    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Pet Supplies Plus (Billerica, MA) in May 2015.

    Interview

    First I met the assistant manager that took me through some rolplaying as if he was a customer. It was all kinda neat and fun. The manager and assistant manager were both down to earth which made it easier to relax. They both had a good sense of humor. The place just felt like somewhere I would love to come in every day, it reminded me why I want a job like this in the first place. You could tell the people thier just loved animals. Somehow I believe that if a person can care for a smaller being it makes them more pleasent to be around.

    Interview Questions

    • We did a little rolplaying selling a customer litter   1 Answer
    • When was one time you went above and beyond for someone?   Answer Question

    Interview

    I had a phone interview scheduled for a Friday morning at 11:00. After spending hours prepping. I anxiously awaited the call. Hours passed without a call, so I emailed the Manager who set up the call to ask if it needed to be rescheduled. I still haven't received even an email back from him after 2 weeks, so I refuse to ever interview with the company again.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at Pet Supplies Plus (Chicago, IL) in January 2015.

    Interview

    Interview was very short and simple. I get the feeling that they ask the same 5 questions to anyone applying, whether they be 16 or 60. Very general, "do you like animals?" "have you ever worked a register before?" "can you lift heavy bags of dog food?" etc. ***DRUG TEST ON THE SPOT***
