If you are applying for a job here, beware you probably won't been a communication after your phone interview.

As a former HR professional, I had the most egregious interview with Bob at the 3346 N Western Ave, Chicago store (shift lead role) yesterday.

From the beginning of the interview, he said "I don't know why Im interviewing you" no less than 4 times. He asked me what brought me to Chicago and then said I had qualification over those for this position. From the beginning of the interview he continued to relate my experience with his wife's employment situation. I nailed the managerial questions, and then there were questions he said "oh, I don't have to ask you this."

As a job seeker, I am as equally evaluating the company I am interviewing with, as well as being interviewed by the employer. I feel like I had no chance from the start, which is a very unpleasant place to be. I expect better than this! My valuable time was wasted!

I submitted my resume and cover letter to advertisers on Beyond and got not even one call back or interview. I am highly qualified and met the minimum requirements of all the jobs I posted to, never to hear from them again.

Beyond could make it a stipulation that employers respond to all applicants of a job!

A received 20+ emails per day and applied for positions almost daily. It got tiring submitting my info to a job, most often not to hear anything back. While this is not necessarily a problem of the emails, it does show that candidates are inherently neglected and the recruiting process is very I humane and in the end miss out on good talent. I hold boo.net to a higher standard and should have checks and balances so that the process is more humane.

I had to make a quick trip to NC from CHI for my Uncles funeral. I booked a ticket last minute and later cancelled because I had second thoughts about the cost. My Aunt insisted I com and she would loan me the money. The SWA customer service agent quickly pulled up my history and was able to be create the ticket in less than 5 mins. KUDOS!

This is a well-designed web platform to aggregate open jobs from multiple sources. I give it a 3 star rating as I did not find my job on indeed.

Our first game was yesterday, and even with all the chaos of many teams converging on the rinks at the same time, the staff was able to give superior customer service despite that fact. Kudos on a great experience!

Last night at Touche', Team Friendly Chicago and Howard Brown represented at Touche' for a World AIDS Day event. The Bar Manager, David Boyer was more than interested and cooperative in letting us invade his bar. Many Thanks David!

When you walk in the door, a salesperson greets you and asks you what you need. Not only do they point, they walk with you and show you exactly what you are looking for! 5+ stars!

I woke up to find no internet connectivity. I called RCN and they said my last payment was denied by the bank. Ok, I calmly call my bank and they researched the issues and told me no payment request was received from RCN on the date RCN quoted. So I pay off the outstanding balance and had a one hour delay getting services running. I verified the checking account that was to be drafted and it was correct in their system.

One positive, the last RCN agent I talked to was able to restore my cable serve by having me manipulate the modem. However, the 1-star rating is for the billing transaction error.

This was the first time I have used this online merchant. I received an email that my credit card had been declined, and they reached out to me, explained what had happened, and gave me succinct instructions on how to get the order processed. Very impresssive service model!

I was transferred to an apple specialist from AT&T, who was unable to get a signal on my new iPhone. I could tell from the start that she was not knowledgeable because she kept referring back to apple's cheat sheets. We got disconnected, and the next agent asked "surely you know how to do that," which I felt was quite demeaning. I told here that and she tried to apologize but the damage was done. She couldn't help me, so I'm off to the AT&T store tomorrow morning!

I shop at the store on Broadway in Chicago and had an abundance of choices when I went to by my pup a new bed. The store was neat and clean, and the cashier was professional and smart.

I purchased a referee bag from this firm and got an email asking what name I wanted embroidered on the bad (The item listing didn't include this). Nice to see a vendor go out of their way to make a customer happy!

I have recently become a fan of this on-line merchant. I bought 4 slim fit shirts as a bundle, and then fit wonderfully. And a great price. I have also ordered ties and bow ties from them.

They do not hesitate to take returns if you are not completely satisfied!

Just hit a curb and blew a tire, lucky very close to Runge's. The owner found a used tire of comperable wear and rotated my tires! Bliss!
