Kmart - My time is worth nothing
Interview for Job - Complaint
DES MOINES, IOWA -- 2535 Hubbell Avenue, Des Moines store. I received an email stating that I had an appointment for 10:00 am to interview for a job position at 2535 Hubbell Avenue, Des Moines, Iowa. I arrived shortly before 10:00 am and approached the service desk where I waited in line for 10 minutes. Once I made it to the front of the line I stated that I was there for my 10:00 am interview. The woman at the counter laughed at me and said I'd have to come back at 12:30 pm.
I drove 35 miles one way to come to the interview. I arrived on time. I waited in the car until 12:20 pm and the same person at the service desk told me that the HR person still hadn't come in. I waited and was finally told at 12:40 pm that it would be 10 minutes. The person who was relieved by another woman then proceeded to take her brother (at least that's what she told the woman who relieved her at the service desk) to the HR person. I waited until 1:00 pm and told the customer service person that I'd wasted enough of my time and left.
The sad part is why did I wait so long to leave? The unprofessional treatment is unbelievable. I called and asked to speak to a manager, he made all kinds of excuses for what had happened and made it sound like it was my fault. Seriously? I arrived as directed in the email and its my fault. Don't shop there and maybe they will all go away. NO LOSS.
