    Business Operations Specialist Interview

    Anonymous Employee

    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 1+ weekinterviewed at McMaster-Carr.

    Interview Details

    I was sent an email from a recruiter stating that they saw my résumé online and wanted to speak about the Business Operations Specialist position. I was extremely excited and really wanted to pursue that opportunity! The recruiter was very friendly and professional. The interview lasted for about 20 to 25 mins. The questions were not that difficult. I did very well and the reason for my negative experience is not based on the recruiter.

    I feel as if I was discriminated against based on race. I feel that way because I did not hear anything back from McMaster Car until they sent me a Voluntary Disclosure email to be filled out. I filled that out only about a few hours ago and that is when I received a rejection email. I really am disappointed that race plays a factor into hiring qualified candidates. It's a despicable practice and I feel as if the line, "Our company is an equal opportunity employer that complies with the Department of Labor’s guidelines for tracking and reporting recruiting activity......Your response is voluntary and will not impact your application for employment.", is a lie. If it does not matter, why ask in the first place? I feel as if they were reviewing candidates for this position and they sent that out with the intentions of weeding out candidates based on race. I did not appreciate it and I hope that they realize that using that method is not effective or ethical.
