    I applied online. I interviewed at Ann Taylor (Boca Raton, FL).

    Interview

    I completed the online app and got a call back for an interview. I showed up to the store and was told to wait. After 10 minutes went by I was told if I could wait 30 min! So I walked around the mall for about 30 min. Finally after about another 15min , I sat down with the manager for the interview. I was hired immediately and was given my schedule. I was told to come in next week to start working. When I showed up my first day of work, the manager told me she found someone else that was more qualified. They did not bother to call me in advance!
