    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at Cost Plus (New York, NY) in October 2017.

    Interview

    I applied online and within one to two days I got an email informing that they would be holding interviews on two specific days and to call the store and tell a manager what day I am interested in interviewing. About a week later I had my interview, i was asked to fill out an availability sign and date. By the way it went great and then on the next Tuesday which was exactly a week later I got a call offering me the position and they also sent an email with the offer and paper work to fill out and once a background check came out good I was good to go?

    Quite standard. 30 minute phone interview with HR rep. Invited for in person interview. Lovely environment and people. However was "ghosted" and never heard back after interview. A simple follow up and "No Thank You" goes a long way as your interviewees are most likely your customer.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Cost Plus (Pleasanton, CA) in March 2017.

    Interview

    Process was easy - I applied online about a week before I was called in for an interview. I came in and was directed to an office in the back and answered simple questions. It was one on one which was nice. I was told I would expect an email the next day on whether or not I got the job, didn't get one and decided to call three days later and they told me I would get an email that night which I did and I accepted the job.
