    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 1 dayinterviewed at American Girl (Scottsdale, AZ) in June 2015.

    Interview

    Very easy; was interviewed at job fair, instantly interviewed by second manager, and offered a position on the spot; did not accept due to distance from my house, but the staff were understanding and very receptive and personable in regards to my reasoning.
