    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at Origins (Natick, MA) in September 2013.

    Interview

    I applied to Origins in the store after seeing they were hiring and received a call about a week later to schedule an interview. After my initial short interview about my past work experience I was told I would have a phone interview next. The phone interview is pretty awful. All of the questions had the same structure, where are you on a scale of 1-10 for positivity, loyalty, etc.. When was a time you were positive, loyal etc... After my phone interview I did not hear back for another week, then I was scheduled to come in for a third round interview with a manager.
