I applied in-person and the process took a day - interviewed at Half Price Books in June 2008.

Interview Details – The store had a sign up and I filled out an application. They only promote from within, and seniority is not a factor. Interpersonal compatability is the most important factor.

Let the interview be as natural and as true to your personality as possible, otherwise you may get the job and end up quitting because you just don't fit in with the group.

This company allows dating between employees including managers and entry-level, and there is a lot of after hours socializing since it is permitted.

Do not try to push credentials or education level. The company website states that there is not a single degree at the corporate offices. The way to get hired, promoted, or stay employed is your ability to maintain within the social circle at the store. So be friendly and personable.
