    Application Details

    I applied in-person. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at The Source in September 2014.

    Interview Details

    Hiring was really simple, I just handed in my resume one day during hiring season and was called in that week. I was first screened by phone and asked a variety of questions, the biggest of which was "how would you sell me your phone."

    Phase 2 was a physical interview with the manager who asked me several behavioural questions and asked me to sell my phone again.
