    It went by pretty well. He asked me some questions and I thought I answered them well enough. The other manager had to give me an interview because it was a 2 part interview. I don't know if They forgot about me or I wasn't as good like I thought I was. I didn't get the second interview.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Main Event (Plano, TX) in September 2016.

    Interview

    Quickest interview ever. 15 minute, 5 questions, Made it thru the resume cut, made it through the phone interviews, waited over a week for a face to face, only to be given 15 minutes. Two hours later, received the email that they had decided to go with someone else. Personal I feel it was show and to meet the quote, if questioned as to why they hired that person.
