    Application Details

    I applied in-person. The process took a day - interviewed at La Madeleine in January 2013.

    Interview Details

    I went in to ask for an application after hearing about openings here. A manager immediately sat me down and gave me a short, 20 minute interview. They asked about where I have worked in the past and how I handled problems. One of their biggest factors was how I got along with other employees.
