    Interview Details

    Applied online. Received a phone interview and was asked to come for a physical interview. Neither the store manager or the assistant manager had time to interview me, though they said I would be interviewing with them. Had a great time interviewing with their department leads, though I would have appreciated at least meeting one of the managers who said they would interview be doing the interview.
