    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 6 weeks - interviewed at Bon-Ton Stores in April 2014.

    Interview Details

    The interview process is very long and somewhat confusing. The website used to process applications has many shortcomings, which can complicate the hiring process. There is a very long sections of the application where there are up to 12 pages of questions that need to be answered prior to the application being forwarded to the facility you are applying to. Once your application is received, there are between 1-2 interviews, usually on separate days. If you are selected for a position, you are emailed an offer (so you better have an email address you check often). Once that hurdle is crossed, there is a 2-4 week waiting time while background checks are processing. Orientations are usually scheduled for new hires on Tuesdays and Fridays, and work generally starts the next week.
