    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.

    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?

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Acosta.

    Interview

    Easy, just talk and agree to everything. Based on cultural fit, ie. having no strong opinions, and ability to take bad treatment. Office manager is great at interviewing, because more people quit than are hired. Job description is deceptive and inaccurate.

    Retail Service Merchandiser Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Portland, OR
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Acosta (Portland, OR) in July 2016.

    Interview

    I did not have an in-person interview, it was done via the phone. My interview was with an HR person who seemed to be new on the job (he sort of stumbled through the interview) in another city. We spoke 2 times on the phone, first a screening call, second about a 20 minute interview.

    Interview Questions

    • Experience in retail, background, availability, okay with pay, etc. It was incorrectly stated that the pay was going to be $15/hr, but it was backed down to $13. I feel it was an honest error on the interviewer's part. And it was a 20% raise from what I made at that big orange home and hardware store.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    Ah, it's pretty much "here's what the pay is, do you want the job".
