    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Barnes & Noble (Tampa, FL) in November 2013.

    Interview

    Hardly any interview. Literally just show up and they'll hire you. Not even a resume required. This is because they have a great demand for people as they have their rush period where they need a lot of work force

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3+ weeks. I interviewed at Barnes & Noble (DeKalb, IL) in October 2013.

    Interview

    First I had to apply online at their company website, and they first contacted me by phone. We scheduled a first interview that lasted about 15 minutes, then I went back for a second interview which lasted about a half hour. Both managers were both real knowledgeable and open, and are great people to work with. I had to submit a background check, which there was a bit of a hiccup with because the first submission wasn't received, but I was hired a little less than a month later.

    Negotiation

    There wasn't really any negotiation, I went to the second interview and was hired shortly after that.
