    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 daysinterviewed at Potbelly Sandwich Works (Centreville, VA).

    Interview

    Interviewed a few days ago. Had two separate interviews. First was with the general manager. She was very nice and wanted to get to know me, asking about my hobbies, what my goals were, why I wanted to work there, etc. It was more of a conversation than an interview. Second interview was a day later with two other managers, both of whom were nice and easy-going. They asked me a ton of situational questions (describe a time you did x) and kind of helped me out when I got stuck on them. I'm a nervous interviewer, so I'm glad I was able to interview with cool people. Whole thing was pretty chill and painless.
