    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Boy Scouts of America (Saint Louis, MO).

    Interview

    HORRIBLE!! DO NOT INTERVIEW WITH THIS COMPANY.. After four seperate interviews and a background check......only to be told they are going with someone else via US MAIL!!! Spent hours of time on a field interview only to not be given the position. What a waist of time. I believe it is racial discrimination as I am a Black male with a college degree in St.Loui MO.
