    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at 1-800 CONTACTS (Draper, UT).

    Interview

    First there is a phone interview that is about 20 minutes long. It consists mostly of the job description, company overview, benefits offered, and finishes with a couple behavioral questions. If you do well, then a face-to-face interview is scheduled. The in-person interview was a tad lengthy - over an hour and a half long - but was enjoyable and engaging. You begin by taking a skill test that tests your knowledge on basic Windows applications and shortcuts as well as utilizing the 1800 Contact website to gather information. That is followed by a simple one paragraph typing test. You then sit in with a current employee that is in the position you are applying for so that you can get a good feel for the position first hand. Afterwards, you get a tour of the beautiful facility. It ends with two face-to-face interviews. The entire process was a very positive experience!

    Interview Questions

    • Most of the questions were based off of my resume and were behavioral type questions being answered in the star format.   Answer Question

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at 1-800 CONTACTS in October 2012.

    Interview

    I was given the opportunity to apply for a position within the company. The recruiter understood that I had another job and that I would need to work around my current schedule. I had interviews at 7 a.m. to accommodate my schedule and was brought back multiple times in order to work around the various time constraints. After multiple interviews, I was offered the position and was given the opportunity to discuss the position and potential change of employment with my spouse. The benefits package was laid out clearly as was the salary.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3+ weeks. I interviewed at 1-800 CONTACTS (Charlotte, NC) in October 2017.

    Interview

    Seems like you need to have no warehouse experience to get a job. I applied and had every qualification, the interview went well. I showed that i was willing to do anything, had a great attitude all the time. At the end i received an email that they went with another more “qualified” candidate. How?! Screw this company.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at 1-800 CONTACTS (Charlotte, NC) in November 2017.

    Interview

    It took me numerous of times to finally get an interview. I have a lot of warehouse experience, RF scanner, picking, packing, shipping and receiving....I thought the interview went well and the person who did my interview asked me if I could start work that Monday and of course I said yes. He told me that the recruiter would give me a call or email that Friday in which I didn't mind because I thought I had the job. In other words she told me that they were bringing 5 people from Utah and she advised me to reapply even the guy who gave my interview. I called the guy who gave my interview and asked what happen, he told me my interview went very well but they went with some one more "better" in which I don't understand what that means if I have all the qualifications. I know you will not get every job you apply for but you can not let people think they have a job and play them like that especially if they have a family or even homeless....Give people a chance, I would have been an awesome worker and I am sure the other people you confused would have been also. Give people in Charlotte NC a chance to show that we are hard workers regardless of someone pass and how would you know if someone is better than me by looking at a resume or even interviewing!!!! Thanks!!!!

    Interview

    Initial phone interview followed by a coding assignment. Took time to finish the assignment and submitted through an email. Utterly disappointed for no feedback on why submission ( why rejected). After spending lot of time to solve the assignment, I would definitely feel that a honest feedback is the least to expect.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at 1-800 CONTACTS (Salt Lake City, UT) in February 2017.

    Interview

    Applied through a referral.

    Received email asking to confirm dates and times through an online calendar. Didn't hear back for a few days and then the recruiter finally confirmed.

    Recruiter called me late and I wasn't able to pick up. I couldn't stay in a private area for 15 minutes at work waiting for the recruiter to finally call. He left a voicemail and I called back.

    He asked chained hypothetical questions such as: If there was a conflict at work and then the results were amazing what would you do differently and what would you say to your boss. Questions similar to those were being asked for 30 minutes and it was pretty ridiculous because he said the interview would only be 10 minutes long. He asked questions about my current workplace as well, how big is your team, how many accounts do you handle, how much do you make, etc. It all came off as industrial espionage so be careful.

    At the end he told me this location is by the airport and in a small warehouse, not the office in draper. He would contact me in no later than 2 days. A week later I received an automated email with my name spelled wrong that they went with someone else.
