    Receptionist Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in San Diego, CA
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Volkswagen (San Diego, CA) in September 2016.

    Interview

    I was offered a position as a receptionist. However, one week later W---- called me and asked me specific questions about a DUI I had gotten as a teenager (I am now 25). Another week went by and I attempted to contact W---- and was ignored. Another week later I was mailed documents about the companies right to take back the job offer and another week after, they sent letter of Adverse Action. If my mistakes as a teenager was knowingly going to be a problem then I don't understand why I couldn't be granted the respect and professionalism of letting me know that during our initial phone conversation. I had turned down 2 job offers for this position. Since my DUI I have held 3 managerial positions for 3 multimillion dollar companies. I have more than proven that I have changed from the teen who lived in her car, to the 25 yr old married military spouse trying to support a family. I'm not making excuses for something I brought on myself, but I at least deserved professionalism and not to be avoided for a month, then given a letter in the mail. When being offered the job, the management team prided themselves on transparency. That was clearly a lie. You had two opportunities to be transparent with me and ran away from both.
