    Visual Merchandising Supervisor Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Merrillville, IN
    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.

    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Carson's (Chicago, IL) in April 2010.

    Interview

    the interview process was very long and tedious. appeared to be a good position but turned out i was asking for too much money. three interviews and 5 weeks later i got a call saying that they were hiring someone else who was willing to take lower pay. advice: dont highball them when it comes to salary if you really want the job because they will not negotiate instead just hire the next guy for min wage.
