    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Blinds to Go (Troy, MI).

    Interview

    Felt more like an interrogation than interview! They have NO problem asking hard, personal & sometimes what seemed inappropriate questions! But after being employed with BTG for a while it all made sense! BTG invests in new employees from the start! Sending them to BTG "University" in Montreal Quebec for 1 week PAID training. Hotel, air & transportation all provided by the company! At the end of the day none of it really mattered because employees dropped like flies regardless!

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Blinds to Go (Paramus, NJ).

    Interview

    I had a phone interview with the recruiter for Blinds to Go. It went pretty fast and straight forward and she also gave me information about where and when my in-person interview was going to be.

    During my in person interview with the store manager there, I also met the training manager and the new employees being trained under her. Everyone was nice and friendly and I felt comfortable in this type of job environment. I basically shadowed them for about half hour until the store manager brought me into another room to conduct the interview. This is where it went downhill even though at first we connected and I did feel like I was comfortable. She threw a lot of curveballs at me but they had nothing to do with my experience and background and maybe why I would be a good fit in the company. She was asking me questions about my job search and the positions I was applying for which again what does that have to do with me succeeding as a design consultant? I did tell her my current position being a seller at a retail store and how I achieved my accomplishments but she was more concerned about where else I was looking for work and the key words I was typing while doing that. She then set me up with a final interview with the recruiter that I spoke to on the phone.

    During my final interview with the recruiter, the same thing was happening. She was more concerned with where and how I was applying to jobs instead of focusing more on testing my knowledge on selling for the company and learning as much as possible. After the interview was done, she was going to make a decision and then contact me to let me know whether or not I got the position, but I was never contacted ever again.

    Interview

    The company seems cool overall..I went to to one of the stores for a visit and that went great,had a phone interview and that went well also,had a 1 on 1 interview with a recruiter and that went excellent..when I had my last interview the manager told me to my face I wouldn't fit in with their company standards,I was judged on not remembering the meaning of my first name,he crossed out my first name and wrote it out the way he wanted to on my resume,told me there's no such thing as bad management,didn't believe my story to why I wanted to leave my current employer,kept looking out the door to stare at the receptionist and told me to my face I can't take criticism without even knowing me..that made me look at the whole company in a whole new perspective and if you really look at this situation it's a form of discrimination..let me add..the whole interview was very unprofessional and no he wasn't another race..never have I experienced something like this and I hope this doesn't happen to another person again..I actually tried to reach out to someone to discuss it and I was ignored

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Blinds to Go (Everett, MA) in November 2012.

    Interview

    The found my resume online. Called me in to go see the store. Manager asked me illegal questions regarding my age and ethnic background. Called me back in to meet with both HR people. Kept asking illegal interview questions. They didn't like it when I asked them questions about working 10 hour days or having to clean the bathrooms.

    It seems to me that they only want to hire people who are in their twenties and straight out of college.
