    Interview

    Great Interview with questions on point and candid description of duties and expectations and benefits. It took a while to get interview ad background check completed thru online process. Interview was done in Group rather than 1:1 which did not seem fair to all participants to me - 1:1 was preferred.

    Interview

    Applied online. Took 3 hour due to terrible site construction. Interview was quick and asked general questions. Nothing too special. Helps to have a craft knowledge of somesort, though that's optional. Criminal and background check. No drug test. Very little training though. More of a figure it out as you go job.

    It was a job fair in a hotel. It was similar to speed dating but less personal. I was hired immediately as were 100 others. They weeded out by natural selection and then choose those they wanted to hire permanent after store set up.

    Interview

    Very laid back. I went in, we discussed what my interest was with the company, they asked some hypothetical questions and it was over. The manager was very nice and wanted me to be comfortable, not nervous. It was supposed to be a group interview with one other potential employee but they didn't show up.
