  1. Internship Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Des Plaines, IL
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at Southwestern Advantage (Des Plaines, IL) in Mar 2022

    Interview

    Asked the presenter of the internship these questions:

    Isn’t 80-90 hours of work per week exploitative?
    Especially at minimum wage because $100,000 over the course of four years is still minimum wage, correct? And that’s only if the student is “successful.”

    After saying this in a private message to the interviewer I was told that I could leave the meeting if that’s how I felt. Immediately after he said this, I was not given a chance to leave myself but was instead kicked out of the zoom meeting.
    Interview

    We were not asked any questions.
