    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Big 5 (Riverside, CA) in November 2016.

    Interview

    There was a brief interview with someone from Human Resources, which was fairly basic with simple questions. After that there were two members from the technical team who asked about my related experience/skills. All interviewers were reasonable and easy to talk to, and the technical questions were mostly simple and very fair.

    Very desperate to hire someone, very short and informal interview. She asked me why I wanted to work there and then interrupted me when an individual she did not like entered the store. She proceeded to talk about this customer then told me I was hired if I wanted the job.
