    Cashier Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Barrie, ON (Canada)
    Accepted Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Loblaw Companies (Barrie, ON (Canada)).

    Interview

    The manager came out (ran a little late) however was very nice. We had some general work place type questions and some I am not usually asked. After speaking with the manager she offered me the job on the spot if my background check came back clear and had me sign paperwork. I agreed because I knew my information would come back fine and figured I had the job based on what was said. With that said days later after dodging my calls she called back to say she decided to go with someone else even after offering me the job based on my experience and interview. I know my check came back clear. This is why I am putting this rating on here as the expectation was set. Says a lot about the company as a whole. It also conflicted me as a consumer the bad experience has not made me want to go back. Employers do not seem to understand its hard to find a job these days so when expectations are set they are taken seriously. It costs time and money to go to these interviews. They want us to take them seriously (which I do) but they do not seem to this interview was a huge eye opening experience for me as I am sure its not the only employer to run human resources and hiring these days.
