    Human Resources Assistant Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Bastrop, TX
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview


    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Corrections Corporation of America (Bastrop, TX) in July 2015.


    Poor credit? Don't waste your time! I applied online. Had an over the phone interview AND an in person interview. Waited and waited only to receive a "thanks, but no thanks email" with no further explanation as to why I was not chosen. Same thing at another facility, except, this time, they called back before the in person interview and said that my CREDIT SCORE was not good enough to come in for the in person interview. What in the world? If I have a job I could pay all of my BILLS ON TIME!

    Interview Questions

    • Doesn't matter. They only care about your credit score apparently. I have a 4 year degree.   Answer Question
