    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Barnes & Noble (San Antonio, TX) in March 2016.

    Interview

    Wonderful interview process, exceptional staff, great management. Interview was fair, concise, and well-done. The screening was about 20-30 minutes long and I spoke with the Cafe Manager. All of the Barnes & Noble staff are passionate about their craft. Even cafe workers (who do not directly work with books) are avid readers and ensure that all B&N departments feel like the book floor.
