    Administrative Coordinator Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Chicago, IL
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Empire Today (Chicago, IL) in May 2017.

    Interview

    I was called for what should have been a phone screen, only asked if I was still interested & my acceptable pay range. I was then asked about an interview for the the very next day, I let her know I was not available until Friday, I could however have a Skype or FaceTime interview with her. She said "it's not that serious" we can do a phone interview tomorrow 8:30am. Never sent a phone interview confirmation email either, which was bad because later after I'd talked with her a appointment cancelled & I could have made an in person interview the next day.

    Never called,no email nothing. Very disrespectful of my time & now I wouldn't even consider them as a serious employer due to her unprofessional attitude & conduct.

    Associate Interview

    Neutral Experience

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at Empire Today (Northlake, IL) in March 2017.

    Interview

    Was contacted directly from the recruiter via Indeed, phone screen with him and did an interview with the manager and admin specialist- both were cool and easy Interview . I enjoyed the lighting round questions - maybe that was the behavioral questions as stated that I would be asked?
    Location was eh for me especially when trucks are backing up or about to when you try to enter only to have to turn around to convenience them to get into the tight one way parking lot. Receptionist wasn't exactly enthusiastic or as professional , but was decent. I already didn't want the job once I got to the parking lot when I arrived , but decided to go do the interview anyways which ended up being an easy going one. But never received a courtesy notice that I wasn't selected for the position , as like other companies nowadays even after you had to get out of work early and hike a commute to it.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Empire Today (Charlotte, NC).

    Interview

    fun and exciting interview. The Empire Today LLC in Charlotte is a great environment when I walked in the door. The manager asked questions that related to the industry I was already in , and then was able to spin my past experiences as advantage for this industry. Unfortunately, I haven't heard back from the recruiter nor the Manager. The interview went very well and I am kind of surprised not to hear back .

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Empire Today (Northlake, IL) in December 2016.

    Interview

    I applied online and was contacted by the recruitment manager via email to come onsite the next week for an interview. I met with the recruitment manager and supervisor, after that I met with two other members of the team the hr coordinator and another recruiter. I thought the interview went well and was told I would hear from them within the next week. As a common courtesy I sent a thank you email to both the supervisor and manager and never heard back from them. A month later you would think they would have had the decency and intelligence to at least respond back to the email and say thank you for your time but we decided to go in another direction with the position but I received no feeback what so ever. I feel this was very rude and unprofessional of both the recruitment manager and supervisor.

    Also all of there recruiters are hired as contractors they do not hire on a perm basis when you first come on board. Pay scale seems to be low for contractors as well.

    District Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Valrico, FL
    No Offer
    Negative Experience

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Empire Today (Valrico, FL) in November 2016.

    Interview

    I was interviewed by HR originally and called in for a face to face interview. The Regional Manager (Mr. Meehan)was a experienced guy and he asked the right questions. He seemed like someone I'd enjoy working with. Then.... I was brought to a second interview with a female (can't remember her name). She made it very clear she's from NY City and she's important. During the interview she was checking her phone, texting and answered two phone calls during the interview. She kept telling me how busy she is and how she's traveling all over setting up new branches in JC Penney.... Needless to say it was the most unprofessional interview I've ever witnessed. Ultra aggressive attitude and a bad listener. Exactly who I DONT want to work for.

    Human Resources Interview

    Negative Experience

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at Empire Today.

    Interview

    The interview wasn't the bad part- it was how they handled everything after the fact. There were about 4 HR representatives reaching out to me at a time all saying different things. One HR lady reached out to me and said they'd like to place me somewhere after my interview, but then never got back to me and that they decided to move in another direction. Weeks later, ANOTHER HR representative Reached out to me about another position and had no idea that I had already interviewed there. Their HR department is incredibly unorganized and unprofessional. The whole experience was just weird. I even had a rep add me on facebook.
