Accepted Offer – Interviewed in Queensbury, NY Sep 2011 – Reviewed Feb 12, 2013
Interview Details – Was contacted soon after the initial application. The interview itself was very standard for a retail setting, invoking the direct supervisor of your department and the store manager. The questions asked were almost all pertaining to previous work experience and one's ability to interact with people. Will also ask questions about responsibility and honesty, as they have a rather strict set of security procedures, and seem to trust their associates very little.
Interview Question – Can not recall a most difficult question, as it will be dependent upon your personal experiences. Answer Question
Negotiation Details – There was no negotiation.

Accepted Offer – Interviewed in Plainfield, IN Jun 2012 – Reviewed Jan 26, 2013
Interview Details – I got called 2 days after applying. I went in and took a test on a computer that is pretty simple to pass. Basic counting and math. Basically prove you're not stupid. After the test, HR will tell you whether you pass or fail. Once you pass, you'll come back the next day for an interview. Nothing hard about the interview, just basic questions. Then you take the drug test at the end and I got the call about a week later to come in for orientation
