desperate. Pilot Flying J is preying on the unemployed and trying to take advantage of their situations. This was not a mistake and I have the proof in form of my formal invite. Do not be fooled like I was, this company is unprofessional at best. Thank you for wasting my time and lying to me (and several other applicants) Pilot Flying J!

Interview Question – The first questions I was asked was how much money I make now....   Answer Question

Reason for Declining – They lied about the positions being offered, and therefore the pay was way too low.
