    Interview

    I applied online got an email the same day with an invitation for an interview they send u a link to pick the time and date. I had my interview this Monday. She was very nice she asked very simple question but when I told her I had a full time job she told me that all the questions she had for me. I think it is a waste a time to have someone come in if they have a full time job and can only work certain hours. I felt like they really didn't look at my application. I got an email the next day letting me know i did not get the job.
