    Interview Details

    I applied online and a couple of days later someone contacted me over the phone and asked if I could come in. I went in the next day about 15min before scheduled time. I waited for awhile probably like 30 min until my interview. My interview took place in an office but the person who interviewed before me was interviewed in the store next to jeans! Interview was quick and I was asked like 4 questions. Like why modells, describe yourself. Just make sure to have a lot of questions ready because thats important to them.
