I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Barnes & Noble (Wesley Chapel, FL) in July 2017.

Interview

Had a phone interview with a manager first. Then they asked me to come in for an interview with another manager. I arrived early to the interview. Had to sit and wait for an hour until the manager came down to interview with me. The interview lasted about 10 minutes. They asked me if I could come in the next day for an interview with a different manager. Arrived at that interview at had to wait 20 minutes to be met with. They told me they would call me if they had a position for me. They called me a month later and offered me the job but I wouldn't be allowed to start for another month.

    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.

    Interview Questions

    • If you were working on a task, and someone asked you to start working on something else instead, what would you do?   Answer Question

    Negotiation

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