    Application

    The process took 1+ weekinterviewed at Walking Company Holdings in February 2015.

    Interview

    Interviewed by another Store Manager. It went well. She set up a phone interview with the DM.
    I was not called for that interview time. When I called to follow up I was told another candidate had the first choice of time. A little rude. DM went through s courtesy interview for 15 minutes on the phone. He had made his choice before the call and wax wasting my time.
