    Interview

    I was set up for a Skype interview with 2 groups consisting of two people each and they both lasted one hour. The interview was very easy. It was mostly HR related questions and more in depth look into my resume. After a week, they called and offered no explanation as to why they reached the decision in which they made.

    I applied online. The process took 3+ weeks. I interviewed at Natural Grocers by Vitamin Cottage.

    Interview

    Met a recruiter in person. Had two panel interviews. Took 2 personality assessments online and one that was proctored. Was evaluated by their consulting psychiatrist. The whole process took a little while. They always made me feel comfortable and were communivative. I tend to expound a lot when answering questions so I stopped and asked if I was giving too much information. They were very gracious. Study the company and do your due diligence. Make sure their values and products are something you can see yourself selling and being a part of. Remember this is retail and even though it is an exciting company it is still retail and it comes with all the good bad and the ugly of retail. Be able to answer what attracted you to the company. If your answer is justt finding another job to pay the bills is not a good answer.
