    I worked at Coborn's part-time (more than 5 years)


    Company had great values and management was very understanding. Coborn's is a great company to have your first job since management works well around schedules.


    Promotions did not matter that much. Pay raises were very small. After being there for five years I wa not making as much as I thought I should be.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Promotions could be better. Getting a ten cent raise every year makes employees feel as though they are not value

    Positive Outlook

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Coborn's.

    Interview Details

    I applied online using their website. Application was pretty standard, nothing special. Received a call with in a few days to set up a phone interview, after a few days of phone tag we got the interview scheduled. Recruiter called a few minutes late, which was ok, the questions asked were nothing special, just about me background.

    I was given no time to ask anything. Not a thing.

    We asked when I would be available to come in for an in person, I said anytime, but Wednesdays were the hardest, but I could make anything work. He said ok, and repeated my availability and said they were bring people in next week.

    That was the last I have heard from anybody at Coborn's. I have called and just get his voice mail, and no return call. Didn't even get a rejection email, nothing. I could see getting nothing if I had just applied, but after you take your time and interview, they really owe you something, even if it just a form email. But guess Coborn's is to good for that.

    I am very disappointed in Coborn's, I had heard good things about the company, now I tell people what a joke this company truly is.
