    Maintenance Technician Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Wilkes-Barre, PA
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Boscov's (Wilkes-Barre, PA) in March 2017.

    Interview

    Being a disabled vet I applied for the Building Maintenance posting. We set up interview. I was interviewed, told what was expected. They schedule you for another day to fill out new hire paperwork giving you the false expectation of being hired. I had to do a background check and such. I received papers saying a check was done. Called the HR to be polite and see if I could answer any questions but was only given a leave a message option. So I did with no return call. Or even knowing if I was got the job or not. If this is how they treat disabled vets who are looking for a job I can only imagine what it would be like if I was hired.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Boscov's in June 2016.

    Interview

    Filled out online application, yet it also said that you need to fill out an application in the store. The online application said they were hiring for ONLY full time. Went to the store and filled out a paper application; was told I would receive a call if they were interested. About two weeks later, I received a call to come in for an interview. Went in for the interview, had to fill out ANOTHER paper form. Was called in to HR; she looked over my info, asked me maybe one or two questions, said I was what she was looking for and was qualified for the job, but she was interviewing a few other people as well, so she would call me at the end of the week, in the morning, to let me know either way. My interview was at noon and she rushed me out of there so quickly, I got the impression that she just wanted to get to lunch. I waited expectantly on Friday morning; nothing. I do not appreciate my time being wasted, nor do I appreciate being made to believe that I will receive a phone call during a set time and you don't even bother to call. I also find it strange that they lie on their website about hiring full time. You get to the store and it's two full time positions available and everything else part time. But on the website, they claim they're only hiring full time. Bait and switch.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Boscov's (Selinsgrove, PA) in June 2016.

    Interview

    I was emailed and asked to come in for an interview the next day. When I went in she said the department managers were by working and I had to come back the following week. When I came back the following week she told me on the spot I was hired with no interview at all. She gave me a stack of paperwork to fill out and I started work later that day. It was weird.
