Interview Details – I went to a job fair with my resume in hand. Handed in the resume and sat down for an interview which I now know was with a recruiter. She asked basic questions and then told me in great detail what the company is about and what they would expect of me. Looking back she most definitely did most of the talking. The recruiter said she thought I was a good fit and arranged for me to interview with someone with the job title along the lines of 'Vice President of Operations'. She was apparently in the next room and introduced us. The part with the VP was more of a normal interview. I got a call from the recruiter later that night saying I should expect a call within a week to setup an interview with a DM and a current GM. I got a call the next day from a DM. The DM interview was pretty easy, but that could be because I interviewed twice already and the questions were similiar/reworded. The DM then offered me conditional employment as long as Background check and drug test came out fine. I had nothing to worry about but he kept stressing honesty was important and that if I told him something was on the background check/drug test, I may still be up for consideration. He kept saying it so I guess honesty is extremely important to them, as it should be. Once everything came back clean he called me and asked when I wanted to start. I told him give me two weeks to quit my current job. He honored it.
Interview Question – The interview with the VP of Operations was the tougher one. I was a employed at the time as a manager in retail. She asked me my greatest weakness. Then immediately after my answer, she asked 'If I were to speak with one of your current employees, what would they say your least favorable trait would be?' They're not difficult questions, but asking both in the same interview was a slick way to give 2 weaknesses. I simply wasn't expecting it. Answer Question
Negotiation Details – The salary was the salary, they were not negotiating.

Interview Details – Was invited to interview for the position along with 7 other candidates--the process took most of the day (~8 hours) with a test of basic skills, interviews with multiple managers/important people at the office, and discussions of what would be expected of us should we pass their review. Unfortunately, it was made pretty clear that they had a preferred candidate already--it seemed as though he was treated with extreme preference.
Accepted Offer – Interviewed in Olathe, KS Apr 2011 – Reviewed May 14, 2013
Interview Details – To become an order selector in the Olathe, KS distribution center, you must go through a temp agency first. I applied from within as I know someone that works there, however I still had to go through the temp agency. The interview was fair and professional. After the interview, if they decide to hire you, you will go through an all day orientation that is thorough.
Interview Question – My interview was two years ago and I do not remember much about the questions I was asked. I do not remember there being a particularly difficult or unusual question, however. Answer Question
