    Retail Sales Associate Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Declined Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview


    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at BoxLunch in November 2019.


    When I arrived I told one of the workers on the floor that I was there for an interview, he went to the back and got the person who would be doing my interview. We went to a sitting area nearby outside of the store. when we started the interview she said so you know the position is seasonal and that once things return to normal you cannot guarantee employment.... no I did not know this. when I applied I had applied for the permanent position. as the interview went on, it was clear she was new and it turned out she was not even the one who does the actual hiring and that she would have to talk to the person who does. overall not impressed by this.

    I really could go on for a while about how bad this interview was...
