    Interview

    I applied online (indeed I think) and got called in for an interview maybe 4-5 days later. I came in and the manager walked me around and told me what my duties would consist of. Then we went in his office and I filled out a paper application. He gave me a background check paper and a location to go take a drug test the next day, I brought the papers back completed the following day. I got a call 4ish days later telling me I was approved and to come in for training.

    Employment Specialist Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Woodstock, GA
    Declined Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Goodwill (Woodstock, GA) in June 2017.

    Interview

    The Internal Talent Acquisitions Specialist of North Atlanta is very unprofessional. When she called me initially to inquire more about my interest of the position, she was doing a lot of self talk while her computer stalling, and she was rude. She did not have a professional verbal communication, and also did not know any information about the position itself. I actually declined coming in for an interview just based on her because of her bad attitude and felt she is a negative reflection of the company; I didn't want to get involved with that type of mentality.

    Reasons for Declining

    unprofessional Internal Talent Acquisitions Specialist of North Atlanta and she left a bad taste in my mouth
