    Manager In Waiting Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Costa Mesa, CA
    Declined Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Robbins Brothers (Costa Mesa, CA) in December 2015.

    Interview

    I applied online and follow up with the hiring manager for the store that I applied with an email I was able to get an interview quite quickly. The interview was scheduled by one person but I ended up interviewing with someone else This is probably because I did not fit their culture asks. The interviewrr of the store has a very brash and unprofessional personality. He took a phone call during the interview for 5 minutes. The interview itself centered around a very odd conversation about conflict. The point he was trying to get across is that conflict is a good, necessary thing in the workplace. He said he intentionally creates conflict with his team and does not avoid it. He also said that top performers are the most valuable thing and that you should encourage a team to be jealous of those who perform well. There was a test that I needed to take prior to having the interview. I am sure that I did not perform well on their test because my values construct is very different from Robbins Bros. The person scheduled the interview never came to talk to me. Offer of job was presented by Second interviewer,I deferred politely but will not be accepting a position with them. In my opinion, the fact the person who schedule the interview, list on their website as the one to reach out to and desicion maker,offered through her someone else,without sitting down me coupled with the strange view of conflict in the workplace, are major red flags.

    Interview Questions

    • Would you hire a top performer if you knew it would create culture conflicts in your store?   1 Answer

    Reasons for Declining

    Everyone has to start on their sales floor selling and based on your evaluation you CAN be placed into a manager role. It seems it would be very easy for them to either hold you back because you didn't perform well enough, or even because you perform too well. Management roles are probably given to those who perform well enough but ultimately are well liked.
