    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Kirkland's (New York, NY).

    Interview

    Applied online, within a week I got a call back and interviewed within a few days. The interview was pretty relaxed, it was like talking with someone you had known for a really long time...basic interview questions about availability, dealing with difficult customers, how to deal with work related conflicts. The only issue I had was that I made it very clear I was unable to work during sundays, (mostly for religion) and she kept pushing and pushing for me to commit to so many sundays a month. At the end, she said she would call me within the next 2 days. Its been way past that and still havent heard back.
