    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at Goodwill (Portland, OR).

    Interview

    I applied via Craigslist ad. The store manager called to set up an interview a few days later. She was engaging, kind, and direct. The interview was around 40 minutes, but that was probably because we got to talking about other things. I dressed well for the interview, and everytime I've had a friend come in for an interview it is stressed that should try to look sharp. When I was offered the position, I had to immediately go to a Kaiser facility to be drug tested.
