Application

I applied online. The process took 3 daysinterviewed at Barnes & Noble.

Interview

Pretty basic. A lot of people quit on them and they were hiring a full house pretty much.

I got called for an interview, went in the next day, got asked a few questions about my availability I went home and then got offered the job the following day.

NO DRUG TEST! =)

Interview Questions

  • Uhm the most "unexpected" question was "What's your favorite Starbucks drink?"

    It was hardly an interview. I'm not saying it was a bad thing though. I actually enjoyed the anxiety free interview.
     
    Answer Question

Negotiation

No negotiation.

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Barnes & Noble (Columbia, SC) in July 2010.

    Interview

    A simple interview that was more of a getting to know you. Not the most rigorous screening process! Some basic questions and then scheduling questions. After that, we completed a training meeting and started immediately.
