    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at Banana Republic (Arlington, TX) in July 2017.

    Interview

    Applied roughly 2.5 weeks ago, and got called in to do an interview. It was a group interview with 2 other individuals ( which took me by surprise). The hiring manager didn’t really ask an actual question, he more so just wanted our availability statuses. He was super chill and lenient, which made our interview go by in about 15-20 minutes.
