    Quick, easy, and got my questions answered when I asked. Did not feel judged or worried that I would say the wrong thing to not get hired. The woman who interviewed me and some others was very nice and respectable.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Follett (Westchester, IL) in May 2016.

    Interview

    One initial interview and a final round interview. One of the managers seemed almost robotic. Showed no emotion. The "final" interview seemed ok.. Something seemed a bit odd though. You had to prepare a Powerpoint presentation. Which seemed a bit far fetched for an entry level position.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Follett (Hayward, CA) in March 2018.

    Interview

    There was a 30 mins interview. The manager asked about your reaction to some situation. They would like to know your personality, responses, and comment sense. It was a very nice interview. If you have questions, you can ask at any time. The bookstore and the people are very nice to work with. The best is to listen to what the question was. Make sure you understand the question or request. Sometime you may think outside of the box. It depends on your personality. During the interview, make sure you have to be yourself. Do not ask some nonsense questions or make jokes.
