    Very smooth, like a conversation. I made sure to ask question and incorporate a lot of company traditions. Care about the team and you should be fine. Make sure to speak to the manager and the store manager at your store before interviewing. After my interview, I spoke to the store manager at the store I was applying to and it was intimidating but it went well. BE YOURSELF.
