    Sales Associate Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Franklin Hill, TN
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. I interviewed at Pottery Barn (Franklin Hill, TN).

    Interview

    It took three weeks to get a response to my application. They called me to schedule an interview. The manager told me that since I had worked for Williams-Sonoma I would not be a good fit at Pottery Barn. The manager was rude and condescending. The "interview" lasted three minutes. She glanced at my resume, and then told me that I could not lift 50 pounds; I can. She didn't ask a question, and clearly was not prepared to interview me. To say that the interview was a disappointment would be an understatement.
