    Straight forward. Asked me typical interview questions (Describe a time you went above and beyond) over the phone, then scheduled an in person interview. Very casual and easy interview, but I suppose a lot depends on the interviewer.

    I applied during the 2016 seasonal position. Very straight forward. Asked behavioral questions and what are you knowledgable about. Make sure that when answering behavioral questions, use an example from experience. The questions were similar to the ones listed on this site. I was offered the position at the end of the interview. Also, the email with all the information may come a week later. Do not be alarmed that they forgot about you.

    Very quick, informal interview with other employees in the same room. Seemed as though it was rushed. Question that were based more on personality than the skills required for the job. They did not give feedback on whether I got the job or not on the day I was told.
