Job Interview frustration

Post by Hunterforjobs on Fri Jun 22, 2012 1:00 pm

I applied for a job the other day through email as is normal now adays. I do not send resumes right away anymore but first ask if the job is still available.

To my surprise, the email was responded to right away and I was invited to an interview. I was thrilled. The job was only part time but I thought what the hay.

She sent me another email telling me that interviews were being held at Starbucks at 11:45 am.

Maybe it is just me, but if you're interviewing for a position, shouldn't you have the interview in the place of business where the job would be.

Red flag went up immediately. At 11:45 am. close to lunchtime or is lunchtime for some people, that particular Starbucks is packed until around 1 pm.
I also thought, is this a way to dwindle the applicants, knowing that parking would be non existant and the surrounding town full of traffic.

I didn't go to the interview only for the sole reason, the last interview I had at a Panera Bread didn't pan out since the person wasn't there.

It is hard to tell if anything is legit anymore. And companies are going out of their way to let you know very little of what goes on internally inside their company.

How strange. That "interview" sounds like it was going to be a wild goose chase. Maybe even a way to get a few more customers in the Starbucks. What is going on?

I agree with ya Hunter...In So. seems that is regular have the interview in the same place the job will be at. It's frustrating...not to mention it's even more nerve racking when you can see the patrons of the business staring at you while you answer and can see their facial expressions as you answer...I want to walk over and sock em! You can't concentrate...background music, customer noise, and the interviewer asking questions all at one time....CRAZY!!!!
You also forgot to mention to even get to the point of the have to spend an hour making an online profile, then uploading your info & taking aptitude tests or screenings...then if your one of the lucky ones, you get an interview. Sometimes your doing all this just to get a job scraping gum off the floor.....REALLY! you would think they are vetting you for a presedential run.

It was suspiciously easy. I emailed an inquirey from a paper ad, I very rarely if never send out resumes blindly anymore, and the response was almost immediate which in itself was suspicious. I should have inquired why Starbucks and not at the place where position would be held. I will next time. She didn't even ask for a resume to be sent something else suspect.
