The process took a day - interviewed at Borders in September 2009.

Interview Details – I was called by the hiring manager and she asked me a few basic questions about availability, and the job i was currently holding. She then set up an interview for that week. The interview was one on one and she asked me pretty standard questions, mostly situational questions like "tell me about a time you had to deal with an upset customer?' and 'what does customer service mean to you' and 'why do you want this job?', etc. there wasn't really any role playing or other curve balls. it was all very standard. I was called a few days later and offered the job.

Interview Question – Have you ever disagreed with a manager, and if so, how did you handle it?   Answer Question
