    Interview

    Interview was very short and brief. Hiring manager joked with me and said " you've already got the job" when I showed up dressed in a red blouse ( the company's uniform color). He assessed my management skills and after about 15 minutes of questioning he began to show me some of the ins and outs of the store and placed me for training.

    Have you meet with manager and talk about previous background of work history. Sometimes might also have to do follow up interview with assistant as well. After doing the interview and the manager offers the position to you. They send you off to a drug screening and it usually takes a day if you go in during the week.
