    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at The News Group (Wheaton, IL) in September 2016.

    Interview

    I had applied online and a few hours later the recruiter called me. She had asked some general questions and explained the position. I was told the hiring manager would call me back in 48 hours. The next day the hiring manager called me and we set up a face to face a few days later. She hired me on the spot.

    Field Merchandiser for Select Merchandising Services Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in West Palm Beach, FL
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at The News Group (West Palm Beach, FL) in May 2011.

    Interview

    Met the North Palm Beach Field Manager at a McDonald's. I had submitted my thorough documentation to him electronically, but he insisted that I bring all originals to him. I understand showing original proof of citzenship and driver's liscense, but I am uncomfortable that he has all documentation in electronic format.
    Field Manager talked for 20 minutes straight. Never offered the job. I was on a time frame limitation and he was aware of this, but continued to talk away. Never acted like he'd give me the job. Running out of "chitty-chat" time, I asked him if I had the job and he continued to blab. I asked him again and he agreed that he would hire me.

    If you don't mind listening to someone talk constantly with poor English who is difficult to understand, this interview is for you.
