    Management Trainee Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Bridgestone Retail Operations in August 2017.

    Interview

    Phone interview, area manager, store manager, then another store manager interview all over one week. Easy interview questions, nothing in depth asked. The worst part was being sent to another town for an interview (by mistake) and the area manager didn't even know I was coming. I waited almost 2 hours to speak.
     Then a few days later, I get sent to store manager on site, and he asked why I wasn't there two days previous. I wasn't there...because the recruiter sent me somewhere else, (by email)
     After phone screen, three in person interviews...I heard NOTHING...for days. I finally contacted recruiter and got a "we're moving on with other candidates" email. Wasted three days of my time.
    And it's NOT 55K a year..it's more like a $13 an hour..

    Interview

    Phone Interview and Online Video Interview, pretty simple and straightforward, the recruiters are very nice and accomodating. The online interview is very tough because questions pop up and you only have 3 minutes to answer while looking at a video of yourself which is disorienting.
