    Application Details

    I applied in-person. The process took a day - interviewed at Belk.

    Interview Details

    Interviewed on my lunch hour, HR was very professional and made interview seem more like a get to know one another time than an actual business interview. This was 19 years ago and things have changed in company since then, it was more personal and more of a caring atmosphere and not so much about numbers as it is today under the new CEO.
