The Job Interview Was Not Positive.

Preston, England
September 7, 2015 9:31am CST
I felt this was a waste of time. They kept me waiting for nearly half an hour after my appointment time, for which I was early. The interviewer offered no apology for the delay and claimed that he was seeing twenty-five people for four sales positions, essentially running trade stalls for a marketing group in various public places, mostly shopping malls. I felt it was out of my league though I never admitted as much. He only had one other interviewee in before me while I was there and there was nearly twenty minutes between him leaving and the boss finally seeing me.

Doesn't sound like a great company to work for. That was very unprofessional to make you wait so long and offer no apology for it.

Totally agree. It's the kind of interview where if I don't get the job I won't feel bad about it. They probably did me a favour if they rejected me.

@arthurchappell Sure sounds that way. If that's how they treat their interviewees imagine how they treat employees.

I'm sorry to hear that. I've had that happen to me during a few interviews. My favorite though was when I was interviewed for Target.

I had experience that too .What made me think is they seem okay for them to keep us waiting because what's in their mind is us who needs most the job.

Yes, they know we need them more than they need us, but I am principled enough not to work for someone who holds staff in such indifferent contempt.

I believe you are right, this interview sounds like a lost of time.
