Interview Details – Really easy and friendly interview, all I had to do was answer easy questions about why I wanted to work for the company, ect. The only hiccup was the dreaded, "greatest weakness", which while fighting the urge to wisecrack and say "fire, bullets, and boobs", I lobbed a "my perfectionism" hail-mary, to which he replied "well, as a fast food cook, you wont have the time to be perfect." Interception in the end zone, boo. But I got the job, yay! Then I saw he circled a 3 out of 5 for my appearance, boo, lol.

Interview Details – I applied online and got a call back a month or so later. I was interviewed by three different people and each interview went by pretty quickly. I felt like it went well with the first two but the third one started bad as soon as the interviewer sat down. I could tell right way the guy was not interested in me and the tone that was set made me feel discouraged. I fumbled through his questions and I could tell right then and there I was not getting the job. He handed me a little math quiz to do and I finished that quickly. He then took it back and told me they'd get back to me soon. They of course never did.
