My purpose contacting REI is about a negative experience my 17-year-old son recently had in dealing with the Hingham, MA store. He applied for an entry level sales associate position online. My son was first given a phone screening and then scheduled for an interview at the store. On the day of the interview, he was called a few hours prior, while he was at school so a voicemail had to be left informing him that the interview had to be cancelled and rescheduled for the next day. He interviewed the next day and left feeling positive about the experience especially since the interviewer asked about his days of availability. Sadly, he received a generic letter sent to his email that “others were being considered for the job”. I understand apparently he wasn’t what this particular person was looking for – but my issue is “what has happened to people being human and giving someone a call vs. sending a form letter?” He is quite disappointed and not sure what happened – it would be nice to get some constructive feedback to help this young man become more marketable and optimistic about future dealings with businesses such as REI. I have lost respect for REI because of the poor way that my sons interview process was handled. Thank you for your interest.
