    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at Housing Works in October 2013.

    Interview Details

    I submitted my resume for a position as an Intern at one of the Housing Works Thrift Shops. Almost two months later I was contacted via phone by one of the volunteer coordinators. She left a message informing me that she was interested in having me Intern and wanted me to start right away. She was not initially going to even interview me she was simply going to have me come in and start but then she said that we will have a phone interview. We set up a phone interview and she asked me a total of two questions and then I went down to the store to have some paperwork signed to start interning. The volunteer coordinator/ assistant manager was very friendly and welcoming.
