Interview Details – I applied online for the position on a Wednesday and 9 days later on a Friday they called me asking if I would like to come in on Monday for an interview at 5:40 pm, I accepted.
They told me to ask for **** or ***** (which are both managers) when I showed up
I showed up 30 minutes early and told a cashier that I was there for an interview and she pointed me towards the manager. The manager asked me to hold on a minute while she checked in with her supervisor and that she would be right with me. I only waited for about 5 minutes and since the person who was supposed to be interviewed before me was not there yet I was taken straight in.
The interview lasted about 20 minutes, the interviewer was really friendly and straight forward.
About 3 hours after the interview I was called and asked to come in for a second interview, but they were waiting on my background check to come in so they would call in the next couple days to schedule the second interview.
The next morning the same manager who interviewed me called and asked me if I could come in that day to fill out some paperwork, I told her I would.
So I went in the day after my interview to pick up the paper work, and it turned out to be for a drug test. The manager told me I needed to take the drug test at the lab before 330 the next day and then explained to me what the uniform is, and told me "welcome aboard"
There never was a second interview.
I took the drug test on a Wednesday ( 2 weeks after I applied online) and they called me on Saturday asking me to come in for orientation on the following day, Sunday, at 8 am. So I did.
