    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 6 days - interviewed at Walking Company Holdings in July 2012.

    Interview Details

    barely any communication. easy job to get, but they will oversell it to you. I do not recommend this job at all. They will tell you you can make a lot of money here, which you can, in a high volume store. they also say they promote from within, which they typically do not.

    Negotiation Details
    no negotiation, either take this pay rate or we move on.
