    Good pay. Plenty of hours.

    Lack of management interaction with employees and a disconnect that leads to unrealistic expectations.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    More of an understanding of what employees deal with in the day to day would be beneficial.

    Customer Service Representative Interview

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took a weekinterviewed at W.B. Mason in October 2014.

    Interview Details

    I was scheduled for an interview at the Hauppauge NY branch at 8:00am after having a phone interview with a representative in the main branch. I arrived at the branch location 10 minutes early and was greeted by an employee who told me my interviewer hasn't arrived yet. I was asked to wait in the entrance way for a couple of minutes. 8:10AM rolls by and no one has come to meet with me. 8:20AM and still no one. By now I would've expected the first employee to come back and give me an update or at least check on me and apologize for the wait. By 8:30AM I just walked out the door and left. I had to leave by 8:45AM to get to my current job on time and I didn't think 15 minutes was anywhere near appropriate for an interview if she did show up. I would've went looking for someone to help me, but in the next room they were having a big meeting and I didn't want to interrupt. It was a completely inappropriate place for a meeting anyway as going through that room was the only way to get to anywhere else in the building. Employees were even blocking the door as they all stood around listening about furniture sales. Although it wasted my time, it showed me that I would never want to work for a company like this. The whole building looked run down anyway and the entrance way they had me wait in was freezing cold, no heat. Please take all the negative reviews on this company to heart. I dismissed them and thought I would have to see for myself, but if they treat a potential employee like this I can't imagine how they treat their actual employees.
