    Applied online for apparel, got a call back in about a week, went to the interview, was interviewed by the HR, was asked basic questions about previous work experience, interview lasted 10-15 minutes max, was told I'd get a call back soon, got a call back the next to come in for another interview with store manager the same day, went to the interview, probably didn't last 2 minutes, basically told me what they expected of me and what I expected from the company, was hired on the spot, started working the following week. Even though I applied for seasonal, I was told that the company tends to keep people after seasonal permanently for part time or full time.

    There is really no interview, he just wants to know what hours you can work. The first thing he says is that full time is 29 hours. He then asks what's your availability and what experience you have. Just show up and be present and you are almost guaranteed the job.

    I had to constantly bug the HR manager for weeks before finally being called in for an interview. They asked a few basic questions, but otherwise I knew I was going to be hired.
