    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at bareMinerals (New Haven, CT) in February 2017.

    Interview

    A telephone interview time was set by email. The interviewer called me at the wrong time. I was in the middle of taking my children to school. I was very polite but said that it was not a good time to talk. I asked if it was possible to call me back in 30 mins (which was ALSO not the agreed upon time. She said no problem, she understood and would call me back. SHE NEVER CALLED ME BACK AND IGNORED 3 MESSAGES LEFT BY ME. EXTREMELY RUDE!! Terrible way to be treated! I had been a loyal customer for years. NOT ANYMORE!!
