    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Coborn's (Saint Joseph, MN) in July 2017.

    Interview

    The interviewer was a wise woman, and asked intelligent and good questions of me. She was open to hearing me out about everything. The onboarding process was a little difficult for me, but the computer glitch was from their end, not mine. Otherwise, it was topnotch!

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at Coborn's.

    Interview

    Was given an interview through recruiter for contract. Talked to the manager. She was very friendly and

    Was told by manager that they usually hire the contractor within 3 months. Was given a tour of the facility in Twin Cities. Their main office I think was in St Cloud or Duluth.

    She only asked one technical question which I stumble on, but I think she worded it different. It was about DMZ. Other questions asked like background and why you want the position. Every interview will have these.

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Coborn's (Saint Cloud, MN) in October 2014.

    Interview

    Pre-screened by HR. Personality profile quiz, math test. Interview with department manager.
    The process was super simple overall. Availability is key, if you are able to work less desirable shifts even one per week it is almost an instant hire. Both the HR representative and the manager were extremely laid back and friendly.

    Baker Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    No Offer
    Negative Experience

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Coborn's.

    Interview

    I had applied online. About two weeks passed by the time I had gotten a call. I completed the phone interview and the manager told me that he was going to set up an in-person interview and call me back in the next few days about when would be a good time for both of us. (I am a full time high school student.) The manager and I played phone tag for a few weeks. He would always call me when I was at school. I had to go into the store and request him. When I finally got a hold of him he had told me that the position he had told me was open had been filled. He then said that he would call me sometime that week to talk about a cashier position. That was almost a year ago and I never got a call.
