    Interview

    I was called by a general company recruiter from Minnesota. It was a pleasant interview. I was then passed on to another company rep. from Chicago. This interview was very challenging.

    Interview

    I applied online and was contacted a few weeks later by a recruiter at HQ. The recruiter then selected me to move on to an interview with the local franchise I had applied to work at. A month later I was contacted for a second interview with the company and almost 5 months later I have still never heard back from the local franchise about the position, either positively or negatively even though the local owner said they would "be in touch".
