    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Advance America (Mobile, AL) in October 2015.

    Interview

    The interview was quick and to the point, everything sounded great. I was told there would be set hours and bonuses promised and I would be put in a store close to where I was moving to. Once hired, all if that changed and it took a month to call me back to work after I was hired.

On September 25 I was called and asked to come back in to pick-up a drug test form and to go in for a drug test. On September 28, I got a call back to come in for an observation interview where I observe the staff at a center to see if I still am interested. After that, they ran my background check and called every single one of my references. I was contacted October 5 to be told everything checked out and given a start date.
