    I applied through college or university. The process took a dayinterviewed at Lord & Taylor.

    Interview

    I applied through my university. The recruiter came on campus for interview. The interview only lasted 30 minutes and they asked typical behavioral style questions. In every question you had to give an example of a situation in which you demonstrated a certain skill. They got all of these questions from a packet they had in front of them and would write notes of what you were saying.
