    Assistant Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Fredericksburg, VA
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at Visionworks (Fredericksburg, VA) in February 2013.

    Interview

    The interview process is very detailed and took about an hour. They are not really organized though, as I applied online and was asked to come in for an interview. Then they wanted me to fill out an application on top of submitting a resume and made me wait for about 30 minutes due to their non organization. They gave a lot of timed tests even though the online application process has about a half hour test. I felt that most of the interview process was a waste of time for everyone. Everyone i met was friendly.
