    Operations Analyst Intern Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Smithfield, RI
    Declined Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview
    Application

    I applied through an employee referral I interviewed at FGX International (Smithfield, RI) in Mar 2020

    Interview

    Interviewed here in March before the Covid-19 lockdown. Successfully advanced past a series of interviews to get a verbal offer from HR representative Erika Rothberg over the phone, and was told I would receive an offer letter in the coming days. After not receiving any word, she then ignored my calls and emails. I believe this may have been due to Covid, however it is not difficult by any means to quickly respond to somebody, even if the message is negative. This experience was very unprofessional and quite misleading, and truthfully I will never apply here again as it reflects on the company as a whole. I’m glad to have found a position elsewhere that has consideration for others and their time.
