    Accepted Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Carson's (Merrillville, IN) in December 2016.

    Interview

    Schedules for an interview when the job was already filled so that they could toss me into a group interview for floor clothing folders. Most of the offers were for part time even though they all say full time. Description of job title is not what your actually being paid for. Very disappointed.
