    Application

    The process took 4 daysinterviewed at Metro.

    Interview

    I handed in my resume and filled application to one of my friends who already worked there. My friend referred me and gave my resume and application to the manager. I got a call 2 days later from the manager asking me to come in for an interview. It wasn't even really an interview because I guess she knew that one of her employees knew me and my work ethic. It was more of a casual conversation about my availability, etc. I was hired on the spot, given a booklet to fill out forms and booked an orientation day. The "interview" lasted about 15 minutes. *TIP* If you want to stand out to all of the other applicants, you should conduct a follow-up call just to ensure your resume has been viewed for consideration of the position you applied for. Look up "how to follow-up on a resume" on google and you'll get a lot of advice!!

    Interview Questions

    • I wasn't asked any questions, but if I were to be asked any, they probably would've been the usual "why do you want to work here?" etc.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    No negotiation.
