Very Easy Interview
I applied online and interviewed at Ghirardelli Chocolate.
Interview Details – Applied to Ghirardelli online for a supervisor position. I was called back two weeks later and asked if I wanted to set up an interview the next day at 11am. I showed up 5 minutes early and asked the supervisor on duty if my interviewer was there. He said that the he wasn't working that day and that he had to try to clear this up. I made light of the situation and said that I would be waiting in the lobby area. He apologized and said that he would be doing the interview instead. I had to fill out another application even though I completed the full application online. Basic interview questions were asked, availability, what I want to get out of working for the company.
Interview Question – On my availability I said that I could not work Mondays or Tuesdays. I usually never have a issue with this and he asked if it was a "make it or break it" when it came to that. Caught me off guard but I said that it was a break it because that's my availability. Answer Question
