    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Follett Higher Education Group.

    Interview

    I applied online through Follett Careers. It took 3 weeks until the manager called me for an interview invitation. It took a while because Neebo was acquired by Follett and so change was undergoing. The interview was very laid-back. The manager verified information and asked clarifying questions about my resume. A total of 3 questions was asked and then we discussed what the job would entail and store hours. The manager informed me that a decision will be made in 2 days. I was actually called immediately and was asked if I was still interested in the position and I accepted. The manager informed me that the wage is $7.25 and temporary, however there is an opportunity in the future to be a Sales Associate if it works out and a $1.00 raise. Overall, no phone interview was conducted just a face interview with 1 manager.
