    Passed two interviews, then came in for the signing of the contract. They were friendly, made me feel at home, and asked at what department I wanted to work. I wanted something related to food and they had a cafeteria, so I went for that.

    Interview

    I got group interviewed with a bunch of high school kids and we all got asked the same question and we would all have to give an answer even if you just said "same thing" they were alright with that. HR more put off an "I want to be your friend" vibe instead of an "I'm your boss vibe."
