The numbers are a little better on Indeed. For instance, 186 employees give Newegg 3.1 out of 5 stars. The highest mark (3.2) is for work-life balance and the lowest (2.7) is for management. Only 51% approve of the CEO.
If you’re thinking of applying to Newegg, these are not the best ratings.
What felony convictions might have a hard time getting hired here?
Do you have a criminal record for fraud, theft or embezzlement? Offenses such as these might be a problem when you apply to Newegg. That’s because you might be handling customer accounts and the company has to know stealing isn’t a risk if they hire you.
What about offenses where the victim was threatened or physically harmed? Assault-related crimes can suggest to the hiring manager that you have a problem controlling your temper. Your job at Newegg depends on treating customers well and collaborating with other employees. That’s not just being cooperative! It means you must have really good communication skills.
So, how does Newegg hire people with misdemeanors? The same types of offenses might make it harder for you to get hired, even if they weren’t treated as felonies.
Does Newegg drug test?
There are some online comments saying that Newegg tests for drugs. Other people say they weren’t given a drug test. In other words, we’re not sure! It might depend on the location.
