    Application Details

    I applied through other source. The process took 3 daysinterviewed at Barbizon in September 2014.

    Interview Details

    I applied for the position via email and received a call on the next business day with a few brief questions and a job offer. The recruiter was quick and seemed very desperate. She even told me I was on the VIP list since I had attended the school. Recruiter said I had a little time to make my decision and was going to send me more information and photos of the events in an email that would make me change my mind and want to work for them. Call, interview, and job offer took no more than 10 minutes.

    A few minutes later I received an email with no subject, no body, no signature. The recruiter sent me 19 recap photos of the events which generally consisted of about 4 teenagers and two ladies in their mid to late 40's posing at a mall (some in front of Barbizon's promo table). My gut said no but, I figured I'd try and negotiate the rate that was offered which was: $330 for the entire weekend. Hours offered were Fri 3-9, Saturday 1130-9, Sun 1230-6. 2 entire weekends mandatory per month.

    Here are some of the email responses I received during the process.

    RESPONSE (copied from email):

    RESPONSE (copied from email):

    (***this is less than 24 hours of the interview***)

    RESPONSE (copied from email):

    Reasons for Declining

    Worked with the company as a teacher for a few weeks in 2012 and remembered why I quit in the first place. Don't want to sell kids and parents false hope. This was strike three. I'll never return. Sad company needs a complete revamp.
