    Application Details

    I applied in-person. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Spherion.

    Interview Details

    For a job paying less than 24K a year, I was bewildered at the fact that I have 3 interviews for it. Each interview was very obscure as it related to the salary. When I finally met with the franchise owners, they were nice but you could see the concern of turnover in their eyes. It didn't take long to see why.

    Negotiation Details
    I did not negotiate. My advice would be not to settle if you can afford to.
