    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Scholastic (Charlotte, NC) in September 2012.

    Interview

    Was lied to about the lenght of the job. Was told we would be seasonals and called back during high volumn times then they hired a second shift and let all of us go. Some people change their lives to take these positions. They quit other jobs, losts benefits, moved kids from schools to work with this company.

    Interview Questions

    Negotiation

    Promising but all lies which was admitted in the end.
