    Clerk Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Bellingham, MA
    Accepted Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Irving Oil (Bellingham, MA) in May 2015.

    Interview

    I didn't know what to expect. I had a very rude phone call from the now former manager who was swearing at me to tell me not to slack off if he hired me. I went in thinking I could deny the position or have a waiting period before a first shift. Instead, the interview was my first shift without knowing it. The manager was very rude and just threw a shirt at me. There were no questions or anything. I knew they were desperate, but this was very unpleasant.
