    My advice would be...do not take a position if you do not really have an interest in that particular job. When you have a passion about the job you're applying for because you know you'll enjoy all of its responsibilities, then you'll be great at.

    Key Holder Interview

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took a dayinterviewed at LifeWay Christian Resources in September 2013.

    Interview Details

    The first step is an online application. This is relatively easy and generic. The interview process, for me, consisted of only one interview with the District Managers. The interview was relatively easy and painless. The questions were typical of any interview (strengths/weaknesses, skill set, personality etc...). For this position one of the biggest questions they ask is to describe your leadership style and explain how it is effective. Lastly, they will ask you to "sell something" to them. This could be anything you have with you, your watch, your tie, your wallet, anything! This is to get a grasp on how well you can sell, add on sell, and upsell.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at LifeWay Christian Resources in April 2011.

    Interview Details

    The application process is online. I applied first as a temporary associate, and then was later hired on part time. It took a couple of weeks to get a call back on my application. The manager liked my work history and references and set up an interview in the store with himself and an assistant manager. The questions were about retail in general (customer service situations, etc), then my church involvement and testimony. I was called back within a week after my interview and started two weeks later.
