Prior to the interview I looked at reviews on Glassdoor and already knew some of the things she talked about. I wasn't asked anything about abilities or prior experience. She looked at my application for two seconds and handed me a paper about drug testing.

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at Family Dollar Stores (Lewiston, ME) in May 2015.

    Interview

    First time I applied I and withdrew from the goal day interview. 2nd time I applied and received a phone interview which lasted up to 20.minutes from another store manager in the district.
    It's was pleasant and thorough though it was hard to make myself look good with the questions asked.
    One question I would of ask is tell me a difficult customer experience and how did you deal with the situation.
    It's been 3 weeks now, and no word, I saw it has been posted. So still waiting.
