    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 daysinterviewed at Bozzuto's.

    Interview

    I got recommended from a friend of a manager. I got a call one morning and was asked to come in for an interview the same day. She told me about the position and the pay rate over the phone. Since I only had about 5 hours to prepare, I quickly looked for the ccompany's webpage and tried to learn as much as I could. I knew nothing about the company... When I arrived, I was bought into the office part of Bozzuto's and was asked a couple of basic questions like How do I deal with difficult people and I was asked to tell her about my work history, why I want to leave my current job, why do I want to work at Bozzuto's and if there were things I didn't like about my current job. Those were easy. Luckily, I researched the "things I didn't like about my current job" question. I just told her that I didn't like closing the store by myself at 10pm so I didn't sound negative. Any female would understand my concern and agree with it. This part took about 10 minutes. She then told me that she wanted me to meet with the supervisor later that day. I also had to wear close toed shoes. I had to buy close toed shoes right after the first interview. The supervisor took me on a tour of the facility, explaining things as she went along. Very detailed, but she knew I wasn't going to retain all of the information. It was a lot to take in! I noticed that there was a lot of chit-chat going on. Everyone was very friendly to each other. I started to make small talk with her. The supervisor seemed very down to earth. We found a private room and she told me more about the job, pay rate and that I would have to get a physical, drug and background test. She asked if I had any questions and I asked how long does the training last and she told me about 2 weeks, but most people get it in 10 days. We walked down a long hallway and was chatting about the dozens of pictures on the walls. When we got back up front, she quickly asked me what my life goals were. I told her that I wanted to do something in the administrative field. We shook hands and she said, very flatly, that someone would be in touch. I didn't know how to take that. The next day, I got a call that woke me up and I was asked if I still wanted the position because they wanted me! (the details are a bit fuzzy.) I told them Yes, of course. They wanted me to come in for a physical, drug test and background test that day. I came in, signed a bunch of papers and was told to go to a location for my physical and drug test. I will start training on Monday!

    Interview Questions

    • All of the questions were easy. Really easy. The one that threw me off was "What are your life goals" Because she asked me this right before we were going to end the interview. I was out of "interview phase" and was going through critiquing the interview. It just caught me off guard.   1 Answer

    Negotiation

    No negotiations. Pay was over what I expected. Benefits will kick in after three months, I think.
