    Shift Supervisor Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Bracknell, England (UK)
    No Offer
    Negative Experience

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Holland & Barrett Retail (Bracknell, England (UK)) in April 2015.

    Interview

    Went to First Interview everything went well. Asked to go for a Second Interview and a Trail Day of work, was successful. Asked to come and see a Area Manager in a location not near myself, and when I said I was not able to travel that far on that day, I was told I either come on the day the Area manager says or they will withdraw my application. Not at all professional or flexible or even understanding to the situation. The meeting with the Area manager would have been 2 hours away from me on Public Transport.
