    Operations Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Gaithersburg, MD
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Gaithersburg, MD
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took a weekinterviewed at 1-800-GOT-JUNK? in February 2014.

    Interview Details

    I applied online for Operations Manager and they called within a few days. The telephone interview went well so I was asked to come in for a "real" interview. When I got there I was told that the position I had applied for, Operations Manager, was not available but they would consider me for a Truck Team Member at half the salary we had talked about for the Ops position. I figured why not, I need a job so I said OK. I was told to accept the position in writing via email. I did that the same day. A few days later they responded that all positions had been filled. This was the first time I was ever declined after accepting an offer. Something made me suspicious of them from the beginning. I don't think they value the truth. It's like when a salesman says, "Trust me," you know not to trust them.

    Interview Questions
    • They put me on the spot to give a short presentation based on a short video that I had been shown and what I knew about the company.   View Answer
    Negotiation Details
    After being told the original job I applied for was not available and being offered a lower-paying job and accepting that offer I was told the position was not available and thanks for my time. Nothing like this has ever happened to me in over 30 years in the job force. I wouldn't trust these guys.
