    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5 daysinterviewed at Trade Secret (Owings Mills, MD).

    Interview

    My interview was very short. It lasted about 30 minutes. The manager did not ask me the typical questions that employers usually read verbatim off a list. She asked me questions from the top of her head. My references was not checked and I got hired on the spot. The questions was not difficult. One of the easiest interviews ever.

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took a dayinterviewed at Trade Secret in October 2011.

    Interview

    The job was originally found on CraigsList. A call was made immediately and an interview scheduled for the afternoon of the same day. I arrived for the interview and met the regional manager. The regional manager and salon manager performed the interview in the back room. The majority of the interview consisted solely of questions about the financial stability of the current salon where I was working! These were questions which I did not have the knowledge to answer. There were no questions about my skills or abilities. The only other questions consisted of my likes and dislikes about the industry. I received no follow up communication. This interview was a complete waste of time. It seemed to me as if it was a ploy for management to gain further knowledge about the competition. The interview left me feeling inadequate about my knowledge of the industry in which I have made a career, even though I have no significant experience in the financial sector.
