    I have been working at Broad River Retail full-time

    Pros

    Good income if you can get your opportunity with customers.

    Cons

    GMs and Sales Managers poach and cherry pick customers and give each other preferential treatment. Core Value of Integrity is not upheld.

    Advice to Management

    Walk the Walk if you're going to Talk the Talk.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Broad River Retail (Fort Mill, SC).

    Interview

    After numerous discussions, emails, and interviews with various dept's I was led on to believe that I would be offered a position in HR and that I would be contacted within a couple of days. A week later I didn't hear anything back and contacted the hiring manager who said "we decided to go with someone who has more retail experience." What? This didn't make any sense at all and I was extremely confused and disappointed. A couple of weeks later I see the exact same job posted again so I inquired about the status and this time there was no mention at all of someone else being hired. I was either lied to or that "person" just didn't seem to workout over a 2 week span of time. Now 2 months later and they posted the SAME position AGAIN, so obviously they can't fill the role and if the interview process is any indication of why then this explains it.

    Interview Questions

    • First interview was a meet and greet, 2nd interview was with HR and was a behavioral style of questions with general conversation as well.   Answer Question
