    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Cato.

    Interview

    Phone interview first with HR recruiter, then 3 one on one interviews at the corporate office. Interviews were fairly casual and laid back. Some standard questions and a few from left field. Then the standard we will let you know. After not hearing for a week and a half, I wrote a follow up email, only to be mailed a letter that same day with the rejection.
