    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Goldfish Swim School (Dublin, OH) in September 2015.

    Interview

    The overall interview was a very easy process. There were not many questions and it was more common sense. They have you come shadow a shift to see if you can handle the pure chaos that happens when classes are going on. You typically are hired within days and starting your training.
