    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Acosta in March 2017.

    Interview

    Long and drawn out, hard to know what to make of it. It's an odd culture that doesn't seem to be overly transparent. The whole thing felt a bit off and intimidating.

    Very thorough and professional. They will make you feel very important and like you belong to the company before you even begin working for them. Ensure that you have an updated resume because they will ask you about your past employment and what you have to offer to their company. They will make you feel comfortable before, during, and after your interview.

    Category Analyst Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Rogers, AR
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Acosta (Rogers, AR) in October 2016.

    Interview

    Received call from HR setting up interview in Rogers location. Met with hiring manager and his boss. Thought interview went well - was asked very ambiguous sales questions. Was told they would make a decision by the end of the week (interviewed on a Monday) and let me know. Sent Thank You follow up e-mails and never heard back. Very unprofessional-like process. Called corporate HR multiple times to get update on process and was never called back. Although I didn't get the role, I realized I didn't want to work for a company that doesn't treat people right. Hiring managers never got back after multiple attempts to contact.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Acosta.

    Interview

    Got an email referral from the guy and applied online. Then did a phone screening. The next two days I did an initial phone interview and then they day after that I was offered the job and I accepted. I filled out the background check but it was really difficult to get my addresses lined up properly and the background check went through. The next week I got an email for. HR saying that I didn't meet company standards, whatever the he'll that means. And so I tried to email HR with the address the sent me and it wouldn't go through. Don't know why I have no criminal history or anything of the sorts so it doesn't make sense....

    Reasons for Declining

    The human resources said my background check didn't meet company standards even though I was offered a position. No clue why and I couldn't email human resources to figure it out. Has anyone else had this problem?
