I interviewed at Petco

Interview

They had a long lengthy interview process and they wont even get back to you for weeks at a time. Way too much politics where everyone is jocking for their position. They also don't get rid of the bad apples within their company.

Interview Questions
  • They'll ask random quizzes that don't even relate to the job title

La entrevista bastante informal, lo único que en verdad quieren evaluar es si estás dispuesto a aguantar ser explotado y qué tanta necesidad tienes del empleo. No evaluan otras características como tus habilidades o si tienes estudios.

Interview Questions
  • Literal: estás dispuesto a aguantar las friegas?

Me mandaron correo para agendar entrevista. Desde el inicio supe que iria algo mal, el entrevistador me dejó esperando 20 min. Desde el inicio parecia que solo seguia un guion de preguntas, bostezó varias veces y me interrumpía en algunas respuestas que dí. Solo buscan conocer con que "grandes empresas" has trabajado con anterioridad.
