I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at BookHolders.

They posted an ad online, sent an application via email, and had me set up an interview for sometime within the same week. The interview itself took 15 minutes and was just a basic confirmation of what I'd written on my application. There were no actual interview questions.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at BookHolders in March 2012.

    Interview

    Almost everyone who submits an applications is at least brought in for an interview. Interviews are very informal and quick, as there is a very high employee turnover rate, so the quality doesn't matter. As long as you can spell correctly and will accept less than minimum wage to work here while in college, you'll be hired on.

    All interview questions relate to availability during the first week of school, because anything after that is just extra.

    Negotiation

    There is no negotiation. You sign on for your first two weeks as a contractor, so that the owners can avoid paying taxes and such. You make less than minimum wage, and any disagreement is met with termination.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at BookHolders (College Park, MD) in March 2012.

    Interview

    Interview took about 10 minutes, and was completed by the CEO's mother. Questions were very generic, and mostly consisted of whether my class schedule had lots of openings so I could work. I was literally hired on during the interview, and began training immediately afterwards. If you can breathe, then you'll probably be hired, at least for the rush period.

    I was in search of a part time job to give me additional spending money while i was at college, a friend and current employee recommended that I apply to this company. I walked in and filled out a paper application, attached a resume, and submitted it to one of the clerks. A few days later I was contacted by phone and did a quick phone interview. They scheduled an in person interview where I met with a manager and discussed a few general things, and talked about my work experiences etc. I was offered the job at the end of the interview.
