    Sales and Management Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Providence, RI
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at United Natural Foods (Providence, RI).

    Interview

    I was called in to interview twice. Before the second interview they called and asked me to interview for a "more prestigious" position. After being told I was perfect for the job I asked when to follow up. After following up, I noticed everyone avoided reaching out to me. To this day no word from this company. All emails and voicemails went unanswered. Very poor and unprofessional way to handle an interview.
