    Interview

    Applied online, got an interview a week later. The interview was short, barely five minutes. I heard back within five days with an offer and accepted. The questions in the interview were simple, most about team work and how I work with others. I didn't have any other retail experience and barely any customer service but I got an offer.

    Two employees conducted the interview with me in the (tiny) back room adjacent to the sales floor where they proceeded to ask me a series of brief questions. It lasted approximately 10-15 minutes. Very casual. We also covered my schedule and desired hours. Questions were very easy to answer and the employees who conducted the interview were relaxed and personable.
