Application

I applied online. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Ollie’s Bargain Outlet (Harrisburg, PA) in Jun 2021

Interview

Received a text message from HR to initiate contact. A few days later, had a phone interview. A few days after that, a zoom interview with the person I was told would be interviewing me plus another person who they said I would not report to. I'm not sure why they were there. Told I'd be contacted the following Monday but it's been a week and no contact. I tried to call the HR person, left a vm on Thursday following up but I think I've been ghosted but not sure. I feel the least they could do is let me know one way or the other. It did seem a bit unprofessional in the line of questions and as if they weren't familiar of the duties in my field which is fine but they also pointed out they do not have a clear bureaucracy or policies so I don't know if I'm just falling between the cracks or people are maybe on vacation or if I simply didn't get the job.

Interview Questions
  • They asked if I was familiar with a particular type of reporting and where the data I work with is usually pulled.
