    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at Williams-Sonoma in February 2015.

The HR lady I had spoken with was a recent college grad, just as myself which made it much more comfortable for myself, and allowed me to speak much more conversationally rather than nervously trying to impress. However, the nervousness was in full swing come the Skype interview.
