Mission: We are creating a better every day
I worked at Coinstar full-time (More than 5 years)
People and management are talented.
Upper management is refocusing on having an efficient operation.
Small and focused layoffs come almost yearly.
Advice to Management
Provide the option to move to other positions in the company during layoffs.
I applied online. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at Coinstar.
I had initial phone screenings with the same Coinstar recruiter for three different jobs, all at or above Manager level. All three interviews went very well as far as I could tell. Having dealt with Coinstar as a customer for more than 10 years, I know their business better than most outsiders. Therefore, I thought I'd at least get a second interview. At the end of each phone screening, the recruiter told me that he would call me back within a specified period of time to let me know whether I made the cut for the next round. No call! After allowing another 4-5 days go by I had to call him back and ask the status of my application. It was at this point, each time, that I was told that I would not be moving on to the next interview. I understand that every applicant will not be contacted. However, when their recruiter tells you that he will call you back either way, I believe that he is obligated to do just that.
