    Very easy spoke to district manager and got the job right away. Was extremely nervous because she had a very strong presence. She meant business and wanted to make sure who ever she chose was a good choice for the job.

    Interview

    Very general and what you'd expect for this position. Was offered the job after the interview. The hiring manager appreciated me bringing my resume, because I guess they don't get the resumes of the potential interviewees through Ann Taylor's hiring system.
