    Application

    I applied in-person – interviewed at Trans World Entertainment.

    Interview

    I went into an F.Y.E. store to ask for an application, and the Store Manager told me the applications were online. The online application is very straightforward. At the end, you will do a 40-50 question quick-answer section. You are asked typical questions on how you feel about theft, punctuality, customer service, etc. The computer will automatically weed out applications with answers that were unfavorable. The remaining candidates are reviewed by the Store Manager, who then selects applicants for call-backs. The call-back will be to schedule a face-to-face meeting. In the face-to-face, the Store Manager asked standard questions. The whole process took about one week for me.
