    Interview

    Got called in to have an interview with HR and store manager. The interview went really well, it was like talking to a friend. Got a call a few days after the interview to come in for a drug test and was called about a week later and offered the job when the drug test and background check came back. All in all, it was a pleasant process.

    The application was easy to complete. The in-person interview was pleasant and professional. It lasted about 30 minutes. It was conducted by one of the Assistant Store Manager and consisted of several standardized questions. I was given plenty of time to gather my thoughts and answer. Preferred answer was to share something specific from my past experience. Excellent process!
