    Sales Associate Interview

    Anonymous Employee
    Accepted Offer

    Interview

    It was very informal. The manager didn't have a sheet of questions and did not take notes during the process. I questioned if he actually knew what he was doing. He also stammered quite a bit. The interview was very unprofessional on his part.

    They were so desperate that they told me the that day I was hired.

    Negotiation

    Pay was not discussed. I was told I got the job and they would call me when to come in for orientation.

    Supervisor(Key) Interview

    Anonymous Employee
    Accepted Offer

    Interview

    The interview process is done from ready made forms with a series of questions that would detail your experience in the position they are hiring for. The interview process is not terrible, it just doesn't leave much room for displaying what you know you can bring to the table, instead it focuses on what you have done in the past.
