    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took a day - interviewed at Shaw's.

    Interview Details

    I filled out an application online, came in for an interview with the manager and was hired on the spot. It seems they make the decision before you even come in since there aren't really any questions. After meeting with me and just asking why I wanted the job and why I left my old one, I was brought into an office for a drug test and hired. The next week I came in for orientation and started the next day.
