Straightforward and fairly standard interview process. One to two interviewers. You should share your enthusiasm for books and customer service. Managers may have different preferences but these qualities shine when presented genuinely.

I interviewed at Barnes & Noble

Interview

One interview very loose customer service based questions, very little dialogue around leadership, task management and business development. The job itself entailed all of these topics. There could have been additional insight to the job in the interview process.
