    Retail Area Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Telford, England
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at PDSA (Telford, England) in May 2016.

    Interview

    Once again, on a pattern of re-advertising this position which I would suggest not to apply wasting your time, energy and money going for this position has no job there.

    I personal think they are looking for ideas on the cheap and have no idea how to run a retail business, getting excited of producing a 1.5% profit is shameful !!!! to say that most goods they sell are donated. They live in a fantasy world of we are great, but in reality are self indulgent
