Store Manager Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate in New Milford, CT
No Offer
Negative Experience

Application

The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Goodwill (New Milford, CT).

Interview

The Bridgeport CT office interview was the worst experience. After submitting an application for the store manager title, I got an email that it is for a Trainee position. 2ndly, once we setup an appointment and I confirmed it and arrived, I was told HR left because she thought it was for a different time. I called her...no response so then I emailed her saying you told me this time and now they said you were gone and forwarded the email she sent with the time. Funny, she immediately called me back and said "can I turn around and go back she will come back". 3rdly, she apologized but seemed rushed and did not seemed engaged. After the interview she setup me up in the career center to take a test and left me there. To be honest I was turned off by all this at that point.

    Interview

    very informal 10+ years ago it took 30 minutes because they were desperate for managers, today interview process starts sometimes with phone screening all applicants must apply on line , all depends who the DM is , a lot of favoritism going on among DMs if they dont like you they wont hire or promote you

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Goodwill (Kansas City, MO) in February 2016.

    Interview

    They have a rather extensive interview process where you may have to have up to 3 interviews for the position. One with a member of management, the district manager and HR. This process took about 12 days from start to finish before I received the job offer. I personally only met with the district manager and HR but have seen some go through all 3. It mostly consists of standardized questions with a few personality questions about who you are and what are some things you enjoy outside of work.

    Application

    I applied in-person. I interviewed at Goodwill (San Bernardino, CA).

    Interview

    It was not even a process. I knew someone working at goodwill and my friend got me the job. I went to the so called interview, did the so called drug test and got the job

    Negotiation

    I had smoked a drug two days prior and I still passed the joke of a drug screen. The so call first aid team, I guess that's what you call them, didn't even check me to see if I had someone else's urine on me.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at Goodwill (Lufkin, TX) in June 2015.

    Interview

    I met a representative at a job fair and was called for an interview. After the interview I received a call about three days later with an offer to take the position. I was told the District Manager would call me within a few days and I wouldn't start for another two weeks. After that I couldn't get a return phone call from anyone until I contacted the head of HR. I should have seen the how unorganized the company was when they never returned my calls.

    Interview

    Initially applied online through their website. In a couple of weeks was invited for a panel interview. Two people present and about 15 - 20 open questions. Apparently there is some sort of scoring system the two interviewers use. Some questions did not seem to directly pertain to the position.

    First interview was with the donated goods regional manager. It went well, called me back couple weeks later for 2nd interview to meet with a second regional manager and the corporate manager. Needless to say it didn't go well I assumed because the next day I saw the position I applied to posted on the job board.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Goodwill (Bowling Green, KY) in December 2014.

    Interview

    It was a normal interview. It went over job history. It doesn't cover that you will be working with recently released felons. They ask if you can work more than 45 hours a week. They want to know if you can work with difficult employees.
