    it was a very cold interview. the managers were not very friendly or inviting. they seemed like they were in a foul mood towards eachother. they made me wait for a particularly long period of time before someone actually came and sat down with me. the actual interview seemed easy i suppose.

    Interview

    Around 15 mins with a store manager and was at the store. I made out an application did this on line. I was very comfortable and was able to do it after my normal school hours so I felt that they would be very accommodating. Questions were not hard and had to do with how I liked the store and how familiar I was with the store.
