Basic interview questions along with questions based on a case study, stats and basic info from an example store. At the end of the interview was told by the DM to expect a call within 48 hrs with an offer. Told details and plans discussed in interview were changed only after offer already accepted, so be sure to ask questions and make sure of the details before accepting any offer; for example: training store location and duration, assignment after training.
