    Retail Store Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at Pilot Flying J.

    Interview

    The process is broken. I was pursued by the corporate recruiter and we had very consistent communication. I interviewed with the Regional Manager. At the interview I was told that I would love to the next step and to "clear my schedule" for the upcoming week to do a walkthrough with the Travel Center General Manager.
    In less than 90 minutes I called the recruiter to follow up and was told that they went with another candidate.
    Really? That's not what I was told about an hour ago. Very bad taste an unprofessional.
    I have no problem with another candidate being selected. I do, however, have a problem with being told something in direct contradiction and being mislead on purpose. You could have said "I have another candidate I'm interested in and we'll be in touch". You could have said "We're not interested". You could have said "I'll keep you in mind for the future". Anything beside "clear your schedule" knowing that you have another candidate you were leaning so strongly toward that you could make your decision in less an hour and a half.
    By the way, when I tried to call for feedback on my interview to help with my job search, that "great communication" went from daily calls to not responding at all (not even by email).

    Deli Manager Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Ripon, CA

    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Pilot Flying J (Ripon, CA) in July 2017.

    Interview

    At the end of Interview #1, I was introduced to some employees in various departments to shadow them on the floor as if I was hired already. I was offered the job at the end of interview #1 and was emailed a link to fill out another online application that was rejected by a big time mgr. After calling the store mgr to ask what had happened, we ended up scheduling interview #2 (dated a week later) the same day as Interview #1. My visitation time with my son AND interview #2 conflicted so I requested a reschedule date. No luck. Did not get a response on that matter but was questioned further about my resume and why I have had so many different jobs ranging in 4 different states. Did not make interview #2. I attended a job fair a week or 2 later and nailed interview #3. I was guaranteed a call back within 72 hours and sure enough, they called with my hire date and orientation time.
