Interview

One interview with very rude manager who assumed I couldn’t work weekends when I said I would like Saturdays of and then preceded to say I shouldn’t be looking for retail and her works have been there for 4 years so how would they feel if they got weekends off. When I allowed to mention I just wanted Saturdays off and don’t mind Sundays she changed her attitude. I also mentioned prior retail experience at Walmart and she said “we’re not like Walmart we don’t just scan and take your money” which is rude considering Walmart requires you to deal with wick and food stamps (if you know you know). She then said “We actually care about our customers we ask if they want to sign up for our newsletters, warranty, and memberships, so if you can’t do that tell me now because I know some people can’t”. Overall it was incredibly hostile and I wouldn’t suggest working at the one in Claremont NH

Interview

The interview process was conducted by playing a game that us reviewed and evaluates your traits based off of your answers. However, after everything was submitted there has been no reply or acknowledgment, by them, concerning the receipt of the results of their own interview procedures. Not impressed with the level of professionalism
