    Interview

    I applied online on h careers and I receive a call back from the director of operations and met with him . He was pretty much straight forward on what he wanted . He ask me questions about my work experiences , what hours I was available . It was very brief then he ask I meet with the assistant manger and again it was straight to the point and very brief .
