    Recruiter Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Earth City, MO
    Declined Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Save-A-Lot Food Stores (Earth City, MO) in July 2017.

    Interview

    The recruiter began the conversation rattling off reasons why no one would be interested in working for them (company was recently purchased by Onyx, new CEO and experiencing a lot of change). In addition, she had the phone call on speaker and performing other tasks (a lot of background noises) while conducting the interview. She said absolutely NOTHING that promoted the company or opportunity. Had she looked over the resume before initiating contact, she would not have asked many of the questions she asked (degree status, for example). This was a very impersonal and unprofessional experience.

    The interview process was fairly simple. Did a phone interview with a HR representative and then did a face to face with a district manager.

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 5+ months. I interviewed at Save-A-Lot Food Stores (Fort Myers, FL) in December 2016.

    Interview

    I gave the manager my resume and did not receive any calls or anything for an interview. About 5 weeks later, I went in and asked the manager for an "update on my application". He then asked if I could do an interview the next day. I went to the interview (at 9am), but evidently got tuned down.
