    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at Carson Pirie Scott in June 2013.

    Interview Details

    I applied for Carson's online. About a month later I was called in for an interview. They asked the stereotypical interview questions then the HR woman left and got another woman. She interviewed me right there (for my second interview) and I was hired on spot. I had no previous work experience, so they are not extremely picky with who they hire.
