    Cashier Interview

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at Così.

    Interview

    It was a very brief, informal interview. I already knew several of the managers personally, and had been invited to interview at a franchise location, so my experience is not necessarily typical.
