    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks - interviewed 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.
