    I worked at Boscov's full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Boscovs has a Family type Atmosphere due to being family owned. This also makes it easy to test new products and pricing without a lot of red tape.

    Cons

    HR does not address concerns. Many things are swept under the rug and inappropriate and unprofessional behavior are allowed to continue.
    No work/life balance

    Maintenance Technician Interview

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Boscov's (Wilkes-Barre, PA) in March 2017.

    Interview

    Being a disabled vet I applied for the Building Maintenance posting. We set up interview. I was interviewed, told what was expected. They schedule you for another day to fill out new hire paperwork giving you the false expectation of being hired. I had to do a background check and such. I received papers saying a check was done. Called the HR to be polite and see if I could answer any questions but was only given a leave a message option. So I did with no return call. Or even knowing if I was got the job or not. If this is how they treat disabled vets who are looking for a job I can only imagine what it would be like if I was hired.
