    Application

    I applied online – interviewed at Barnes & Noble College Bookstores.

    Interview

    I had a one on one interview with the manager though now the store I work at has moved to group interviews when hiring for rush. It was pretty standard interview questions but also included some role playing activities which I was not at all expecting but were easy enough to handle.

    Interview Questions

    • Role playing a (totally common) situation where a customer comes in knowing absolutely nothing.   Answer Question
